Something I enjoy? Combining my love of fitness with raising money for a good cause! I am teaming with my friend Taylor over at Lifting Revolution (we met during the Charleston Half Marathon) to raise money for the Special Olympics! How are we doing this? We’re going to be running the Color Me Rad race in…our wedding dresses!
Taylor wrote a post/did a VLOG on the topic here. I want to help her shatter her original record! If you’d like to donate- go here! No pressure (of course). Would love any shout outs in your blog posts too!!
I realized once I had committed to this awesome cause..that I hadn’t put my wedding dress on in 5 1/2 years.. Luckily, it fit!
In other exciting news, my new releases arrived yesterday ! Wahooo! Now…learning time!
Tomorrow is my Mom’s birthday. I’m celebrating with her today! HAPPY BIRTHDAY MAMA!
What are you up to today? Other than celebrating my Mom’s birthday, I’m working & teaching Body Step.
Happy Birthday to your mom!!!! Have fun celebrating with her tonight!
Congrats! How awesome you will be running in your wedding dress and it looks beautiful on you! I need to neb on your site to see wedding pics!
Have a fabulous day love! <3
Thank you!! http://www.itzyskitchen.com/2008/08/1st-anniversary.html
Oh I love that you're doing this! please keep us updated on the process! Good luck!
Ha, this will be SO MUCH FUN!!!!!!!
Have a great time with your mom today!
Thats' so fun! It's like a trash the dress but for a great cause!
Happy birthday to your Mom! That is a wonderful cause and it sounds like a fun time doing it too! Win-Win!
Woohoo! Sounds like so much fun! Good luck with the run and have with your mom today!
Wow-- will that ruin the dress?? I know it's for a good cause, and that's awesome of you-- I don't know if I could do it! It's funny, because I know I'll never wear the dress again (hopefully, ha)...but I guess I just have that sentimental attachment to it!
Definitely! It will 100% ruin the dress ;). I actually wore two dresses during my wedding day (one during the ceremony and one during the reception). I have always wanted to trash my dress though. I am going to save a snip of it for Kaylin.
Sounds like fun! Kudos to you for wearing your wedding dress. I don't think I could do that! Mind you, my dress has been tucked away for 15 yrs so I'm not sure why it would matter. LOL
Happy birthday to your mom!! OMG that's so awesome of you - what an amazing idea!
What??? This is so cool! I've done the Color Me Rad Race last year and LOVED it and now I want to run it again for this reason alone! Such a great idea!
awesome news E!
The dress still looks amazing! So exciting to be doing this with you! :)
SO fun! I'm so glad your'e doing this race too! I will not be running in a wedding dress (ha ha) but I love that you are and will see you there!!!
Wow, that is an incredible thing to do! I'm going to share on my FB page now!
And I'm wishing your mom a wonderful birthday!!!
What a neat idea. I think I am going to do the color run too!
What a fun event Erica! I helped a tiny bit, wish I could donate more :( Happy birthday to your Momma!!
You're amazing! You didn't have to do that! I heart you!
Such a fun idea! I'll be at the color run, too! Ha - no wedding dress for me!
Yayyy! So exciting you're doing it too! Whoop whoop! We need to take a blogger picture ;)
Oh how fun! And for a good cause, I love that!
I love that you're doing this! So much fun and for a good cause! Happy birthday to your mom :)
That ROCKS that you got your LM releases!! I want mine SO bad.
Not that you aren't always gorgeous girl but that wedding photo of you is just stunning as ever!!! Happy birthday to your mama - hope you ladies have a marvelous time celebrating :) today's agenda includes work, maybe a short workout, Stella & Dot party and hanging with the man. Thank goodness this week is halfway ovah is it Friday yet?! ;)

YAY!!!!! That is awesome!! That is such a great idea! Erica, you inspire girl! xoxo
you are so awesome, dear. and happy bday momma!
You're the sweetest!
Great idea! I ran a Color Me Rad race last fall, right before my wedding. I don;t think there was any chance of my running it in my wedding dress back then. Ha!
what a cool idea! love that dress (you look gorgeous as always!!), have fun running in it :) happy bday mom!
I love your attitude towards fitness. It's so easy to get sucked into the mindset of having to have a six pack or be perfect instead of having fun!
i soooo miss my les mils classes. i hurt my back a few months ago and haven't been able to go. hopefully i heal soon, i love it when the new launches come out. you look so cute in your wedding dress, i'm too scared to try mine on, who know if it would fit! the run looks like such a great cause! have a good weekend :)
What a fun race and a great idea to raise money too for a good cause. Last year we did a fundraiser when we ran the Tinkerbell Disney half marathon and it was really emotional to see the people who benefited from our raised money, they surprised us and came to our pre-race luncheon. I'll go check out the link now.
I don't think my wedding dress will fit past my knees right now...lol, with the big pregnant belly and all. Your wedding dress looks great on you and I hope I can wear mine again soon (just for fun and inside the house).
What a fun idea! The dress is gorgeous on you!
Fuuuuuun!! Love this! You look great girl!
