I will be participating in the 13th annual Silent No More walk and run for ovarian cancer. Despite losing over 70 pounds, my left knee is still not able to handle a 5k run. Now that I’m able to throttle back a bit on the hours at the office, perhaps I can get some bicycling in next season to get the knee strengthened.
Rosland Park is in Edina near Southdale. We were allowed to park at Southdale last year but not this year. Here’s a bit more information about the event:
Limited parking is available at Rosland Park primarily for handicap parking and an area for Survivor Drop Off. Additional parking is available at the office buildings at 6600 France Avenue and 6800 France Avenue ONLY – please follow the directions of our parking volunteers! A shuttle bus will provide a ride between the southernmost lot at 6800 France Avenue to Rosland Park starting at 7:30am-11:30am. Please allow for additional time to walk or ride the shuttle to the park.

I’m doing this to in honor of Lucy. We participated last year and she had every intention of participating this year. I formed a team if anyone would care to join me. The team link is at http://2012mocawalkrun.kintera.org/kenhopperstad. I set some low fundraising and recruiting standards (already reached in both cases), so I’m not hitting anyone up for donations.
