An iBelieve Christmas

Some memories from spending the holidays in Ohio:

My sister Rachel and her boyfriend Steve race direct the I Believe 5k/10k and give all the proceeds to the Boys & Girls Club. Below are pictures of the 1 mile kids race and then me after finishing the 10k. I loved the mud!
Coolest Start/Finish sign ever!

Had to retire my Christmas socks after the race.

Sage and I had a bit of a rock star running schedule. We both won the I Believe 10k on Saturday, the day after we ran 16 miles, Monday we ran 3 hours in the beautiful Mohican State Park with Rachel and Pacer.....

Then on Tuesday we won the Frosty 5 in 15 degree weather followed by a trail run. It was a blast! However  it really made racing 5 miles on the road hurt!

I gave someone a good Christmas present by leaving my Garmin watch there.

After the Frosty 5 we headed to my mom's house for my family's annual Christmas Eve Party.

My wonderful friends, some who've I've known since elementary school.
To work off some of all the food we ate Rachel, Sage, some of my Ohio running friends and I ran the annual Waterfall Run in Cuyahoga Valley National Park. 3 waterfalls in 17 miles.
Rachel, Me, and our friend Lee running Pine Lane on our way to the first waterfall.

I also fulfilled my duty as an aunt by spoiling my niece, Pacer, with tons of play time and belly rubs!

It's always a little sad to say goodbye.... (Fortunately for Pacer she has my sock to remember me by.)

Run Wild, Live Happy,
