Spirits 5k

Saturday afternoon we headed off to Alexandria for our first race of the year. It was the Spirits 5k. It was held at a local restaurant and to be honest it was one of the best organized ones we have ever participated in. Not only was the course awesome but the post race refreshments were amazing. Now for some races you get a ticket for one adult beverage, oh no not this one, you had free reign of a beer trailer! Haha, Kyle was a happy guy. There was beer, jambalaya, fried cinnamon rolls and king cake.

This was our first race since December and it felt great, Kyle did awesome and placed 2nd in his age group.




In honor of our first race of the year I registered for 2 more. I'm running a half this weekend and a 5k next weekend. Can't wait!

I hope you all had a great weekend.

  9. Good luck on the half this weekend! I'd give ANYTHING to be running outside right about now, but nope, 13 inches of snow. UGH.

  13. I've only ran a 5k once but having full access to the beer trailer might, just might, convince me to run a second one haha

  18. I was talking to J last night and I mentioned that maybe next year if I'm healthy enough I'd like to give running a try. He seemed to like that idea. You inspire me.
