I am being provided with a race entry, however I already signed up for this race and all opinions are my own. #HairbandsAndHeadbands

As my running buddy and I started the year, we had a goal of running a dozen 5K races in 2015, approximately one a month. With the cold weather and busy schedules, we have yet to start that goal. However, we have already registered for 5, with more on our radar as we work them in this spring & summer.

THAT-80S-RUN-2015

The first 5K race on our schedule is That 80’s Run hosted by St. Charles Community College. We signed up for it back in January and I couldn’t be more excited about it quickly approaching. Not only am I eager to be participating in a 5K race again, but I also can’t wait for the fun 80’s theme!
