BeaverDash 5K

Mastermind Weekend 1/16

Hey there!

I'm Tina

Happy Saturday! ๐Ÿ˜€

I just got back from running the BeaverDash 5K with Chandra and a bunch of her friends. I’m crazy and decided to do it late last night while I was in a drunken stuper! ๐Ÿ˜†


Chandra was definitely more energetic than me this morning!


The raceย route went through the scenic (and adorable) residential area Beaverdale and finished in the downtown area. The route was nice and flat, so I thought I might be able to break a PR, but my wine hangover got in the way of that goal. ๐Ÿ˜• I finished in 26:30, which isn’t a bad time, but it wasn’t pretty. I felt terrible and gross, but I learned my lesson!


After the race, we headed to breakfast at a nearby restaurant. I ordered eggs with bacon and toast. Eating made me feel soย much better!


I also did some “day drinking” after the race, but it was really tough to get down my beer. It did not agree with me. ๐Ÿ˜•


Recap of yesterday coming soon!



  1. So jealous you got to run this. I grew up in Beaverdale and it seems every year since I started running I have class the morning of this 5k! Hope you had a blast! By the way – never knew they had an actual beaver mascot! Hysterical to me!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Congrats on the run! Sounds amazing!
    I have been reading your blog for a few months and your posts are always so inspiring. So much so that you have inspired me to start a blog of my own!
    Just wanted to give you a huge thank you! Made my first post yesterday!

  3. love your blog and have read it for awhile. I live in des moines and it is fun to see your recaps of some of the places i like to go to (smokey row, beaverdale, court ave brewery) Hope the rest of your trip is fun…minus the hangover!

  4. Wowzers! Congratulations! I guess that’s definitely a better drunk decision to have made than what other people decide to do when drunk… ๐Ÿ˜›

  5. Totally agree that your hangover time beats my normal time! ๐Ÿ™‚ Love that you tried to day drink afterwards as well. You’ve got stamina!

  6. SO proud of you that you did the 5k! My plan is to do one this spring..after losing a bunch of weight, I’m still not a runner, but would like to become one! At least I’ve got plenty of time to get my booty in gear!
