Jazz in the Woods

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.

About a year or so ago our friend, Graham, started up his own company with a few of his friends call Life =.  They currently sell an energy pill but they will quickly be expanding to multivitamins and fish oil.  It's a great company that gives back by donating an equal amount of children’s multivitamins to an undernourished child through a partnership with Vietnam Angels.  Continue reading about their company here.  And check out their awesome website http://www.life-equals.com/.

 

It just so happened that Life = was a sponser of this race and if Ryan & I signed up to be a part of their team we would get a free shirt.  Score!!  And of course we wanted to support our friend as well. :)

I was by no means asked to promote their company but just wanted to spread the word about the amazing things they are doing.
