Will Run for Cookies and Iron

8. September 2013 16:27 by jennifer | 14 Comments

What do cookies and iron have in common?

Not really a whole heck of a lot unless you happen to live in my world during the last weekend of September. Wink

On Saturday September 28th, my daughters and I have been invited to participate in the Thin Mint Sprint 5K and Tag-A-Long Trot 1 mile, sponsored by The Girl Scouts of West Central Florida.

We've decided to tackle the Thin Mint Sprint. We can walk/run, and just have a good time with all the other girl scouts that will be out there!

My girls joined Girl Scouts and started as Daisy Scouts, then bridged to Brownies where they were the last two years. After 3 years of Girl Scouts, this year they would have been Junior's but we're currently looking for a troop closer to home, so they are troopless at the moment. Undecided We have a lot of girls that want to be scouts in our area, but not enough volunteers. I wish I could volunteer, but I can't do it with Ronin. I've got my fingers crossed that we'll get the call of a closer troop very soon!! My daughters have learned a lot of great values being in the Girl Scout program, and last summer they even had the opportunity to spend a week away at a Girl Scout sleep-away camp.

ALL race finishers will receive a MEDAL and the top 50 male and female finishers will receive a box of Girl Scout Cookies!! YUM! 

You can sign up and view the race options HERE.


Now we've covered cookies. Up next is IRON. The day after the Thin Mint Sprint, I'll be heading up to Clermont, Florida to participate in the Iron Girl Triathlon. I've signed up for the  Sprint Distance which includes a 1/2 mile swim, 12 mile bike, 3 mile run. I haven't really been training. Like at all. Surprised Well maybe that's not totally true. I work out every single day. I go swimming (for fun, not laps) a few time per week, and I cycle often. And then I CrossFit, usually 5-6 days per week where I always walk 2 miles after each workout. And recently I've added a 'sled pull' to my post-WOD workout and I think that will have a great impact on my overall performance in Clermont.  So I have been MOVING, I just haven't been practicing like I should be. Especially when it comes to hills. Clermont is hilly. Looking at elevation maps has me intimidated. But I'll finish. And I'll have fun doing it. Some of my best girls will be there to cheer me across the finish line; blogger friends, running friends, and CrossFit friends. And when I cross the finish line, I'll have this beauty to put around my neck.


2 days, 2 medals. All benefiting girls and women. Sweet.

Have you ever participated in a "women's only" race event??

I did a Susan G. Komen walk as a child with my mom and grandma. Nothing else though. I am not big on races.

I have seen the ad for the cookie races several times now but I kept thinking it was the same day at IronGirl. Oops! Now I want to do it. There are several good 5ks here that day. Glad you had a nice ride this morning!!

How awesome! I have never seen this race before!

I haven't participated in a women's only event, but it sounds like fun! I've been looking for races around my area for the fall, but most of them are too expensive for me to join.

I think you are so cool that you are participating in a triathlon! Good Luck to you. As for your girls, I hope they find a troop soon..
