When I chose The Great Scorpion Trail Run as my first official trail race, I picked a real doozy!! However, after completing the 25k, I feel properly indoctrinated into the subculture of trail runners. This race really had a lot to offer … read on for all the details and to see the pics I snagged along the way!
I was *beyond* excited for my triumphant #Return2Racing at the Mississippi Gulf Coast Marathon, especially after such a lengthy COVID-induced racing hiatus! I was so excited, in fact, that I PR’d both events.Quarantine does a runner good, I suppose. 😉
The Run Run Rudolph 5k/10k race looked a little different this year than in years past but there’s just nothing like a finish line, even in 2020!
The Trick or Treat Trot 5k was ALL treats and NO tricks! That morning, I actually ran the NYC Marathon (virtually) but I JUST HAD TO ATTEND!! I love dressing up in costume, and this year we had a super special reason to do so.
I have to admit … this event was a pleasant surprise! The city of Baton Rouge is a hidden gem and the event itself is a unique running festival that celebrates passion for the sport of running combined with Louisiana culture. #LouisianaMarathon #GeauxRunLA #HalfCrazy #BeachToBayouChallenge
RISE & SHINE! This “Coastal Running Festival” combines two of my favorite things: running and scenic views along the beautiful Mississippi Gulf Coast. #RunShine #SoakUpTheRun
Mississippi Track Club gave me the goal and direction I needed to gain the positive reinforcement required to solidify my love of the beautiful, beautiful sport of RUNNING!
You had me at race HOODIE and SNOWGLOBE finisher medal!! Bodies Race Company – Jackson once again delivers on their promise for cool swag and a fun holiday-themed event.
“Run run Rudolph, Santa’s got to make it to town!” In this case, Santa *did* make it to the lovely town of Brookhaven just in time to collect “Toys for Tots” and see runners off at the “Run Run Rudolph 5k, 10k, and 1-Mile Kids Run.”
Canton, Mississippi (known as “The City of Lights”) hosts this merry and bright 5k that runs alongside the historic Canton Courthouse Square. Bonus: The proceeds benefitted Canton Academy.
