air and get a great workout all at the same time. No matter what your fitness level,
you can do one of these classes. Here are the details for our Summer Session:

8:30 am
A 4686 66th St
Holland MI 49423

We call this "the toughest race you'll ever love" because it's a trail run that will take your breath-away, make your quads burn, push you to the limit, and yep, we are  sure you'll want to come back next year to do it again! You start on the road, travel up through a sandy, buggy forest trail that takes you down to the shores of Lake Michigan. Catch your breath,because to get back you run/walk/traverse a HUGE double bowl dune before going back through the trails to the road and ultimately the finish. The course is incredible, the cause is undeniably relevant and deserving, the volunteers are fabulous~ what else do you need to know?! Oh yes, the shirts are cool and once you've earned it, you'll definitely want to show it off! Join us on July 6 for a truly unique event.

Earlier this Spring at work I was asked if I was willing to be a part of a photo Shoot. Here are a couple of the pictures from the shoot. I am really Happy with both of them. 


So on Tuesday My Baby Sister Graduated From Holland Christian High School, I can believe that she is graduating. She has always been my little sister and poof she is all grown up. But I am so proud of here as she plans to go the GVSU this fall. 

In this Picture the two gentleman to the left of me are the little boys I used to babysit for all the time, they used to live behind our house, they were the most adorable little boys ever. They would come over all the time to play in the field, jump on the trampoline, play with the bunnies and kitties in the barn. I love that we got this picture. I just marks another chapter in life. 


So lets see I graduated high school in 2005 and college in 2009 has it really been 8 years since my high school graduation OMG!!!

Riverbank Run 2013

Fifth Third River Bank Run

I am not going to dwell on this too much but yesterday was very disappointing for me. I was all signed up for the 25k however was only able to hobble through the 10k, due to Some knee pain in my left knee that started about 2 weeks ago. I have lots of stretches and exercises that I will be working on Daily so that I can get back to running soon.

Tulip Time 5k

Here we go.... Tulip Time 5K 8:30 am. I was so much fun to run this race with so many great people. First off Travis ran this 5k which was awesome and then pretty much my whole Saturday morning running group was there running as well. It was Awesome and we couldn't have asked for better weather for the run. 

A little after Run breakfast treat at JP's With Travis. He Loves Cinnamon Rolls so a Cinnamon Roll and Vanilla Frangelico Coffee was and excellent treat. 

Then since were downtown anyways we thought that we would go for a walk and see the Tulips. They are perfect right now. 

World Largest Cinnamon Roll 

My Friend April Works for Bethany Christian Services, and as a fund raiser for post adoption care, they decided to try and go for a world record of largest cinnamon roll. So along with Second Floor bakery, Bethany Christian Services debuted the worlds largest cinnamon roll weighing in at ~609 lbs.

Spring Shopping

This Spring my sister Graduates from High School and I have been invited to many open houses because of XC. While my Mom and I were wandering downtown Holland we came across this super cute dress at JB&Me I tried it on and LOVED it. 

Oh I also may have stopped at MC Sports and they had buy one get one half off on there Nike Apparel so I got this super cute new Running outfit. 

Stella and Dot

The Stella & Dot Trunk Show is also Still going on ONLINE, So if you are looking for a Mothers day gift or Graduation Gift For some one, check out the great jewelry they have to offer. 

I hope that everyone had a chance to get out and enjoy this wonderful weather and that you are all having a great weekend.
