Tulip Time 10k

Happy Wednesday!

This past Saturday, I've done something that I've never done before- register for a race at the registration tent 10 minutes before the race starts! Ahh!!!!
Talk about insanity!!!!!

Holland is known for their beautiful tulips and every May, they have their annual Tulip time festival. It has a 5k run and 10k run. My friend, Eileen has been training for her first 10k. She's an amazing human with so much strength!
Originally, I was just going to cheer her on, but then I decided to join her for a nice run! It didn't turn out to be such a faboulous run, but we had a great time. 
Her daughter, Emma is a beautiful soul and we met them when we served at Starlite Shores. Emma has cancer. Eileen , Emma their entire family are completely amazing.
I'm super proud of this lady! She has set a new PR for finishing her first 10k. We got to look at some beautiful tulips and enjoy the scenes of Holland, Michigan.
Would I run the tulip time race again? Sure! However, I've got a bunch more races on my bucket list and this one isn't on it anymore! Check it off the list!

Q: Do you register for races at the registration tent?

Too funny! Glad you were able to run this race...and with a friend, too! The tulips are gorgeous! :) Yes, I've registered at a race tent before, but not on purpose...I kind of accidentally forgot to register online before the deadline! Whoops!
