What a whirlwind! The race is the biggest part of our weekend...kinda like planning a wedding. A year of planning and it is over in one day and you are exhausted after! MBM did a fabulous job again this year. With well over 5oo racers...we could have been nearly 7oo, that is how many people we turned away, the race raised over $40,000which is split between the City of Sea Isle to rebuild the Veterans Park and the Injured Marine Semper Fi Fund Early morning set up...we started at 4:30 AM. You would not believe the riffraff wandering around at that time in the morning, not to mention the guy we woke up sound asleep on the pavement dead center in town...under the American flag. Team Semper Fi arriving...truly amazing young men! You can read more about them here! Kids, ours included, couldn't resist playing in the sand! Getting ready to swim...we had over 500 racers this year! This year we had the finish line, lined with kids waving and giving out American flags...This is Lulu and her gal pal Molly... After the race wrapped up..it was lunch, beers, nap, and beach!!!! GREAT DAY!!!
