"I BELIEVE IN PINK! I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles."— Audrey Hepburn

“To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.” - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Every night, friends. You have done what you could. Let it go.

“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day. You shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.” ― Ralph Waldo Emerson

What!?! Another Race!?! Yup...And before you say anything...Yes, we are nuts!!! LOL...


So that banner up there is a clue...We here in Maryland, decided sometime during the last year, that it might be a good idea to host a second race...now by race, I am referring to a Susan G Komen Race for the Cure...I am the Survivor Activities Chair for the MD RFTC. I have been for several years, and I am actually a past Race Chair...
Those of us that are chairs and hold other leadership positions for the "big race" agreed to mentor those that were to be stepping up to volunteer to run the "little race" to be held in Ocean City, MD in April. Our race is held in October. 
We had upwards of over 30,000 participants and raised over 3 million dollars! 
Once that was done we began to plan for the smaller, inaugural race to be held on the eastern shore:)
I was to mentor, my counter part...It turns out that I was a lucky one. The lady that stepped up to do the survivor tent at the shore is a gem, as is her special committee. I remember many of them from the initial meeting when we visited to talk it up and recruit...I spoke at that event...
Well, we all traveled to the ocean last weekend for a "fun" weekend. We stayed in donated condos that were beautiful, and of an ilk that I will never be able to pay for...lol...
Here are a few pictures...

That is the view from our room...
Now let me just say that I spent the weekend with some of my very favorite people in the world!!
Saturday, which was set up day, was gorgeous!

One of my roommates...

A bit of whimsy in the survivor tent...
The ladies did a lovely job with their beach theme and the decorations...They tried to say I was a big help...


Here is an example of one of the centerpieces...


Another one...


A closer view...


It was earth day and so we gave out seedlings...


Even Goldfish! Can you believe it!?! 
And all of this was to be taken home by the survivors at the end...


Pretty beachy, Yes?


Everybody got into the spirit!


Can you find Pinkim!?! I am there!
And one more...


That's the start line on the boardwalk of Ocean City, MD
OK, just one more...


See those boards?...that's right, they are WET!! It poured, ALL DAY, Sunday!!
Oh well...a fun, if wet time, was had by all...we had hoped for 3,000 participants and I believe we topped that...so...success...Now...we plan for the big one...Had a meeting on Wednesday...
Did I mention that I was sick on Monday and Tuesday?...and that Monday was World Book Night USA? No? Well, that has to be another post...For now...
Here's a link...Please click on it...You won't regret it...



Linking up...
