Leesburg 10k

The Leesburg 10k & 5k on October 4th was put on by Bishop’s Events and benefited the Wounded Warrior Project. Packet pick-up was easy and took place before the race. I got there a few minutes prior to the race start at 8am and still have plenty of time to get ready since it was a smaller-sized race. And man, it was a freezing morning! I was definitely underdressed for the start of the race with only a SparkleSkirt and a t-shirt! I was lucky, though, that I…

Dash for Dreams 10k

One of Bishop’s Events many races this summer was a trail run in Prince William Forest Park. There were two distances to choose from: a 5k and a 10k. I signed up for the 10k, even though I knew the course was a bit hilly. Dash for Dreams 10k I had previously raced this course during the Joining Hearts for Heidi 10k last year, where I ran it in 1:21:49. It is a pretty challenging course with some big hills that are almost impossible to run because…

Fort Hunt 10k

This past Sunday I trekked out to Fort Hunt Park in Alexandria, VA. It was in the 30s and still felt pretty cold. It was also the day of daylight savings, so I was extra tired from not getting as much sleep as I could. Regardless, with my Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon coming up this weekend, I needed to get out and run. This race was put on by the DC Road Runners, and like usual, was very well organized. These races are “low-key”,…

Disneyland 10k

2014 Disneyland 10k On Saturday morning my alarm went off at 4am. Luckily, we were staying at the Paradise Pier Hotel, so the start line was just a few minutes walk away. I had my outfit all laid out from the night before so I just had to put on my clothes and running gear and head out the door. My family decided to dress up as Winnie the Pooh and Friends. Sadly, we didn’t get a picture of all of us together until after the…
