I've thrown tantrums (who hasn't?), made ridiculous demands and gone through some pretty crazy stuff but my mum (and dad too!) has always loved me for me. For that, I thank you and dedicate this special run to you.
Wait! What run?
Right! I'm talking about this one:
Yes, I don't run prettily.
Today was the Mother's Day Classic Run! It takes place annually across Australia to raise funds for breast cancer, which brings me to my second topic...
If you're thinking "Food?", I'm sorry to disappoint you!
A non-food post?!
It's breast cancer. It's the most common cancer in women worldwide.(1) So NO!, women shouldn't be afraid or ashamed to talk about it. It's as simple as asking your mum or friend or colleague if she's had a mammogram during her yearly check-up. Even knowing what to look for during self-examination helps but do you know what to look for? If you don't, ask someone. No harm will be done if you ask your doctor during your next medical check-up!
When it comes to health, don't be ashamed. Don't be shy. And most importantly, don't be ignorant because breast cancer does not discriminate.
A short glimpse of sunshine in the otherwise, rainy and cold morning!
Again, Happy Mother's Day to my mum, grandma, aunt and all the other women out there!!
Have an amazing Sunday!
