So, why did I need that restful night of sleep I mentioned earlier?
Well, I had big plans today to help teach a Zumbathon for the Cure…or Party in Pink as the Zumba folks are calling it…though I didn’t want you to get confused with my pink party, which is totally unrelated. Today, me, my friend Megan, and lots of other instructors in my company raised money for the Susan G Komen foundation.
Yup, this would make 2 Zumbathons in the last month, since I went to the one in Virginia (click to view)!
Check out the refreshment table they had set up! I was eyeing those muffins big time – they were homemade!
Anywho, we arrived early, but before we knew it, it was time to get started!
We had a great turnout!
I co-led Boro Boro and Desi Girls (the song I choreographed…woohoo!)
I brought liquid refreshment for me and Megan in the form of coconut water. Yum!
Everyone did a wonderful job and the energy in the room was kickin!
I led one of the last songs – a participant-request – Work by Missy Elliot.
So fun! I wish you all could have been there dancing with us!
Did I mention this Zumbathon was 2 hours long! Just think how far you can run in 2 hours! That’s like a really fast half marathon…or an average-paced 15K (at least what I can tell from my limited running knowledge). Phew!
I definitely snagged some of those mini muffins (zucchini, banana, cranberry) after the Zumbathon was over. But that wasn’t the best part.
The best part was that we raised over $7,000 today for Susan G Komen! Yay! Go team!
