Sometimes it's nice to just hang out with a bunch of your running friends.
What makes it even better is when you do it at an amazing race put on by one of your close friends and your favorite running store.
Run- n- Tri and The Man About Town put on the first annual Peace at Bellingrath 5k and fun run on Saturday. This race was put on flawlessly. I will definitely be running this race next year when it comes around. All of you local guys need to add it to your race schedule.
It's a beautiful run at Bellingrath Gardens in Theodore AL.
My great friend Ray, The Man About Town partnered with Run- n- Tri to raise money for Penelope House.
Lisa, with Run- n- Tri headed up the cheer squad at the finish line.
Had to show you guys the gorgeous handmade medals for the winners made by Rays dear friend Jenny. Oh and the little gem of crazy accomplishment underneath it is Rays marathon medal from the Disney marathon last weekend. Freaking amazing!
This sweet 7yr old won first in his age group.he ran the 5k in under 30 minutes. his little legs had to be going fast. I love it when parents get their kids out and active.
I wanted to show you guys the gorgeous medals made by Jenny. I love homemade medals,I feel like they mean so much more than the manufactured medals. Don't get me wrong I love all my race medals, but something about someone putting the time in to make them by hand just adds that special touch.
Even some of my Swiftwick Color Run ladies won in their age group.
After the race I came home and ran my 8 miles I had on the books for today. The great people over at Huma energy gels sent me some samples to try and I was so excited that I finally found a portable natural feel that I could stomach during a run. AND it didn't leave a nasty aftertaste. HOLLA!
Stay tuned tomorrow, I have a little giveaway for you guys from the fabulous guys over at Huma,Yay!
Also all my local peeps, I went over to Run- n- Tri later on Saturday and guess what I found? Yep, my beloved Swiftwick socks. They have a lot to choose from. Go by there and tell them I sent ya. You will love them.
