This summer will be my very first summer away from Hawai'i, and though the beaches, hikes, and family & friends are and will be surely missed, I'm excited for several events that will all take place this summer here in the mid west.
School will be starting up again for me the first week of june, so that will take up most of my time, with studying and going to class. My birthday is also looming over me that first week of june as well, but that will be for a later post...
First weekend of June is the................. Omaha Warrior Dash!!!
Joel, his sister and I are doing it together and hopefully we'll have a cheer squad at the end. You can read more about it at the link above and if it's coming to your area too, you should definitely try it! I'll be sure to post a recap of it after the event.
Coming in July is the COLOR ME RAD 5k run! This run is going to be really fun! Some of the proceeds go to the Special Olympics, another organization that's close to my heart. It's a cool run/walk, where you're "colored" in different colors of cornstarch along the run! My niece is going to LOVE this event!
Then lastly... the week after the Color run is the Glow Run 5K in Kansas City. It's a newer event but looks just as fun and different. It takes place at night and we're making the town glow with glow sticks and our bright personalities! It will also be my first time in Kansas City, so this will be a fun event for a newbie like me.
So this summer will definitely be fun and exciting. School, work, and the 3 events above will definitely keep me busy but I'm happy to be doing something different this summer. It will be a memorable one for sure.
What are your summer plans this year? Will you be doing any community events or trips? I'd love to hear about them!
