GOTR 5K Celebration

Girls on the Run Celebration 5K 

Ottawa and Allegan County had their Girls on the Run Celebration 5k on June 3&4 this year. I had the privilege of getting both groups warmed up and GROOVING to "The Walker" by Fitz & the Tantrums.  It was so much fun to get people moving and see all the smiles and dancing pre-race. 

Some how every year it seems that the 5k is on the hottest day of the start of summer and this year was no exception. It was toasty warm out !!! The Race this year took place at Coopersville High School and ran around the school campus. I am so PROUD of how my entire did. They ROCKED their 5k, they stayed positive and ran hard.

Bayshore Recap

A little late but oh well.... Memorial Day weekend was the they Bayshore Marathon, 1/2 Marathon and 10K. This year My Sister, Travis, and Myself all did the 1/2 and my Dad did the 10K. It was a great morning for running the temp was very comfortable maybe a little warm as you were finishing up but GREAT overall.  

I Love this course... well maybe not the Hill at the start of the 1/2 but over all I Love this course if runs along the bay all the way back into town for the finish. It is hard to not stop and take scenery pictures or selfies along the course b/c it is so pretty. 

As far as 1/2 Marathons.. Well I didn't hit my goal of going sub 1:40 but I Felt Great !!! I conserved at the beginning and was able to drop my pace for the last few miles and finish with a 1:42:47 . 

Seaway Run 2017-Check it out !!!

Good Morning, 

Featured Race. This is another NEW one. I have never done this race but I LOVE that is runs along the lake shore. I feel like if you live in West MI in the Summer you might as well take advantage of being so close to the lake and enjoy the views.  Still trying to decide which event I want to sign up for the 15k or the 1/2 Marathon both sound AWESOME !!!

Good Read and Medal Monday

Good Read

I have been reading Tina Muir's Blog for a while now. I found her on Instagram originally and then started following her running carer via her blog and also facebook. I love her down to earth approach and REALNESS. You can find the link to her latest post below.
"I remind people time and time again that those moments we are being tested, those moments where you are about to give up, to say, “screw this”, are the moments that define your future."
