Thank you to all of you who came out to run Blogger Dash on Saturday in support of the University of Iowa Children’s Hospital!! It was a chilly start, but a gorgeous morning for a run!! We had a blast and hope you did too!! We loved seeing all the runners and walkers, especially those who brought their kiddos out to join them in the stroller! And we have to say, the kids race was definitely a highlight of the event!!
Congratulations to Louis Pelsang, the overall male winner of Blogger Dash!! He finished with a time of 18:32. The overall female winner was Lea Greiner, with a time of 24:01! We had many of our runners and walkers choose to participate in chip timing. You can see their race results HERE. The 1 mile kids race male winner was Carson Pence and the female winner was Sophie Robinson!! Special thanks to the Iowa City Downtown District, Running Wild, Raygun, Midtown Family Restaurant, Revival, The Englert Theater, and The Iowa Children’s Museum for donating items for the winners’ prize packages! All the kids who participated in the 1 mile kids race and the 1/4 mile fun run were awarded a medal!! They did such a great job!!
We also want to send out a big thank you to the sponsors of our event: our friends at Hope Springs Behavioral Consultants, the Children’s Center for Therapy, Sweet Feet Yoga, and Robinson Family Wellness! We could not have put on this event without you!!
One of the highlights of the event was definitely the post-race yoga sessions by Sweet Feet Yoga! They offered a great cool-down session for the adults and another awesome session for the kids! It was definitely one of our kiddos’ favorite parts of the day! We were also thankful for the super cute ice packs Robinson Family Wellness provided in our swag bags!
Another highlight of the event was definitely the Advocare table! We were so happy to have Libby and her adorable girls handing out Spark and refueling everyone after the race! Be sure to check out her website to find out more about what Advocare can do for you and to order some for yourself!!
Speaking of refueling, thank you to Coralville Hy-Vee for donating some yummy bagels and cream cheese for a post-race snack! Thank you also to New Pioneer Co-Op for donating the delicious bananas. And last, but not least, thank you to Midtown Family Restaurant for donating bottled water!
