Team Fantasstic

I was excited for and proud of one of my besties, Gina, that headed up Team Fantasstic in honor of the Colon Cancer Chick's missing sigmoid colon. Team Fantasstic walked, jogged, "jogwalked" and ran during the 2012 Get Your Rear in Gear 5K in its home base of the Twin Cities.

I blogged about it a few months ago, but the race has arrived and so many I don't even know joined Gina's efforts to bring awareness and raise funds to help colons and missing colons and sick colons and cancerous colons and long lost colons across the country and in her (and my) beloved Twin Cities. 

I am a Minnesotan-by-proxy and can't help but feel the love for this team and this cause coming together in this city!

Running + Colon Cancer + Twin Cities = My Trifecta!

I would have loved nothing more than to be there this year, but it was a treatment week for me and so I cheered from the comfort of my couch while munching mint chocolate truffles nausea pills. Don't worry, I'll be there next year kids!

In the mean time, I'll have to live vicariously through fabulous photos while I await the side effects of my Neupogen shot.

Team Shirts are Fantasstic!
These 5Kers are to be feared more than a colonoscopy prep!

Queen Figi and Gina!
Getting their rears in gear!
