Girls' Weekend at Dewey Beach 2016

For Girls' Weekend this year we went to Dewey Beach for the Dewey Goes Pink 5K and walk. Ash, Megan, and I were going to do the 5K and Janice and Christina were going to do the walk but poor Christina got sick. We had a lovely roomy Air BnB condo by the beach, which we enjoyed despite the rain. The 5K was scenic, but the best part of the weekend besides the amazing people participating was the after party. Holy cow, Dewey knows how to party. There were mixed drinks, beer, roast pig, mac n'cheese, and cookies, though the cookies went very fast. Live music! Group toasts! Just so much fun and all for a good cause.

We were sad to split up from Janice when she went to the walk area and we went to the walk area. And we were jealous when she texted us that she was already done.

And we're off!

Yes!

After the race we met at a designated location so we wouldn't all get lost.

Sorry Porky.

The band was really good.

It kept raining on us, so we decided to go back and have Megan's Magic Hurricanes. Which we did. Which then rendered us unable or unwilling to go out and party. But we had a lot of fun at the condo, and did ultimately get dressed to go to dinner.

Next year, if it's not raining, maybe we can drink at the beach?

Making pouty faces because Janice went home early because she's a new mom!

We ended up back at The Starboard for dinner. Dinner was yummy but the hurricanes started catching up with us, and we started feeling ill. So we walked back after dinner, now in the POURING RAIN. We felt grateful it hadn't rained in the 5K. We swear.

Ash pretending to hug Janice and Christina- I promised I'd photoshop but nah.

Sunday morning, we were recovered, so we went to Greenman Juice Bar & Bistro in Rehoboth, and then we tried to do a little souvenir shopping but everything said Rehoboth so I guess it's just going to be the race shirt. I'm super excited for the next Girls' Weekend. Soon I hope!

Brunch at Greenman Juice Bar & Bistro was extra delicious!

Dewey Goes Pink raised $65,000+ this year (Almost $300,000 in the six years it has been held.)

*My Race Stats:
Time: 43:09.9, Pace: 13:55/mile, Place: 888/1207
37 F, Bib #197, Division 30-39 F, Division Place: 116/150
Worse time than last 5K, but the ranking made me feel less bad, haha.
