Road Shark

Hi friends! First of all, a huge HUGE thank you to everyone for the sweet birthday wishes! Between the blog, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Periscope, texts, and calls, this girl feels loved. I may have been a little misty eyed when the clock went from 12:50 to 12:51, ushering in my 30’s, but I’m ok now. Smile

Ok, so several of you mentioned that you hated to miss the Gone for a RUN virtual race that was held over the 4th of July. Well, you are in luck, because there is another one, a 5 miler this time!

The Road Shark Run Virtual 5 Mile Race is taking place between July 31st and August 2nd.


(women’s version)

I find sharks quite fascinating, and since shark week just ending, and so many beach-goers this summer, I am loving this theme!

Here is a little more info on the race features:

  • Virtual race will be held July 31st – August 2nd
  • Virtual race packet includes race shirt (either a Women’s Everyday Tee or a Men’s Lifestyle Tee), gorgeous finisher medal, real race bib (no downloads!) and a car magnet

LOVE the medal, and move the car magnet! (There are also some other add on’s you can choose to purchase at the time of registration, just check out the event page for details.)


(men’s version)

I will be running the roads for this race, and I hope you will consider joining in! There aren’t many local races around here in the summer, so this is a fun way to still earn some bling! Don’t forget to use code SHARKHEATHER for free shipping!

QOTD: Have you done any racing this summer?

Disclosure: I received a free race registration for this virtual run


NOLA Weekend

We had an amazing weekend in New Orleans running the Rock ‘n Roll New Orleans half marathon! A fun race, great friends, and could not have asked for better weather. I will have full recaps on the blog later this week, but I just wanted to share a couple of pictures for now. I was so tired when we got home last night the last thing on my mind was writing a lengthy race or weekend recap! Soon though.

Have a great Monday! Today I take Emma Kate for her 4 month shots and checkup. I can’t wait to see how much she has grown (but I’m not too excited about the shots!)

QOTD: What has been your favorite destination race or “racecation”?
