Jog’r Egg Nog’r, Jingle Bell Run and Wknd Recap.

Hope you had a beautiful weekend! I am very much looking forward to this short work week going into Christmas and New Years. This morning I taught my spin class…lots of fun at the crack of dawn. It was a good turnout despite the upcoming holiday!

Let’s backtrack to the weekend! It was a good one for sure. Starting things off with Saturday morning…the Jog’r Egg Nog’r 15K! Those of you who have been reading for a while know that this is one of my favorite races of the year. I’ve been running this one for 4 years straight! I met some new peeps and had a little photoshoot at the start line.

The course was somewhat different this year and we ran all along White Rock Lake which I absolutely loved. I kept a great pace out there and just tried to keep telling myself to not back down. I finished a couple of minutes faster than last year…AND actually won first place in my age group!! I usually perform well every year at this run but not once have I actually placed FIRST in the 15K! I was thrilled. BTW Lindsay Hazard beat me last year. Sweet victory.

After the run I kicked it with the fam was totally lazy. It felt amazing to not go out on Saturday night and just spend time with my family.

Yep…that was me.

Sunday night was the Jingle Bell Run 5K! I had a few friends make it out and we all dressed up and got festive with it.

The race started about 5 minutes early which I was not expecting! I was trying to make my way up to the front then the gun went off. Since this is a family friendly race there were a LOT of dogs, walkers and kids so I spent about the first half mile trying to dodge everyone. I felt like it kind of slowed me down and I fought to catch up but I was still okay with my time. 7th place in my age group out of 52 girls! Not half bad.

Afterwards we partied all night long! I really enjoyed kicking it with the gang.

Have a great week!

  1. CONGRATS, girl!!! I am sooooo pumped for you!!! I’m so proud of you, kickin’ butt and takin’ names! 😀 😀 😀 You killed it! It looks like you guys had a very fun time after the 5K! Celebrating after racing is the best!! You and your friends look so festive 🙂 This post put me right into the holiday spirit! Merry Christmas! ❤

  2. Congrats on the win! Yay for picking up extra classes, I always sub when I can. I was surprised there were almost none on our swap board this week and next. I think it’s because our gym just cancelled a lot of them.
