Electric Run Fun Photos

The Electric Run came to Seattle (well, actually Puyallup) last night. This is my second time doing this fun run – so fun!  Who doesn’t want to run to music and neon lights?!  It’s not a timed event, it’s all about having a good time. You can run, skip, walk, dance – whatever floats your boat. Check it out… Last time…

Seattle Women of Wonder 5k/10k Walk/Run

The Women of Wonder 5k and 10k Walk/Run (and kids dash) at Green Lake was this last Sunday morning. What a gorgeous morning it was and I had no clue what we were in for with this event.  What a pleasant surprise!  There were about 3000 people there and many dressed up for the occasion……

CMY5K: Running in Color Craziness!

We had another color splash 5K this weekend in Seattle at Magnuson Park. Here we are before the race, dressed in white and ready for color! Note: If you decide to do one of these in your area, put argan oil in your hair so that the color washes out easier, and use a disposable camera for pictures. Back…

Seattle Torchlight Run 2012

This is one of my favorite fun runs! If you are new to running, do this 5K or 8K next year.  You’ll see below, I spent more time sightseeing and people watching than actually running.  I just considered it interval training. Runners dress in crazy pirate costumes and clever outfits for a night of silliness.  I’m so glad I got to…
