1. Running: Over the last few weeks, we participated in a few 5ks for great causes. The first race was actually a walk, organized by Water Mission, to raise awareness for the global water crisis by carrying buckets of unfiltered water in solidarity with women and children across the world who make walks like this everyday. We saw firsthand how water filtration systems work to help distribute clean water around the world.
Doughnut Dash 5k for the Race 4 Achievement Scholarship Fund. We ran a mile and a half down the greenway to Krispy Kreme where we ate a dozen donuts as a team, and ran back. That's my kind of race! #caloriesburnedcaloriesearned
Food Truck Rally 5k. I really enjoyed this trail run through Middleton Place Woodlands, and afterwards, we were rewarded with a finisher's medal (that doubles as a bottle opener!) and tons of food truck food. Mike met me at the finish line with delicious sandwiches from Cory's Grilled Cheese and Bac'n Me Crazy. I received complimentary entry into this race to publicize the event on my blog.
It's been forever since I did one of those in Connecticut!
2. Golf: I almost had a hole-in-one a couple of weeks ago, which was cool! I heard it hit the flagstick, but it just popped out. We also went down to Hilton Head earlier this month for the Heritage golf tournament. It's one of the best Lowcountry parties of the year, and I love when the event overlaps with Easter, because they have the most fantastic sunrise service on the 18th green on Easter Sunday morning.
Escapada Living Signature Store, and I am seriously obsessed with their summer line - give me all the OTS looks, bright colors, and tassels! I got a couple of pieces while I was there (helloooo awesome discount) and can't wait to share them soon.
my Wednesday post, you know I'm having a serious love affair with spring. We've been spending all the time we can outside: lunch at Vintage Coffee, happy hour at Revelry, walks on Folly Beach, and fire/outdoor movie night with friends!
Linking up for Oh hey, Friday, Five on Friday, High Five for Friday, and two doses of Friday Favorites
