there are no other words to explain it.

from the moms of two of my close friends (mama g and mama clarke) taking to the track for the survivors lap, michael g's sharing during luminaria, the midnight rosary to st. peregrine, relaying it american-style with the canadians, or relishing in the role of team captain instead of event was simply amazing.

i loved it.

and how we rocked the house! team merrill took home the top corporate team award ($47,500 raised so far), top online fundraising team award, and the best tent site. i was awarded the top online individual fundraiser, with over $5,000 of my $9,000+ raised online. over $640,000 raised so far by the event for the cure for cancer.


our tent site was amazing. designed by tony marino, lighting and power by sir timmy of monaco, it glowed a magenta purple at night, with the dark silhouettes of runners brightened by a mobile (made from a turkey rotisserie, no less!) of the same runners illuminated with white light. you had to see it to believe it. people stopped by all saturday offering praise, wanting to see how we did it, and called it "an event on its own!".

more to come, but wanted to share this before i headed to bed. in the office tomorrow, leaving for michigan on wednesday. so looking forward to waking up saturday morning in my own cozy bed. in the meantime...
