Last year we decided it would be fun to run a 5k and then jump into a very cold body of water. And you know what? We were correct! It was an absolute blast. So much so that we were able to talk/harass a couple of our closest friends into joining us this year. Our … Continue reading Polar Bear Dive 2.0
Funny story, we were having dinner with a group of our friends, chatting about running and how much we hate it. Somehow, as the evening progressed, we managed to convince our husbands, our friends, and their husbands to run the Craft Classic with us. Our powers of persuasion impress even ourselves (or maybe it was … Continue reading Our Husbands Got the Runs…
A few weeks ago we ran the Marysville Strawberry Fest 5k. Those of you who are CRAPT runners (crappy runners are people too) will totally relate to our motivation for running this race.

The volunteers were really nice, encouraging and plentiful. Also, Annie dressed up...which is obviously the best part. Granted, she refused to wear the leprechaun tutu Lydia brought for her, … Continue reading Irish I Didn’t Have to Run!
We thought it would fun, if not for our readers for ourselves, if we wrote about what caused us to start running in the first place. There are tons of reasons we run now. Our journey in getting there however, those first miserable, slow steps, is mildly pathetic and somewhat amusing. Once again, Lydia will … Continue reading In the Beginning…
The Polar Bear Dive (Resolution 5k) was a blast...and this is our first review. Hooray! In December, we decided to do a Polar Bear Plunge and decided on this one solely because the shirt is adorable. A word of advice, choosing your race based on the cuteness of their swag is the way to go! … Continue reading Polar Bear? More Like Polar Brrr
