Over the past several weeks Ryan & I have started to get back into running again. I took a long break to get my shin splints under control. We are still using the Walk/Run plan but just not on a treadmill this time. Besides, the weather is way too nice to not be outside! As with anything I decide to do, I jump in with both feet. So just after running again for about two weeks I signed us up for a 5k. I actually wasn't even thinking about signing up for any races for awhile but a great one popped up on my radar.
Since moving back to Kansas City I've heard about a lot of fun runs that go on throughout the year, and I definitely wanted to sign up for them but it just wasn't the right timing. Recently, I kept hearing about something called Jazz in the Woods. It's an event that brings in local jazz artists to perform a couple of nights and a fun thing to bring the whole family to. They also have a run to raise money for local charities. I was interested since it was so close to my house but still debating, until our good friend Graham came into the picture.

Our race team. Unfortunately, the event got rained out. Such a bummer, but we still had fun taking pictures in their sweet photo both. Check out more photo's here.
I was by no means asked to promote their company but just wanted to spread the word about the amazing things they are doing.
