Race to Remember Virtual 5k/10k!

Good morning lovelies!

How is your week going?

I feel like I've been a bottomless pit all week - thankfully, I've kept myself fairly active to counteract my appetite - and I've stuck to mostly healthy snacks!

Snack Attack!

I've also kept myself super busy with my fundraising efforts for the Alzheimer's Association - #5050February is going strong - you can still enter for your chance to win half of the money raised!

In case you missed it (and if you didn't, sorry for beating a dead horse), I'm team captain for a charity relay team for Reach the Beach - Team Tutu Hot to Handle.


Each member of our team has been touched by Alzheimer's disease in one way or another and as a charity team, we're committed to raising money for the prevention and cure of the disease.


This year, we've doubled our efforts and will be participating in both RTB MA (May 17-18th) and RTB NH  (September 13-14th), running 400+ miles for the cause! 

In addition to the #5050February challenge, we're putting together a virtual 5k/10k in March and we'd LOVE to have you join us!

Not only will you get one of these sweet participant medals:


But we've also teamed up with a number of sponsors who generously donated some amazing products to raffle off as prizes for participating!
