We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance. Romans 5:3

Let us run with endurance the race God has set before us. Hebrews 12:1

After taking off most of last year to care for my Mother, ( only entered 3 runs), I decided to find at least double that to sign up for, and hopefully there will not be any problems to prevent me from attending.
Sooo, I've signed up for a Night time run in Akron in May so far. ( I've never run at night, and I loooove glow sticks , so why not eh? ;-D)

I'm looking for more local ones for March or April.

My goal is to join a run every other month. Feb I am signed up for Truffle Shuffle. Then April I am signed up for the Color Run, and then The Dirty Dash. I will add more in there as we get closer, but these 3 are a must for me!

I could have missed the pain, but I'd have had to miss The Dance

I had done 5 so far. I did the World Best 10K in Puerto Rico in February, Run for Fuel in April, Color Me Rad in May or June, True Colors in June and the Hartford Marathon 5k a few weeks ago. I am doing the Freedom Run next Sunday and I may 2 more before Christmas. They are all 5Ks except for the 10K in PR.

I'm doing the Howl and Scream Scram in Richland, WA, on October 19th. I volunteered there several years ago. It'll be my first 5K, and I figure I'll walk half of it.

Costumes are encouraged; I plan to wear a Seattle Seahawks uniform, minus the helmet. And, since I will probably be riding my bike to the staging area, minus the pads, too!

I've posted a bunch of upcoming running events in the Tri-Cities over on the Spark Washington Team page. If you're interested, please go check it out.

Love God. Love your neighbor. Change the world. It really is that simple.

Just ran the Color Run, 5k on sat. Fun, messy colored smoke , music everywhere along the route. They started the pre run warmup with Zumba. Fun to watch about 500 people doing it all together in front of the stage.
