So, some of you were probably wondering why I was packing last night when I just got back from a major trip to the Bahamas…
I made a last minute trip to visit my good friend, Sara of Zumba by Sara, who was organizing a Party in Pink zumbathon in Roanoke, VA to raise money for Susan G. Komen.
We left bright and early at 5:30 am this morning. The sunrise was gorgeous
As was the fog pouring through the valley.
We hit up Bojangles for a quick breakfast. I got an egg biscuit and coffee.
And then we were off to the gym.
We got there just as people were lining up to get in. Perfect timing!
And soon enough, it was time to get started!
Here are some photos from the event:
It was 2 hours of dancing BLISS! I got to lead one song and helped out throughout the crowd with the others.
I almost didn’t make this trip since the invite was kind of last minute, and the thought of waking up at 5am and traveling after having been away from home (thanks to my Bahamas trip last week) was a bit daunting. But a good friend once said, “I can sleep when I’m dead”, and I figured lack of sleep was less important than helping out a friend. So, I said, Carpe Diem and chose to make this trip today, and I am SO thankful I did.
Have you ever had a Carpe Diem moment? What happened?
