Columbus Marathon (1/2) & Expo Recap

Sweet, sweet nectar...

What a whirlwind weekend!  Saying anything else would be a complete lie.  And since Nikki has been bugging me about getting a recap up, here it goes!

I drove down Friday morning to Columbus to work the expo for the Glass City Marathon, which is one of the premier races of the Toledo Road Runners.  My family has been TRRC members since January of 2016, so I was happy to be able to rep the event that started all my running journey.

Viking Dash 15K Trail Run Recap


Saturday at 11am, Nikki and I ventured out to Oak Openings to run the Viking Dash 5K (Nikki) and 15K (me) trail run.  There was also a half marathon options, but with Columbus next Sunday, we both decided it wasn’t a great idea to push our luck.  Unfortunately, my luck ran out in a different way but we will get to that!

Scrumpy Skedaddle 5K/10K Recap


The last race in the Thirsty 3 series was the Scrumpy Skedaddle 5K/10K (Cider Slam) up in Flushing, MI.  Nikki and I headed up a day early and stopped in to check out Old Nation Brewing Company to carb up before the race 😉

Why can’t we be friends?
