The sweetest pink there is

I own several pink shirts, but this one is one that I'm extra-proud to be wearing. Money alone couldn't buy it -- I had to run 13.1 miles to get it.

And speaking of pink, the image below is quite possibly the most significant and important pink there is -- this symbol of courage, hope, life and love. I saw many runners wearing the pink ribbon in last week's race. My grandmother and aunt have fought -- and beat -- breast cancer, so it has a place in my heart, too. Now go and get that mammogram, ladies!

Pink suits you well !!
I only knew here on the blogs the meaning of pink color for Americans. I never heard about it here in Europe. Usually pink is considered for something sweet like baby girls who are always dressed in pink. So for me it's hard to associate pink with cancer, I won't even try it !

Way to go! I could never run, but I can walk and am doing more and more of it. I will be so ready when I walk again next year for Breast Cancer.

Thanks for stopping by my pink picture. I am wearing my pink shirt now, too.

Great take on the pink topic. And 13 miles is a big WOW!

Certainly these days you cannot possibly here the word pink and not automatically think of breast cancer awareness!
