The ReeseStrong 5K and Charlotte Lollipop Kids Run is this Saturday!!!
The ReeseStrong 5K and Charlotte Lollipop Kids Run is this Saturday!!! Are you ready?If you have not registered, you still have time! You can register online through Thursday at midnight at www.reesestrong.org OR in person at the packet pick up here in Royal Glen Friday from 4-7 or Saturday from 2-4. We have 274 people registered as of yesterday!IF YOU ARE PARTICIPATING IN THE RACE/WALK - here are some things you may want to know:1) Packet pick up - Friday from 4-7pm OR Saturday from 2-4pm here in Royal Glen.2) Parking - I recommend carpooling if you can! There will be parking in the neighborhood on the streets of Royal Glen and there is a parking lot with some additional spaces as well. Overflow will be directed to a church just north of our neighborhood with a shuttle back to the neighborhood. I would shoot to be here no later than 3:30 and no earlier than 2 (we have another event in the neighborhood from 11-2).3) There will be a RAFFLE for some wonderful gifts and gift cards. If you would like to participate, please bring cash! We have restaurant gift cards, spa services, a big Longaberger basket - just to name a few...don't miss out!4) We are still in need of some volunteers - mostly to help guide runners during the race. If you can help out please let us know!This is gearing up to be a busy week. At the end of the week, I have a conference to attend in N. VA (Friday and Saturday) and then I will be rushing back here for the race. Granny and Gramps will arrive on Wednesday and we plan to immediately put them to work! Fortunately, this is a "no-Velcade" week for Charlotte. Her appetite has already picked up. She ate a good deal yesterday during her playdate at the Ferias. Lots of popcorn and chocolate milk. Then she came home and ate even MORE popcorn and chocolate milk. This morning, she ate 3 bowls of cereal! Now she is resting but she was up and awake at 3 AM (as was Roger...thanks, dear).I am hoping that maybe we are "over the hump" of this syndrome and maybe another week will have Charlotte back to normal. We have a visit with Dr. Khan on Wednesday. Plans are kind of up in the air for Saturday's race although we have every intention of having Charlotte there for the big day. Roger and I had a very nice date yesterday. We had planned to do dinner and a movie but we just ended up going to a LONG dinner and talking and then missed the movie times so we used the opportunity to walk off our huge meal and do some window shopping (and a little actual shopping) at Short Pump Mall. Gotta get a move on before the day runs away...Rachel
