4th annual Run for the Fallen Maine

4th annual Run for the Fallen Maine

Sunday August 21, 2011, 8:00 AM, Veterans Park, Ogunquit ME


The 4th annual Run for the Fallen Maine will be on August 21.  This is an opportunity to thank and honor the Servicemen and women from Maine that gave their lives in defending our freedom since 9-11.  This is not a race.  It is a tribute run from Ogunquit Center to Monument Square in Portland (65K or 42 miles) honoring all 79 Maine Fallen Heroes.  The course will be supported with trolleys that allow runners to get off and on therefore run as much or as little as you want to.  This will be the most emotional and inspirational run you have ever taken part in.  The course is lined with makers at each km with a picture and bio of each soldier.  Family members of over 350 of these servicemen and women will be attending again this year and they will be lining the course, at the start, finish and lobster bake following the run.

America's Favorite LivingSocial Deals

America's Favorite LivingSocial Deals

Have you ever wondered if anyone actually purchased that LivingSocial deal for botox or pole dancing that you remember reading in bed while you were checking your emails before you got in the shower? They had 24 hours to make the choice and according to this week's release by Living Social of their 2nd Quarter report [April - June], it is certain that these deals were and are being scooped up by the thousands! I am a huge fan of a great deal as most of you already know and think that paying retail for anything, especially for food, fitness & entertainment is completely unnecessary.

I found the 2nd Quarter information quite interesting because it’s interesting to see what deals Americans’ are obsessed with, as well as the trends in the marketplace.
