Ainsley's Angels Sunset 5k

Saturday night we headed off to Lake Charles for the Ainsley's Angels Sunset 5k. The great thing about races in Lake Charles is that most are run along the same course. Being able to run along the river is always nice regardless of how hot it is.

If you have never heard of Ainsley's Angels definitely go check out their website they are an amazing organization. It was started by a military family for their daughter who has a terminal illness.



It was incredibly hot out even at 7:30 when the race started but it was worth it to participate in such a great cause. We kept our paces slow and steady and just enjoyed the company. 

The finish line festivities were pretty awesome! We were treated to frozen yogurt, jambalaya, gumbo, and any other delicious food you could think of. However all I could think of was Starbucks and black iced tea lol. 

We will definitely participate in this one next year.




I don't have another race scheduled until mid-September but we will see if something pops up. :) 

Hope you all had a great weekend!

  9. The best races are the ones that serve a good cause. My company has a soccer / volleyball tournament each year against one of the banks we work with, and a few years ago, they started to use the funds that used to go towards gifts for the participants to make donations towards a good cause. It's even more fun to participate now :-)
