Join Me in being Pretty Muddy!

April 11th, 2013 | Posted in Local by Meli

If the image above looks like your idea of spending a day with the girls, then you are definitely going to want to check out the Pretty Muddy 5k. It was initially the brain child of two businessmen who were constantly in awe of their wives and everything they managed to juggle on a daily basis. They wanted them (& all women in general) to have a way to get together and focus on friendship, fun and fitness – without their significant others, their kids and the stress of the daily grind. And so Pretty Muddy was born!

What I like about this 5k is that it is all about fun. It doesn’t matter if you have to go around some obstacles you don’t feel comfortable with or aren’t a lifetime member of Crossfit. This is just an event to promote health, happiness and friendship among women. And what’s not to love about that?

If you want to join me in being Pretty Muddy in Miami, sign up for the race (I’ll be racing during the 12 noon wave)! It isn’t until December, so you have more than enough time to prepare, if that’s what you want to do. For me, it will be right after our trip to the UK & Amsterdam, so I’m sure I’ll need the added exercise (heh).

Creative 5K’s Coming to Town

November 8th, 2012 | Posted in Health, Local by Meli

Although I’m not one of those girls that gets excited about going to the gym or working out (can’t I just stay in bed sipping on a mimosa?), I love the slew of creative 5K’s that are popping up all over the place lately! I think it’s not only a great way to get active, but also a unique way to spend time with friends and do something a little different. Although “different” may be easy to find elsewhere, it is definitely lacking in Miami so I am very glad to see some of these quirky races coming to our neck of the woods.

Here are just a few that are coming our way;

1. 5K Foam Fest || 2. Color Me Rad 5K || 3. Pretty Muddy || 4. Dirty Girl Mud Race

Would you participate in a fun 5K?
I think I’m going to attempt the Color Me Rad race in February! Any takers?
