End of Season 5k/10k and Harvest Picnic!

An abundance from the earth was shared at our Harvest Picnic.. many mother – daughter teams ran and walked the trails together… and it was simply an altogether lovely September day to share fitness, camaraderie, fun and food!

Thanks to our awesome sponsors and camper crafters… our campers went home with drawing prizes that included fresh produce boxes from FREGGIES, Mean Girls Massage, Communichi Acupunture, and Camper Tina Fogall’s Big Spoon Jam! xoxoxoxoxo

A beautiful run thru the arboretum

We had a gorgeous sunny day and great turnout of 30 campers, friends and family for our first 5k/10k event of our new series. The colors of the rhodies and azaleas were incredible.  And the heavy perfumed air surrounded us as we ran through the trails.

We had great feedback and are now busy planning for the next one already that will be held on June 16 – so mark your calendars and commit to your next goal.

Thanks to FREGGIES who provided wonderful organic fruit for the community potluck afterwards and to Mean Girls Massage and Communichi Acupunture  for providing door prize gift certificates!

Traversing the Trails at our Seward Park 5k/10k!

We had a 25 campers and friends turnout Saturday and clear weather for our end of the season 5k/10k on the beautiful trails of Seward Park.

Everyone got their sweat on… but special congrats to Jeni P, Laura S, Lynne G, and Sylvia G who all completed the 10k in just over an hour!  This was  incredibly impressive especially because the route was quite hilly with lots of obstacles like logs to jump over and tight turns. In fact we didn’t expect to see anyone back in under 35 minutes for the 5k but a good group made it at 30 minutes – for 10 minute miles even with the challenging terrain.

Afterward we enjoyed food and door prizes and we also collected $100 for Booty Camp Scholarships!

Thanks all for your support! Big Hugs!!

Why go to a sappy holiday movie when you can get your cry on at the finish line of the Girls on the Run 5k?!

This morning 155 girls from across the city ran a 5k around Seward Park… finishing their goal after 10 weeks of the fall Girls on the Run program.  This was my first time as part of the coaching crew at John Muir Elementary School and it was a great time playing and getting to know these girls, seeing their struggles and their brilliance.

If you want to be involved they will be looking for coaches (a 10 week commitment) and running buddies (2 day commitment) in the spring again.  Also.. this is a fantastic organization run by some pretty smart women and if not all of your holiday dollars have been spent on other worthy causes.. please donate.
