Girl Scout Thin Mint Sprint

Renee U and Renee P both ran the Girl Scout Thin Mint Sprint 5K back on Saturday March 9th. It was a cool, cloudy/slightly rainy day but all the kids that showed up didn't care!

I was there to cheer on my little Girl Scout who ended up doing the 5k without me (due to my toe injury) but she had a couple of girls from our troop with her. She was smiling crossing the finish but said she was super tired afterwards and told me that I told her it was only one mile! Lol, I know I didn't say that!

Cave Creek Trail Run

A few of us chicks (and one chick-daughter) volunteered over the weekend for the Cave Creek Trail Run. It was a nice overcast morning which was perfect for running!

Getting ready for Mountains to Beach

A bunch of our chicks did the Ojai to Ocean Marathon (and half marathon) in 2012. Some of us went along to be roadies (and to enjoy the nice California ocean breeze, cocktails and awesome fish tacos at Beach House Tacos!

This year, the race name has been changed to Mountains to Beach and we have more chicks heading there for the race. They are getting their training runs in bright and early til race week.

Here's some of our M2B chicks below...

Road Runner Sports 1st Thursday Adventure Run

Some of us chicks were addicted to this run last year so we made it to the first one of this year last Thursday night.
I will say the new highlighter yellow shirts are not flattering! There is usually a free beer during the raffle but not this time, only root beer floats :( I guess if we can't have beer, ice cream is a good second choice. We didn't go to the after party at Elephant Bar but the after party is usually fun too.

Rhonda, Renee P, Susie, Amy, Lucy. Susie and Amy left as winners!

Phoenix Marathon

One of our chicks (the one wearing the medal) ran the Phoenix Marathon on March 2nd. It was a pretty warm day to run a full marathon and she still did it in 4:10!

RC3 Chicks Run The Mermaid Series AZ

A few of our chicks ran in a new event in AZ called the Mermaid Series.  The series included a 5k, 10k, Half Marathon and a Mini Mermaid 1.5 mile race.

Pictured from left to right: Renee, Syndie and Kim.  Renne and Kim did the 10k and Syndie did the half marathon placing 4th in her age group and 17th overall in the half marathon!  Way to go Syndie!

A daughter of an RC3 chick, 7 year old Livi, ran the 1.5 mile Mini Mermaid Race all by herself without mom!  So proud of this little chickie!
