Pints, Prizes and a Great Cause

I knew I would not be exercising tonight, because I made plans to go to Pint Night, a fundraiser for the Brandford Land Trust.

The mission of the Branford Land Trust is to, “preserve open space in Branford and to promote the community’s appreciation of Branford’s diverse natural features.” If you’ve ever been to Branford before, you know the land is beautiful, and I think Pint Night was a great way to support a wonderful non-profit!

The event started at the Branford Trailblazer where you paid $5 for a pint glass which entered you in a raffle that had tons of cool prizes.

I love drinking beer for a good cause!

I didn’t win any of the 10 – 12 prizes, but then again, I ONLY win raffles when a Vera Bradley product is involved. I adore VB, but I’d love to up my game and start winning a car, an exotic vacation, the lotto … you know, the small stuff.


After the raffle, our tickets allowed us to fill our pint glass at Mangos Bar and Grille! Prizes, beer and hanging around a running store for a good cause … I can’t think of anything better!

While I’m totally not a beer drinker, I manged to suffer through one pint of Blue Moon and another pint of wheat beer.

I can't wait to have my first run in these!

I also splurged and ordered a delicious Margherita pizza that could have fed two people!

After my wild night, I will be back at the gym tomorrow focusing on weights.

I have a busy few days ahead of me including a challenging, hilly 7 mile course with my running group on Saturday and a possible 3.4 mile race on Sunday!

After my busy weekend, I’ll finally be ready to break in my new Vibrams!

I can’t wait to tell you all about it!
