Five Things Friday - 10.14

It's another race weekend! I have to tell you, this year has been a little crazy with all the travel, but I'm having a BLAST! Each time I go to a race weekend I don't think anything can top it, and then it does! It's not just the race, but the people and the experiences. 

This weekend we are heading to St. Louis! I have never been there before, so I am looking forward to so much! For this weeks Five Things Friday, I decided to share the five things I'm really excited for this weekend.

1. We Run Social Meet Up!

Yes folks, another one! This time Katie and I will be hosting the WRS meet up before the 5k! Look for the banner, it's already packed! I cannot wait to see you all there!

2. Blues vs Rangers.

We had noticed that it was opened weekend for hockey while we were in St. Louis, so why not! Hubs got tickets super cheap for the game so we are going on Saturday night. A new arena is always fun to see, and two teams that I normally don't get to see!

3. The Westin.

So, we aren't the type of people that have to stay at a specific hotel. Normally, we got on Priceline and get the best deals. Well, this time Priceline gave us The Westin! I have never stayed at a Westin before and I am super excited to see what everyone has been raving about. Plus it's right next to Busch Stadium which is really cool!

4. The City.


There is so much to do in St. Louis and I had no idea! We are lucky to be getting in to town really early on Friday and can explore a bunch. I think we might check out the zoo and the Anheuser-Busch Brewery.

5. The Extra Bling!!

This is my fifth Rock 'n' Roll race this year which means I can pick up my first heavy medal at the race! I'm actually jumping out of my skin about this! I feel all official getting to go to the heavy medal booth! I also get the Midwest Quest medal for running Chicago and St. Louis. Oh, and the remix medal for running the 5k and half! So let's back track. Medals for 5k, half marathon, remix, heavy medal and Midwest Quest. Yes folks, FIVE MEDALS!

I'll be posting all weekend on social media so make sure you follow along. It should be such a great weekend. I am so excited! I know there are tons of race this weekend, so get after it everyone! You have worked so hard and this is your victory lap!


  1. I was just in St. Louis for a wedding and loved exploring the little downtown!

  2. I'm thinking of adding St. Louis to my list for next year. I hope that you have a great time!

    1. You should definitely add St. Louis to your list next year!! So many fun things to do!

  3. Good luck! I hope you have a great weekend!
