Race Report: California Kiley’s Summer 2017 Fun Run Series – The Liquid Run

Hi everyone California Kiley here with another Summer Fun Run. As summer is now in full swing in a lot of area road racing kind of shuts down during the hotter weather months but I was invited out to a race that is all about summer running. Held in Newport Beach California The Liquid Run is a race like no other race out there. This is a floating obstacle race that measures 1/4 mile. I expected it to be small and pretty easy being only a 1/4 of a mile. Having run so many full marathons this year I felt I could take on the Liquid Run with no problems but I will tell you this was a great workout and I was sore the next day!! The best part it was a blast I think this was my favorite fun run to date!

19578140_10155471518868252_1641603966_n

Here’s the details on the race:

  • It run 9-5 so if getting up early sounds awful not a problem you can run it late. Or make it a all day event your choice if you upgrade your registration to VIP you can run the course as many times as you like. If you want to make it an all day beach day it’s the best day to do it as people are running the course all day and it’s actually really fun to watch!
  • I give this a great “Mommy and Me” stamp as it’s a great race to have kids at. Every paid adult gets a kids free play wristband which is a really fun float area.
  • There is a competitive heat at 9am so if you want to run fast then 9am is your race. This is a great time to watch as a lot of the serious racers are really trying to kill the course next year I’m going to totally be there to at least witness it!
    The Liquid Run swag!

    The Liquid Run swag!

  • No running experience needed
  • Swag is awesome! Instead of a T-shirt you get a medal at the end, a pair of sunglasses, sunscreen, a string bag, and a waterproof phone carrying case which we used during the race!
  • Staff was amazing!! Literally the nicest most helpful group ever! Volunteers who I was informed are mostly all returns from the past year because of how much fun they had volunteering! That’s pretty cool in itself.

This race had really only had one small con and that is it can get bottlenecked if you have a struggling group in front of you. Really this isn’t the worst thing in the world as I’m not really in any great hurry since it’s not timed and really there isn’t a huge hurry but know it will most likely take you about 2 hours to run the whole course since you will wait to conquer some of the bigger obstacles.

Only reasons not to do this race:

  • If you are deathly afraid of the water the floating obstacles sit in deeper water but you are provided with a life vest you will still end up in the water at least in the start and the end. You don’t need to be Michael Phelps though to do this race so even if your swimming level is low you are good to go.
  • You are no fun at all and think spending a day at a beautiful California beach is a bad idea!

Talking with the race directors the main mission of the race is to have fun and realize that this isn’t about cut off times or age group awards it’s really about a good time. I can honestly say this race has found a way to really take summer running to the next level! As they try to expand to different areas and more races a year I hope to be back for more of their races because it was truly the most fun I’ve had. Thank you to Sarah for coming along and helping me with pictures, video and interviews! A huge thank you to The Liquid Run staff, volunteers and runners for having us out at your super cool event! The race director said it best “we just want everyone to have a happy day!” Well Run All the Races had the happiest day thank you again!

California Kiley

California Kiley’s Summer 2017 Fun Run Series: The Fat Boy 5K

California Kiley’s Summer 2017 Fun Run Series: The Fat Boy 5K

Hi everyone, California Kiley here!

Welcome to the second post of my new series: California Kiley’s Summer 2017 Fun Run Series.

Several weeks ago, I signed up for another “new to me” race in Long Beach, CA The Fat Boy 5k.

This 5k is all about food and started in Baton Rouge, LA. The name and structure of the race didn’t first draw me in but, after seeing pictures of the New Orleans race on Instagram – and my running friend Jean talking me into joining her I reached out to find out more about this run.  Turns out, it’s all about food and fun.

So this weekend I will be heading to Shoreline Aquatic Park and running this 5k.  Want to join me?  Sign up here.

Stay tuned for more 5k fun runs still to come!

California Kiley’s Summer 2017 Fun Run Series: The Great Donut Run

California Kiley’s Summer 2017 Fun Run Series: The Great Donut Run

Hi everyone, California Kiley here!

Welcome to the first post of my new series: California Kiley’s Summer 2017 Fun Run Series.

This summer I’m super excited to highlight a series of “fun runs.”  “Fun runs” average 5K in length, are generally themed, and many are untimed.  These races are perfect for everyone from hardcore marathoner to the those just starting out.  5Ks are great as summer races as they get you out there moving – without leaving you out in the hot sun forever.

First “fun run” on my list is The Great Donut Run held in Irvine, CA – where eating donuts in the middle of the race actually happens at the donut stop!

After weeks of hardcore races it was so awesome to have a great time at a stress free untimed 5k. Since the sponsor was Krispy Kreme Doughnuts my ideas for costumes were centered around their color schemes. This was one of the largest group costumes we have done in a while but it came together really well.

The box hat was my brain child that did stress me out because of the weight and getting it to sit right on your head. I manged to construct 3 of the hats. Lucky for me, my fellow running friend Jean helped make the other 3 since I was out of supplies – and time – to make more. Aprons were ordered and the logos were off the many donut boxes that were given to us. The mini donuts were another one of my brain children and were handmade over the course of 3 days.

Huge thank you to the Krispy Kreme Doughnut stores in Orange, Long Beach and Mission Viejo, CA that supplied us with all the boxes and hats used to create this costume!

This summer I’ve really focused my attention on a bunch of fun and different races in order to find a new love of running – as well as to share that this sport really is for anyone that wants to try it!

Stay tuned for more 5k fun runs still to come!

#FridayFunday: A Race of a Different Color…[The Color Run]

#FridayFunday: A Race of a Different Color…[The Color Run]

It all started a few months ago when California Kiley reached out to the rest of the RunAllTheRaces gals and asked if we would be interested in running The Color Run. I’m all for running all the races but – as a known neat freak – I’m not gonna lie…the thought of getting all those colors on my running gear (and myself) makes me more than a little bit nervous.

It just so happens that I will be in Boston, MA for work exactly when The Color Run hits Boston.  Sometimes you need to take one for the team (and the blog).  So just what have I gotten myself into?

What is The Color Run?

The Color Run

The Color Run, also know as the Happiest 5K on the Planet, is a unique paint race that celebrates healthiness, happiness, and individuality.  Now the largest running series in the world, The Color Run has been experienced by over 6 million runners worldwide in 35+ countries.  And that number will soon be 6 million and 1…

How does The Color Run Work?

Less about your 10-minute-mile and more about having the time of your life, The Color Run is a five-kilometer, un-timed event in which thousands of participants, or “Color Runners”, are doused from head to toe in different colors at each kilometer. With only two rules, the idea is easy to follow:

  • Wear white at the starting line
  • Finish plastered in color

This year’s events includes dreamy colored foam and new colors (PURPLE!) in the classic powder Color Zones. Along the course, participants can paint their aspirations on the Dream Wall, snap whimsical photos with giant unicorns, and get the ultimate color inspiration as they party with friends at the Finish Festival amidst vibrant bursts of color throws.

Want to register for The Color Run?

Unicorn Army

You can join me for The Color Run Boston on 11 June 2017.  If not, I’ll miss you, but there’s additional races across the country currently scheduled through November 2017.

Your individual or Team (4+ runners) registration includes:

  • Race entry
  • Limited-edition Dream Tour race shirt
  • Embroidered headband
  • Temporary tattoo
  • One-of-a-kind UNICORN Finisher’s Medal
  • Color packet

EVEN BETTER: Use Coupon Code DREAM5 to save $5.00 off your registration.

Wanna dress like a unicorn?

So now I all have to do is get my unicorn on in time to look fabulous for the race. Lucky for me (and you) there’s a lot of unicorn going around these days.

Here’s some of my favorite potential unicorn-themed race costumes that still ensure all the awesome colors will be highlighted:

Stay tuned to see what I’ve selected…

How to get your color on (or off, if you’re me)

Screen Shot 2017-05-31 at 3.26.41 PM

There’s good news for everyone here – no matter whether you want to savor the color on your next run or remember it fondly – and just in your race photos 😉

To keep your color:

  • Pre-Race:
    • Dress the part and wear white. The more white you wear at the beginning, the more color you’ll see on your clothes at the end! So deck yourself out in bright white and be ready to get colorful!
      • Though the color will eventually wash out of just about everything, you may not want to bring your Peg Perego Stroller… Or your $500 running shoes… Or your white suede pants.
  • Post-Race:
    • After the run, spray your colorful clothing with vinegar until soaking wet. Allow them to dry in the sun, then tumble dry in the dryer to set in the color and make a cool souvenir. Voila! The perfect souvenir to remind you of all the memories.

To clean your color:

  • Pre-Race:
    • Oiling your hair well on race morning will make it easier to wash out the color later. Coconut oil or olive oil work best. A good leave in conditioner will do the trick as well. This is a particularly useful tip for runners with light colored or highlighted hair.
    • We suggest some form of Color Run eyewear. Some people wear sunglasses or swim goggles. Have some fun with it and try to avoid getting a lot of powder in your eyes.
    • Some runners wear a thick scarf or bandana to cover their hair. Others use the bandana to cover their mouth as they run through the color zones or to help wash off after. However you choose to use it, a bandana or scarf is pretty useful at The Color Run.
  • Post-Race:
    • Dust off as much dry powder as you can before you apply any water. Take advantage of our “Color Blower Station” at the post race festival for some help. Most of the color will evaporate like magical fairy dust.
    • Cleaning your hair: Dust any loose powder out of your hair. Rinse out the oil/conditioner you wisely applied before the race with cold water. Most of the color should come right out. Now wash your hair as you normally would. It is not uncommon for hints of some of the color, pink and purple particularly, to stick around for a few washes. Wear it like a badge of honor. Or wear a hat.
    • The color is probably not coming all the way out of your white cotton shirt. You should be proud of that. But just about everything else should clean up fine. Remove all excess powder before adding water. Wash your Color Run gear separately, with COLD water. Oxiclean, or a similar product, will work wonders on your running equipment. Every so often you may look down a see a little trace of pink on your shoe and smile. It’ll remind you that we love you. Eventually, it’ll all be gone.

I’ll be back after the race to share my (colorful) photos and race experience.

Thanks for following along –

Perfectly Goofy Gail

Throwback Thursday: 2015 Tinker Bell Half Marathon Weekend New Balance Girls Night Out Event

Throwback Thursday: 2015 Tinker Bell Half Marathon Weekend New Balance Girls Night Out Event

In honor of #ThrowbackThursday, the ladies of Run All The Races are looking back on the 2015 Tinker Bell Half Marathon Weekend and a very unique special event – the New Balance Girls Night Out.

Launched in 2014, New Balance Girls’ Night Out (GNO) is designed to offer women the opportunity to redefine what a “night out” with their girlfriends means to them and share their experiences using #NBGNO on Twitter and Instagram.

Music. Fitness. Squad Goals. This is endorphin-fueled frenzy at its finest.  A heart-pumping, butt-kicking workout event with expert fitness hosts, nutritious eats, and super swag.  So grab your girls, grab your gear, and get ready for a different kind of night on the town.

It was fate that we just happened to be on our phones at exactly the right time to see a quick post on the Disney Parks Blog about how to sign up for the event.  We managed to snag spots and were excited to get a chance to try something different this race weekend.

Upon confirmation that we were accepted to the event, we were informed that the event was to take place at Disney’s Grand California Hotel & Spa Convention Center.  Oh, and by the way, wear athletic clothes, as we were going to have to earn our pampering and snacks.

My precious...

My precious…

The focus of the #NBGNO event was – of course – the runDisney New Balance Tinker Bell shoes, which were released specifically at the Tinker  Bell Half Marathon race weekend. The table decorations included the shoes and twinkling fairy lights – so cute.  We’d been to the Race Expo on the first day and managed to snag these beauties ourselves (and Kimberly and Jessica even sported them to the event!).

11257198_10152900567671032_6642185823206752413_n

Please don’t let me fall over in front of all these people…pretty please.

As we checked into the event we were ushered into the ballroom and discovered that we were going to get our yoga on!  We grabbed mats, spread out around the floor, and mixed and mingled with our fellow participants.

Then it was time for stretching and posing.  I’ll be the first to admit that while I love yoga, I’m definitely NOT the most limber person in the world (I blame RunningAllTheRaces…and getting older…).  A live DJ provided some great tunes (and covered up all our giggling at ourselves and our weak yoga game).

This part we ARE good at...

This part we ARE good at…CHEERS!

Rebecca’s daughter getting a little massage (and that’s water in her glass – we promise!).

The mellowing out continued after the yoga with a champagne toast in New Balance glasses, wine, snacks and mini spa treatments!  After you finished your champagne, there were calligraphy artists there that personalized your glass with your name and pixie dust accents before you took it home as a souvenir.  I still have mine – it sits on a shelf right under all my runDisney medals.

We had a great time at this event and have been hoping New Balance would bring it back at either Tinker Bell or Princess Half Marathon Weekends – running shoes crossed it does make another appearance!

Thanks for following along –

2017 Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend: Meet #TeamCigna – Angela Tiedeman #WDWMarathon

2017 Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend: Meet #TeamCigna – Angela Tiedeman #WDWMarathon

As the ladies of RunAllTheRaces get ready for the 2017 Walt Disney World Marathon weekend presented by Cigna, we’re excited to share the inspirational stories of some of the members of #TeamCigna.
************************************************************************
     Angela Tiedemann, 30 years old from Belleville, IL,  is a health educator and health coach at Cigna whose passion is empowering angla-1others toward wellness. When she’s not helping others to achieve their health and fitness goals, Angela stays physically active and fit, and takes to the trails hiking with her husband, Dan Tiedemann. What her picture doesn’t show is Angela and her husband are heading into their third year of their journey with fertility issues. 
     Infertility is growing problem in the U.S. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) about 12% of women of childbearing age have fertility issues. The causes of infertility involve women and men about equally. 
     “This journey is very difficult for both of us. We’re learning a lot together—how to move through the ups and downs and stay hopeful. We both have to find ways to keep our spirits lifted when we are sad.”  
     Rescuing their three dogs and cat has helped rescue the Tiedemann’s spirits along with staying focused on their health through exercising and eating healthier.  
     “For me,” said Angela, “running helps me physically, mentally and emotionally whether listening to music to clear my mind or by helping me get focused on how to overcome a challenge that lies ahead.” Angela has been running since 2010 and completed several half marathons and four full marathons, including the marathon in Walt Disney World, a place that brings her a lot of joy. 
     This past fall, Angela bravely opened up to her community at Cigna by entering and to her surprise winning Cigna’s annual employee contest with her short essay on why she wants to run the Walt Disney World marathon presented by Cigna this January. Cigna sponsors the annual Walt Disney World® Marathon Weekend as part of its mission to encourage healthier living for all people. Employees across the organization voted Angela the winner and on Sunday, January 8, Angela will run the Walt Disney World marathon. Cigna is providing travel expenses, race entry and day passes to the Disney parks for Angela and her husband who will be cheering her on every step of the way.  
     “I hesitated before hitting the send button on my contest submission this time because it is personal. But, by sharing my experience, angela-2I’ve connected with more people who are very supportive, and learned so much and felt so much better hearing others’ stories and journeys. It helps to know someone else has been in your shoes and knows exactly what it feels like. I hope I can also be a source of support for others struggling with fertility issues.” Angela is glad she opened up; many Cigna colleagues reached out to her because of the employee contest as a way to show their support. As part of her submission, she wrote: 
     “My husband and I have been trying to expand our family for over 2 years now unsuccessfully. This has been a very mentally, physically, and financially trying time for both of us. We recently went through our first unsuccessful round of IVF. This was very difficult for both of us. . . [To run the marathon in Walt Disney World] will be a great way to spend a fun-filled, uplifting weekend with my husband as we continue to try and stay positive in this process.”  
     After Angela crosses the finish line in Disney, she and her husband are looking forward to taking their journey one day at a time and being grateful for many positives in their life.  
     “Unfortunately, there are a lot of women struggling with infertility, and I know how difficult it can be. I remind myself to try my best to live one day at a time. And try to know there are a lot of people out there like me, and a lot of people out there who can provide support.”
