For the second year in a row I joined the parade of pink in downtown Austin yesterday, running in the Komen Austin Race for the Cure. Go here to see my gallery of photos.
Women with pink mustaches. Guys with pink wigs. Couples in matching pink tutus. Crowds of people in pink crowns, pink T-shirts, pink shoes and pink feather boas.
In all, more than 9,200 people participated, raising more than $351,000. (Fund-raising continues through Dec. 16.
