Upcoming Races

I am excited for all the upcoming runs that we have registered for! It's hard to find longer distance races in this area especially during the hotter months but that's okay. Here is what we have coming up:

Armadillo Stampede 5k. It is a local race that is sponsored by AUSA. I'm excited to participate in an event that directly supports the Army. 

Contraband 5 Miler. This is ran in conjunction with the Contraband Days festival which is a pirate festival, how awesome is that?! I am super excited to run this one. 

Run for Scott 5k. This race benefits a local Leesville man that is battling bladder cancer. Any event that benefits cancer I am all about supporting!

wear blue: run to remember. I am pledging 8.2 miles this Memorial Day in honor of CPT. Ed Chaffin that was killed last year. He worked with Kyle in the 82nd and he was a really nice guy. 

4 Miler on the 4th. What a great way to spend 4th of July! It's a good excuse to wear my 'Merica tank top haha.


I can't wait to see what other races pop up over the next few months. The last few years I was so competitive when it came to how many races I did but now I just want to have fun and enjoy every experience.


Happy Thursday Everyone!
