Kansas City Groundhog Run 2014

When I woke up yesterday morning I was thinking that the Groundhog run may be my new favorite race.  

It started at 10 - yay for sleeping in and having plenty of time to download some tunes,

make some breakfast (blueberry, banana, walnut oatmeal),

and hang out with the fam.

It also took place in temperature controlled caves, which meant I was able to test out the running skirt that Santa brought me.

Then, I started the race and realized how hard 10ks are.  The distance is just short enough that you can push yourself the entire race.  

Before starting I saw a girl with a shirt on that read, “To give less than your best is to sacrifice the gift."

I had big plans to “just run” the race, but once I read that I felt like I needed to run fast.  So, I did, at least for me.

I beat my 10K PR from this race two years ago (<—throwback post!) by a few seconds (unofficially).  Needless to say, my legs are super sore today.  

I arrived hone to a hungry family, so we went out to Mexican for lunch.  The rest of the day was pretty productive - grocery shopping, cleaning my car (inside and out!), making dinner, and playing outside with  my love.

I feel like some weekends come and go with nothing to show for them, but I think we squeezed as much out of this weekend as we could.

Cheers to that!  


  1. Way to go on your PR! :)

    Your post reminded me of how badly I need to clean out my car. It's one of the worst chores (in my opinion) but getting into a clean car is the best!

    Have a great week!

  2. Way to go on the race! Sounds like a fun one. I can't imagine running outdoors right now! Glad you could be in where it was warmer.


  3. Fantastic time on your race and super cute running outfit!

  4. Woohoo! I love it that you share your life with us. Thank you.

  5. Awesome job on the PR. I love a clean car, but hate cleaning it!
