Every year for the past 13 years, I participate in a Women's 5K in Allentown, PA with over 5,000 women. It is one of the largest events in the country. Several years back when Melissa was diagnosed and began her fight, she released her wonderful song I Run for Life and when I heard it I knew this was the song they should play before the first starter's gun goes off. You see they do a survivor's parade at the beginning of the event and I knew this song was perfect. Well, so did the event's organizers. They liked it so much that it is now played every year and there isn't a dry eye in the parkway. What a great song by an inspiring woman whom I have grown to love and admire. Please continue to show your strength, peace , love and keep running for life! I know I will!
