We arrived in Tulsa for the Williams Route 66 weekend and we were so excited!!! We checked into the ALoft Hotel downtown, which not only was one of the host hotels but it was also on the route! Nice and easy!
Well, we are off on another adventure, just me, Laurie and the open road!
To celebrate Laurie’s birthday, I planned a Wild Women Weekend Road Trip! Our first stop is St. Louis, Missouri to complete the She Power 5K.
What an unexpected fun day!
John and I purchased tickets to this mud event for our nephews birthday way back in April. Unfortunately, he had to work that day, so I got to do this one with John instead.
In 2014 a man shot five officers from the RCMP, killing three and severely injuring two others. Since that horrible tragedy, the families of the three fallen officers organized this 5K event in their honor and memory.
Each year, this event is held on Father’s day to honor these officers, as not only protectors of their community but to honor them as the amazing fathers that they all were.
Silly Boys … Mud is for Girls!
A couple girls from work decided it might be nice to do something fun outside of the office. Why not a Mud Run, geared specifically for women?!
Perfect! Count me in!
The location was perfect for an event like this…Binbrook Conservation Area, in Hamilton. This made for a beautiful course and an even better place to clean off at the end. 🙂
Same day kit pick up is always a nice touch. The kit included a draw string bag (Pink of course), a headband, a bracelet and of course each of us received our medal once we crossed the finish line!
Bling – Bling!
This event was fun from start to finish. We completed all challenges and didn’t give up, even when the task seemed impossible.
Some of the challenges requiring upper body strength were tough but we did it!
One of the hardest parts was just trying not to slip and fall in the mud!
We had a blast!
Never doubt what a little mud and a whole lot of women can accomplish!
For the second time in our running career, John and I tackled the Spring Run-Off 5K
This is a beautiful course in High Park, with lots of hills and beautiful scenery.
We completed this race back in 2014, so we were excited to be tackling it again.
Onto more St. Patty’s Day shenanigans!!
We arrived in the cute little town of Plymouth, MI for our second event of the weekend!
The race was to take place at Kellogg Park, which caught us off guard at first, because we were expecting a big park. Continue reading “Shamrock Race – 1 Mile + 5K”
Another amazing day in the snow!!
I absolutely LOVE this event!!
When adults can be big kids and play in the snow, you know this is an event for you!
What an awesome day spent with Family and Friends!
This marks my brother in law’s very first 5K event!
We had a superhero theme and ran with it. I love dressing up for runs!!
I have never felt more proud to be Canadian!!
Last weekend in our beautiful capital city, I completed the “Canadian Army Commanders Challenge”, in honor of my late Grandfather, Vaughn Lawrence, who served in WW2.
