eat.run.hope {the best sunday run + brunch ever}

Well…I don’t know what you did yesterday but Mike and I got up, unswayed by the cold, rain and wind, put on multiple layers of running gear and went to Eat.Run.Hope. Yep, that’s right, we both ran. Mike, the non runner in our house, did his first race. The gods must have known because things started to warm up a bit and the sun came out for the run. Afterwards, we scurried over to the chefs tent for what was the best post-run meal ever! But beyond getting our exercise for the day and filling our bellies with yummy food we were really happy to have been given the opportunity to support the Fetal Hope Foundation which provides resources and financial support to families facing and coping with fetal diseases. Thanks to all over 300 runners and walkers, participating restaurants and volunteers, over $60,000 was raised for this great cause. It was so wonderful to see all the people who came out to support the event but what really got me was seeing all the chefs who were there yesterday working their tables and serving their food. These are chefs that work the line people so they were there early in the morning after working all night Saturday. That is quite a testament to how they feel about their colleagues Angela and Ethan Stowell. It was a fab event. If you weren’t able to make it this year, make sure you plan to be there next year. Form a team, raise some dough, run or walk, nosh and imbibe…and plan to participate in a wonderful event with your friends and support the littlest among us and their families.
