Diva Dash

This past Saturday I participated in the Diva Dash. The Diva Dash is a womens-only 5k run/walk (plus a 1k walk for little Divas) that raises money for a great organization called Girls on the Run. In addition to the entry fee I made a small donation, and along with a warm fuzzy feeling I also got the title "Fairy Godmother" and a fancy foam tiara to wear on my head while I ran:

Nope, it's not the Statue of Liberty - it's me, in a tiara!

It was a fun way to spend a Saturday morning, and there's something really cool about running with a bunch of women, and only women. I hate to sound cliched, but it was empowering.

So fast the camera couldn't catch me! Or, so fast that Tom's crappy cell phone camera couldn't focus. One of the two.

An interesting sight: all the men on the sideline, and all the women participating.

The Diva Dash was so successful that our local paper even covered it. I can't wait to participate next year!
