Corri La Vita - Breast Cancer Run

I just had the pleasure of completing a 5km run benefiting breast cancer research...It was exhilarating ! It always makes you feel good to be a part of something so important. Thousands gathered in Piazza Signoria this morning to start the races. There were two races - a competitive 10K run, and a 5km walk/run. The walk took you through the streets of Florence, and along the way you stopped in Giardini's (Gardens). The gardens ranged from the famous ones like Boboli Gardens, Giardino Casino, Borgo San Jacobo to private estate gardens like the courtyard that my apartment overlooks. I must say it was pretty exciting coming home after the race to see so many people admiring the garden I have been blessed to look at every single day.

This city has so many stories to tell and so many secret places to discover. I feel unbelievably fortunate to have participated in this wonderful cause, and see so many new places along the way. Behind all the rustic, some graffiti filled buildings, lies exquisite and timeless treasures - All you have to do is walk in, and discover the beauty.
