Reach the Beach 2014

This weekend was AMAZING and so much fun but I am 110% still in need of sleep, sleep, and then some more sleep. This weekend I was on a team with 11 other amazingly fun people for Reach the Beach! It’s a 24 hour road race, covering 200 miles with 12 or 6 people and ends on the Beach. We did the race from Cannon Mountain to Hampton Beach this weekend. Some legs run at night ( i.e. 2 am runs in the woods), some are up hill and some are straight up hill, some are through farms and some are through little NH towns. You sleep almost nothing, eat almost everything, and seriously have the best time ever! I was nervous about the night run ( actually loved it, and ran fast! My team has sparklers on course and danced for me, so that was epic and made me forget the Bears!), You sleep minimal ( but when we did it was under the stars- stunning!), and you just have a blast! We did it as an American Themed team and carried the American Flag almost the entire 200 miles.

This weekend was spent having so much fun celebrating my friend in South Carolina on her Bachlorette party. It was actually a “Jack and Jill” ( Bachelor and Bachellorette party) which was awesome but boy can those boys party! I don’t think I have ever taken so many FireBall shots in my life ha.

It was so much fun meeting all the bridesmaids and friends before the wedding ( in October) and really of course so much fun catching up with the bride herself. Also a fun twist was getting to see the future Ms and Mr together, relaxed, and having a blast on vacation. It was really nice to also meet all of his friends and groomsmen before the wedding too. Isn’t it awesome how you love your friends, you meet there friends and you love them too?!?! It makes total sense that you would like their other friends too, but it’s just such a blast when you really all click!

Main points and highlights then some photo’s…because everyone loves photo’s right!
