Nike Summer Race Series 2017

Wednesday, August 16, 2017
76°F, 6:30pm, Edgewater Park

We did it again. Our social lives took over August and we could only manage to do a Wednesday evening race…which is actually awesome because it switches things up a bit and the timing of the Nike Summer Series offerings couldn’t be better! Continue reading Nike Summer Race Series 2017


11th Annual Wigs for Kids 5K Day at the Zoo

Saturday, July 22, 2017
74°F, 8:30am, Cleveland Metroparks Zoo

We’ve run at the zoo before, so we knew what to expect at the 11th Annual Wigs for Kids 5K Day at the Zoo. That didn’t make the anticipation of the big hill any better, especially with the struggle of the heat this summer. Luckily, it was a VERY rainy morning, with the rain only picking up as we ran and becoming torrential right after we finished. This helped keep the sweat at bay and the temperature refreshing instead of heavy and uncomfortable. Continue reading 11th Annual Wigs for Kids 5K Day at the Zoo

Saturday, March 25, 2017
~50°F, 10am, West Park Station

This year’s Lakewood Jig and Jog 5K started a lot like other races we’ve run. R didn’t pre-register. When K texted him late Friday night about the race, he wasn’t even prepared to run it! Continue reading 6th Annual Irish Jig & Jog 5K

Saturday, February 25, 2017
~44°F, 10am, Downtown (Galleria)

This year is a big year for the Chili Bowl. It’s the 30th year for them, but the fourth year for us. And in fact this race is always a big deal to us, because two very special things happened at this race.
