Prairie Lights 5K Walk!

On November 18th, a friend of mine and I went to walk the Sneak-A-Peek 5K at the Prairie Lights Display in Grand Prairie, TX! 


It's a drive through park that has 4 million lights!

Me and my friend Becky! (Who is also a runner!) 


Us with our kiddos ready to go! :)


The cute little ladies! :)


Sophie all decked out in her Christmas PJ's! :)
(That hat stayed on for about 15 seconds after this shot! HaHa)

When we got there, it was really dark and we were wondering why the lights weren't lit up.
When we headed up to the start we saw there was a stage and the announcer had a huge box with a huge switch on it! They announced that the race would sart soon, so they were going to flip the switch and turn all the lights on!

You can see the lights coming on in the background!

We headed off and through all of the lights! Sophie LOVED it! She kept looking and pointing and saying ooohhhhhhh! 
Side Note: This Christmas is going to be SO much fun with her!!! :)

This was my favorite part to go through! 
It's a long tunnel of lights that were flashing and racing! It was so neat!


Pictures obviously don't do it justice!


At the turnaround point they had this fire truck!
It reminded me of my late cousin who used to ride the firetruck dressed as Santa!
Good memories of my cousin who has been gone for 4 years now...Can't believe it's been that long...


Such a pretty fire truck!


My friends daughter in front of one of the many giant lights! :)

I wish I had known about this sooner because they encouraged you to deck out your strollers and wagons! I'm hoping this will be a tradition from now on and I will be more prepared next time! You better believe I will have battery pack lights all over my jogging stroller! :) They also had a timed run option the day before, but we had plans. I think I enjoyed the walk better anyway! I was able to enjoy the company and the lights! :) I also received a very cute long sleeve red shirt for signing up! I will be wearing it this Christmas season, because it is actually cute! :)

Do you have any drive through light displays in your area?
You might want to check and see if they do something awesome like this!
If not, you should suggest it! :)

WooHoo! 
Now, as I have promised, I have a pair of Compression socks OR sleeves to giveaway from PRO Compression!

This is what PRO Compression has to say about how they work:
"PRO Compression socks are designed specifically to deliver both maximum comfort and speedy recovery times. The science is complex, but benefits such as improved blood flow, stability and comfort are universally understood.  The moment you put these socks on your feet and incorporate them into your game, you will feel and understand the difference."
I have 4 pairs of PRO Compression Marathon socks and I LOVE them! They have been wonderful for recovery after my last two halfs and after my long training runs!
I didn't own any after my first half, and it took me almost 2 weeks until I could …

Big News!

One of the reasons I haven't been blogging much is because we just bought our very first house!!! Isn't it beautiful!
We don't move in until next week, but buying a house has taken a lot of time! I've been packing our apartment up a little at a time, but we still have A LOT to do!
It's hard to move with a toddler, because you don't want to shake their world up too much. They need their usual toys and to be able to find their favorite shoes amongst the boxes. Taking it slow and moving a little at a time just seemed like the best option.
We are going from a 2 bedroom apartment to a 4 bedroom home!  With a backyard! Down the street from a park! We are going to have so much space!  Being able to go outside in the back and down the street to the park is a huge deal for me!  Sophie and I LOVE being outside! I am so excited! I just can't even describe it! lol :)
And that's not all of the big news!
I also got a job!
It is an office job, where I will be doing t…

Some of my Favorite Things!

I just wanted to share some of my favorite Running gear right now! :)
I'll start with the one thing that everyone knows I already love...
My BOBRevolution SE!
I've been using it for a a few weeks now and I'm still in Love! I'm not sure how I've lived without it these past 15 months! You can read my BOB "review" here! :)

My newest favorite thing are my hotpink Locklaces!

They are elastic shoelaces that  tighten by a "lock". They make it easy for me to just slip my shoe on and go! They are also wonderful because I have had issues with my shoelaces being too tight on the top of my foot and these fix that problem! No more pain! I wish I had known about these forever ago! I will have them on all of my future running shoes!
I love their moto!
Now onto something that I think every single person who is active outside should own. Pepper Spray.
In this case the Personal Saver and the Wrist Saver.
This i the Personal Saver I carry it on my keychain everyw…
