Colby 5k and CrossFit Challenge 2013

My brother's wedding in Owasso, Oklahoma. Researching, I came across this benefit run to raise money for Angelman Syndrome:

It's called the Colby 5k and CrossFit Challenge: https://www.facebook.com/Colby5kAndCrossFitChallenge  This race had something for everyone with a 1 mile dash, a 5k fun race, a CrossFit Challenge, and then a fire truck pulling contest! This would be the first race I've been in with anyone in my family. A couple of weeks before the race, my sister and mother agreed to attend this race. This race offered same day registration.
Saturday morning was cold and crisp outside. My sister and I met at my hotel room. We have this tradition of exchanging Christmas ornaments every year. After the exchange and thank yous, we met our mother in the lobby of the hotel to head over to Owasso.

 Using GPS we manage to find ourselves with 5 minutes to register for the 1 mile dash!

Due to my health issue, I was limited to walking and loved every moment! Lots of people came out to support this benefit. The company was fantastic and the fall season in Owasso is beautiful.
Thank you to the volunteers.
We had a great time. Love to come back again!


  1. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. I agree with any race there is the roller coaster of emotion. It looks like you are on the road to recovery and you'll be back running soon.

    1. Christina,
      Thank you and yes, I'm healing well. Can't wait to get out there and begin running!

  2. Thanks for visiting my blog. Your blog is so cute. I love it and what a great title. Hope your feeling better soon and you'll be running again before you know it.

    1. Flower, I loved the recap on the Women's Running Series. I'm on the mend and in about 4 weeks, I'll be able to run again! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
