Fitness Friday- Neon Splash Dash Dallas

As promised, our first Fitness Friday post!!  I realize its a little late but also as promised you will be getting the good, the bad and the ugly- and sometimes we run a little late here! Here we go….

So, fall has FINALLY hit the Great state of Texas and we were able to get some awesome weather last weekend. On Saturday, we woke up ready to run and even knowing we had a 5K scheduled that night we decided to go and do a short run at the park anyway. We just couldn’t pass up the great weather and it was just a quick 2 and half miles. Well, because the weather was so great and the park was so beautiful, we just kept going ( I blame this on that runner’s high everyone talks about) .We ran 4 miles- and we felt great!! Keep in mind the Mister and I had every only run about 3.5 miles at one time, in our entire lives!- This was a total fitness VICTORY!! And we did what any hungry person would do and  rewarded ourselves with pancakes and eggs(which from here on on out will be referred to as “refueling”, heehee). Then we took a morning nap. It wasn’t even noon, people. Running is legit, sooooo legit.

Saturday evening we were scheduled to run our first evening 5k, The Neon Splash Dash. The Neon Splash Dash is a wild night time 5k. You run (or dance!) through different Glow Zones, where you get sprayed with a different color of our U.V. glow water. The glow effect is AMAZING! There is also music blasted at each glow zone to keep the energy going! At the finish line there is a a HUGE after party filled with music and tons of runners sprayed with glow water- all dancing the night away! It was a blast!! Here’s a video of what running the  NEON Splash Dash was like. It was really so much fun!!!! And one of the best parts was getting to run it with my family. My sister did her very first 5k at this event and had some friends join her too. I love that my family is enjoying fitness and taking literal steps to make it a part of their lives too!!

On Sunday, we joined our local running group for one of our weekly runs to wrap up an awesome weekend. The rest of the week we were so busy with school nights, work,  and birthday preparations for our youngest  that we weren’t diligent to workout the rest of the week. Honestly, by the end of the week we were dragging. Something about working out gives you a little more energy than when you aren’t. We are working on ways to work fitness in even on our busy days. We are so anxious to get running again.

Next weekend I hope to update with a solution to our workout consistency & busy days.  Until then, have a great weekend Lovelys!
