This year, I added more events to the Jelly Bean. Congratulations to the ladies below who finished ALL 4 EVENTS! That's a 5k, 10k and half marathon run, plus a 21k bike ride - all in one week! Sorry no prizes, but you did complete 'RockStar' status in my book!
BEST GROUP EFFORT
Led by Sheila A., the Towpath Turtles gathered a large group on Day 1 in Ohio.
... and I see someone made cupcakes!!
Whitney and her bike group in Arkansas took advantage
of the new bike category in the Jelly Bean this year.
Nicole's Weight Watchers group got creative with their Jelly Bean race.
Each woman picked a different jelly bean color to dress in.
They made it a family affair with the husbands and children too.
And of course, my group in Peoria, IL that kicked it all off.
If you missed it, read my race recap here.
Jill and Anna had a breath-taking run with their husbands in North Carolina.
When Jess K. sent me this photo from her run in Ohio,
I instantly wanted to be there on that trail with her!
Vanessa and her gorgeous surroundings belong in a magazine, don't you think?
Look at the bed of beautiful flowers Jo Lynn and her pals found in Texas.
Kelly and her friends got festive in Wisconsin.
and painted their faces like the Easter Bunny himself. They called their race
"a HARE-raising run". During their run in Washington, they
were eyed up by a policeman and even made some kids scream.
A FAMILY AFFAIR
Jill and her husband enjoyed their first run together in years.
Stephanie even brought medals for her kids' finish line run.
YOU MADE ME LAUGH!
Melissa embraces the Jelly Bean spirit!
Shanda's son completely photo-bombed this picture,
but he earned it since he ran the 5k with his mom!
