Keep On Moving

If you have followed my blog for any length of time you know that running and being active is a huge part of our lives. Most of our weekends involve some sort of race and this past weekend was no different. We are currently working towards a goal of completing 100 races. This weekend checked off #89 and #90 (for clarity, Kyle and I will both have run 100 races, some of these have been together and some separately but we will both reach the goal of 100 come November 11th). We both have a really hard time sitting still so being active is the best for us.

On Saturday, Kyle was participating in the Rugged Maniac 5k in Weston, MO. We were able to sleep in a bit as his heat didn't kick off until 11:45. It was being held at a ski resort and it was beautiful! I enjoy obstacle races but I decided to opt out of this one and watch from the sidelines with E. I knew I made the right choice when right after starting the participants went straight uphill haha. 

We got there early enough to where Kyle was able to switch to the 10:45 heat. He said he had a blast, which was evident by the giant smile on his face at the end. I was a little jealous of the water slide at the end but that's okay haha. :) 
Sunday we ran the Plaza 10k in Kansas City. It is the largest 10k in Kansas/Missouri and it did not disappoint. It is also the 1st race of the Heartland 30k series, we have 2 more to go. The course was gorgeous and it was fun running with 2k+ other people. I had no goal in mind but was thrilled when I PR'd this race by 90 seconds. 

I love just going out and running with my two favorite people! 
I always love when being active goes hand in hand with great events. On Monday, with it being September 11th, my workout group Stroller Strong Moms participated in the 9/11 Flag run/walk. It was hosted by Team RWB and it was designed to keep the American Flag moving from sun up to sun down. Every 30 minutes the flag was handed off to a different group and moved for 2 miles. It was an honor to walk/run with this amazing group of ladies/kiddos and keep the flag moving.
Here is to an another awesome day! Make it a good one!

  8. Wow that was a really neat way to commemorate 9/11. We are back to running mode now that the weather is cooperating. The boys are keeping me accountable. We run our 2nd 5K in October. I wonder if I could ever get to 100? :)
