Now that I’ve gotten over my running slump and finished my first post-baby 5k, I’m excited to do a few more races through the end of this year!
First up is the Color Me Rad 5k in Des Moines! It’s the first weekend in October and Jeff will be running it with me. We did a Color Me Rad here in Omaha last summer and had a blast. I really hope they have the same t-shirts as last year because we both love how soft ours are and wear them ALL. THE. TIME. :)
Next I’ll be doing Omaha’s Great Pumpkin Run on October 27th. Participants are encouraged to dress in costume for the chance to win a prize! It should be a really good time for runners of all ages and abilities! If you’re interested in participating, use the code “BOO” at checkout to get 40% off!
Last for the year, I’m all signed up for Omaha’s Ugly Sweater Run! It’s December 15, which is way later than I’ve ever ran outside in Nebraska. The whole event gets in the Christmas spirit with holiday music, inflatables, and photo booths. There’s even hot chocolate waiting for you at the finish! The event benefits Toys for Tots which makes the whole thing even sweeter! It should be a blast – I’ll need to raid my mom’s closet for a Christmas sweater (although she claims she no longer has any of those fabulous 80’s tops).
Do you have any races I should add to my schedule?! Also, I’m in the market for a jogging stroller so I can take Eleanor out with me next spring. Does anybody have a recommendation? I’m not looking to spend a ton, but I want to make sure I get one that’s good enough that I’ll actually use it :)
