I have registered for my third race this year: Divas Half Marathon & 5k Race Series. Yeap, this diva is running again! The race will be held in Saint Augustine, FL (Road trip) in December of this year. It’s a long way down the road, but I’ll be patient. I registered for the 5k option since it’s more my comfort level, I wish they had a 10k too, oh well.
I had a few reasons for choosing this particular race after reading about it. Some vain, lol! some serious. I know… So, let’s jump into it, shall we?
- The color of the race is pink, my favorite color, hence the name of my website. It’s glamorous, so I will fit right in. Lol! Each participant gets a pink tutu. There’s a boa and tiaras station right before the finish line. Did I hear anything about the bubbly??? And of course a medal upon completion. How can you go run? I know this will be a fun race for me.
- The race location Saint Augustine is a beautiful city to visit and is a few hours away from home. I figured I can make a weekend getaway out of it as well. Who says no to a weekend getaway? Not this diva.
- Not only are you running for fun, but also to raise awareness for breast cancer. You can start a fundraiser (which I have) to raise money for the cause The proceeds will go to BREAST CANCER CHARITIES OF AMERICA, a non profit organization. You can learn more about them by clicking on the link.
So guys this brings me to this, will you help me reach my goal of $1000 for this beautiful cause? I know you’ve either been affected, or know of someone who’s been affected by breast cancer. I know people, and it sucks. It is upsetting to know there still isn’t a cure for this horrendous disease. If we all put together and do the best we can with the resources available to us, we can make a difference.
