At the beginning of 2014 I set up some goals for the year. One of them was complete 5K with my son. He is only 9 so to motivate him to join me during exercise I have to look for fun races.
When I heard about the 5K The Super Run, I knew I wanted to do it. What a great way to run with family or friends that dressed up as super heroes?
April 28th is National Superhero Day and to kick it off right The Super Run will have their inaugural event in Detroit, Michigan on April 26th 2014. The Super Run has over 20 locations nationally, and there are more coming soon!
So, what else is cool about this run? Besides the fact that you can have fun dressing up as a super hero, in this run you can select the non-profit that you’d like your fundraising efforts to benefit. This is a family friendly fun run that supports local non-profits to raise funds and awareness for their organizations.
You do not know what to dress up as? No problem, all registered participants will receive an official superhero cape!

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
Exercising does not have to be boring. As a matter of fact, it has to be FUN.
That is why doing a 5k that is fun is so important. I joined some friends and we formed a team. We dressed up on neon lime green tutus and hot pink ripped tights. We laughed and we had a great time.
I had a broken toe, so it was a little hard, but I finished. The water was cold and we got muddy. The course was in the mountains and going up the hill was a little challenging, but it was FUN.
I really recommend that if you are looking to participate in any runs next year you look for the Dirty Girl Mud Run near you. Get your girlfriends, form a team and just have fun. You can run it, walk it or crawl it. Just do it and get dirty!
Are you ready to get dirty?
I received a complementary ticket to be part of the race, however all opinions expressed are my won.
The Dirty Girl Mud Run is an un-timed obstacle course that welcomes women of all ages and athletic abilities. Dirty Girl Mud Run challenges women to get active, get dirty and have fun.
Some of the obstacle course names are H2OMG and PMS (Pretty Muddy Stuff). They can be a little challenging but for sure will have you laughing. But don't worry, if you get to an obstacle that's more than a challenge for you, you can take one of the adventure races detours.
You can do this by yourself or form a team. As past of my journey to get healthier this year I have joined some friends to have fun and be active. What are you waiting for?
