CASA Superhero 5K and Other Weekend Happenings {Running, Lifestyle}

How is everyone doing on this chilly Sunday afternoon? We are trying to soak up every last precious drop of the weekend at my house. While it has been a rainy and cold weekend- it has been a great one.

Friday night the hubs and I ventured out on a surprise date night to see the new Thor movie. It was nice to be little on free for an evening. We got to chat, snack on movie popcorn, and drink a bucket of diet soda. Plus the movie was rad. The only downside was getting to bed mega late knowing what a busy Saturday we had ahead.

Saturday morning we headed out to a local race put on by CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates)- the CASA Superhero 5k. I loved donating my race fees to a good cause. I was also really excited that this was a stroller friendly 5k. Dressing up was encouraged so Aiden and I went the Stars Wars hero route- Yoda and Leia respectively.


Unfortunately, it was misty and cold so most of Aiden’s costume was covered by a warm cozy jacket. His hat was a hit though!


The race is very family friendly so there were lots of booths to visit for freebies. There were also some foodtrucks on hand, a hero photo booth, and some bouncy slides for the little.

The rain really picked up while we were out on the course so we pretty much walked the entire way to avoid slipping on the slick leaves. One mom commented the hardest part of the race was the turn around since so many mamas had their front wheels locked on their strollers. I had to agree. This is a fun, flat, and pretty easy trail that we have walked/run 100 times. Despite the ran we had a great time.

After the race we met back up with the hubs and met a couple of pals downtown for mimosas and brunch. It was so nice to get cozy and have a nice meal with friends.


After brunch I branched off with my friend Jamie to scope out the festival of handmade gifts downtown.  SO good. We scored some incredibly unique pieces and had a great time walking around.


I LOVE a Saturday well spent. What are YOU up to this weekend?
