color bomb!

Yesterday I participated in a Color Me Rad Run ( to benefit the Ronald McDonald House Charities. It was so much fun! People of all ages and backgrounds walked or ran 5K and got color bombed in the process. There were no pressures to be fast since there were no timers. Everyone was smiling. The hats, costumes, and funky socks were quite a sight. It’s one of the rare times adults can be playful and get “dirty.” The weather was beautiful. This is an awesome walk/run for beginners and folks who are regular runners. 🙂







You go girl!

7th Annual You Go Girl 5K Run

Started and ended at the Brewster Street Ice House on Saturday, October 6th, 2012 in Corpus Christi, Texas

Event Details: “The purpose of You Go Girl! is to create a positive and joyful experience that encourages more women to enter organized activities, get involved with a healthy training program at any level and to become aware of health issues that concern them.  This year the beneficiary is First Friday.  First Friday was created in 1994 by a small group of local women who came together to fight breast cancer in South Texas.  Proceeds from this events along with Christus Spohn Health System’s annual contributions, have underwritten thousands of screening mammograms for the women of South Texas.”

a great little toy story

I remember trying to win a toy at a theme park for my sister when we were younger. It took me a long time and plenty of coins, but eventually I won a big stuffed dalmatian dog. We were beaming for the rest of the afternoon. I don’t know whatever happened to that prize, but I am glad to have the good memory.

So how cool are this gentleman’s carnival skills and how wonderful that he donates all of his winnings:

Who knew that such an “odd” skill could make such a difference for others?
