The Athleta Iron Girl Expo

Good day, how you doin? Me? Spectacular!

No running today because I am running the Iron Girl Half tomorrow. I’ve been wanting to do this race for a few years now so I’m super excited. Today was the race expo and I convinced my Mom to go along with me.

This is the tenth year of the Athleta Iron Girl race series. I love the fact that it’s a women only race and everyone is so supportive. If you are interested in learning more about the Athleta Iron Girl race series, you can visit their website. Here is a little excerpt from the site:

“Iron Girl empowers women to discover their personal best, embrace strength and celebrate accomplishment in a supportive community of women that will cheer them on. The event is about women with all the touches and amenities developed with women in mind. Whether this is your first or 100th event, there is a place for you at Iron Girl.”

Has she lost her mind, Can she see or is she blind?

Did you see that bridge, oh wait there’s two, holy shit!

Yeah, I’m kind of freakin out on the bridge deal. Obviously after my little run in Tennessee I have realized that Big Hills + Up and Humming = Turtle Power!

After the expo, I got my pre race fuel on with a little dinner from Codys Roadhouse.
