Let’s Play & Good Sports St. Louis Pick-Pack-Play Update

I attended a local Pick-Pack-Play event this year as a Let’s Play Ambassador. Let’s Play is an initiative by Dr Pepper Snapple Group that provides kids and families with the tools, places and inspiration to make active play a daily priority by building and improving playgrounds and donating sports equipment to groups in need. Even though I am being compensated for my ambassadorship, I fully believe in the initiative. All opinions are my own.

Through Let’s Play, Dr Pepper Snapple Group partners with two non-profit organizations: KaBOOM! to build playgrounds and Good Sports, which provides grants for sports equipment to help make active play possible. Earlier this year, local St. Louis organizations in need of sports equipment had the chance to apply for one of these Good Sports equipment grants.

St. Louis Trike Riot Saturday 8/20/16 in Chesterfield

**PLEASE NOTE: Due to a logistical issue with the truck bringing the trikes, they postponed the Trike Riot until next Sunday, August 28th.

5K events are a fun way to get out, exercise and get a nice run in. There are various types of 5K that are more than just running those 3.10 miles. Some have obstacles, color throws or dirt & mud. But have you heard of the Trike Riot?

What is the Trike Riot, you say? It’s a family friendly race that takes 5K events to another level and it’s coming to the St. Louis area this weekend! 

Getting Back into Running with True Runner

This post is sponsored by Vocalpoint and True Runner. All opinions are my own. 

When something is no longer routine, no matter what the reason, it can seem intimidating to get back into it. That thing that was once easy and felt second nature, can begin to feel like unknown territory. That is exactly what happened to me with running.

Family Day at Eckert’s – Strawberry Picking & More

I’m sharing our family day-trip to Eckert’s as part of a sponsored campaign. All opinions are 100% my own, as we have always enjoyed trips to Eckert’s. 

Family time is essential. I fill each weekend with fun activities, creating quality time with the kids. Having three young boys, I am often challenged to find new & exciting events that will hold their attention easily. However, no matter what we do, what’s important is spending time together and making memories.
