Thanksgiving Day Turkey Trot

with O'Hara Schmeltz

It was a cold and breezy Thanksgiving Day, as I joined hundreds of others in their shorts and tanks or jackets and hoodies. We were all ready, in one fashion or another, to start the race for Courage House’s Turkey Trot in Elk Grove. The funds raised from the event would be put towards homing children rescued from sex trafficking. The course took us along some of Elk Grove’s busy streets and ended back at the business complex were we started. Each participant was given a medallion upon completion of the race.

Weekend Warriors: She Rocks the Trail

Last weekend with Jenn Baeseman

Last weekend I survived the She Rocks the Trail 25k trail run. Starting at the Auburn Dam Lookout and with an overall elevation change of 3,500 feet. It was tough to push through in the summer heat, but was well worth knowing that my efforts were benefiting Fit for Girls.

Weekend Warriors: San Diego & Palm Springs

Last weekend with Clayton Blakley

For Memorial Day weekend I headed down to southern California to visit San Diego and Palm Springs. Between soaking in the sunshine and beautiful views from high-rise balconies, relaxing poolside and enjoying the delicious fare at local hot spots, I think it’s safe to say I had an amazing time.
