LUPEC does Eat.Run.Hope (and drink)


On April 14th the ladies of LUPEC and several of their spouses participated in Eat Run Hope. This event supports fetal health and is presented by Ethan Stowell Restaurants and Eastside Maternal Fetal Medicine. Team LUPEC raised over 500 dollars for the cause. In addition to the usual suspects we had Ben Perri of Zig Zag fame on team LUPEC. The majority of Team LUPEC participated in the 5k with Ben Perri crushing it and winning the whole entire run! Way to go Ben Perri he finished his 5k in 19minutes and 53 seconds!
 Several of the LUPECers before the 5k!

We made sure to imbibe plenty too. Rocky Yeh was making delicious Bloody Marys. Mimosas, champagne and beer were available as well.   
 In addition to our imbibing, a very important aspect to any LUPEC event we also noshed on awesome food. One of the LUPEC favorites was Tom Douglas’ grilled adobo pork belly super nachos! Some other highlights were roasted pig with salsa verde from Dots Delicatessen, Fideos from Il Corvo and ice cream from Poppy Basil Cinnamon with strawberry sauce and almond streusel was delicious but it was hard to say if it was better than the banana ice cream with fudge sauce coconut and mango marshmallow.
Everyone had a great time and went home with full bellies. Next year Eat Hope Run should have a few extra cases of champagne to keep up with the ladies of LUPEC! 

Thanks to Danielle Fague for eating, running, hoping, and blogging! This event really was so much fun besides raising funds for such a good cause. And speaking of that- if you didn't get a chance to donate, feel free to do that now!
I hope that even more of the ladies will participate next year!
