Santa Monica Classic 5K

This morning, to end our season, 
I ran the Santa Monica Classic 5K race
along with my team of lovely young ladies from Girls on the Run.
The weather was perfect, the scenery was pretty
and the start of the race was one insane, gigantic, overcrowded mess. 
Our group didn't make it to the starting line until 
two minutes after the race began.
(Which is the excuse I'm going with regarding why my time wasn't so hot...
we'll ignore the fact that I've been slacking off with my running lately).
All of the girls ran with their parents as "running buddies" and
we cheered them on throughout the race and at the finish line.
And then I made a beeline to The Coffee Bean,
because I woke up at 5 AM for this race and that was too darn early.


  1. Looks like you had a good time! I love your Nike shoes and blue sun glasses.

  2. That's the thing about LA, there's traffic (even foot traffic) EVERYWHERE! I miss it. Kind of.

  3. Get it, girl! So awesome that you ran it no matter what your time was!

  4. I had my 5K race with my girls on the run team this morning too! Isn't it so cool to see them cross the finish line?? So cool that there are teams all over doing it today!

  5. You are the most stylish runner ever!

    I somehow let my lil sister convince me to do a Color Me Rad race next weekend... and apparently, you get paint thrown on you while you run. Who in their right mind would agree to this?! LOL

  6. so i must be the last to know about girls on the run. heard lots about it this weekend from friends. such a great thing. nice work on the 5k!!

  7. Looks like it was a great morning. I love the blue sunnies.


  8. how cute do u look in your 5K outfit, love your sunglasses :) congrats!!

  9. that's so awesome!! what a great example you are to this young ladies. I agree with you getting up at 5am for anything is way too early. :) glad there was a Coffee Bean nearby for you. :) hope you're having a FANTAstic Day!

  10. Congrats! From someone who who struggles with a mile, I am jealous! Currently trying to work my way up and hopefully be running some 5k's in my future as well! and love those Nikes!


  11. I love to run, good job on your 5k! I should really sign up for one soon.
