Kansas City, MO Raving since 2019 50 States hopeful/finisher active 2 weeks ago

About Me

  • Running club(s):

    Kansas City Running Club

  • Rave race:

    Des Moines Half Marathon

  • Race that's calling my name:

    San Francisco Half Marathon

  • I run because:

    I started running, because my doctor wanted me to lose weight and to improve my blood pressure.  I keep running, because the running community is so positive and supportive.  I’m not fast, but there are very few at any of the races I’ve been to who are competing.  Most of us are just trying to improve our own times, have a great time, get some exercise and accomplish something.  I also keep running, because of the sense of accomplishment I get each time I cross the finish line.

This course was death by a thousand paper cuts. Lots of hills. Individually they weren’t bad, but it was one after the other and we found it made it more challenging. There were no stations on the course with gu or bananas or other food which also made it more challenging. In past races that has really helped after about the 7th mile. I enjoyed running through the neighborhoods. They were beautiful and the residents were super supportive. The police along the route were also great about cheering us on. The medal and jacket from this event were awesome. Des Moines included some information about the area and a couple of snacks in the race packet. That would have been nice, although this race had an app with a lot of great information.

This was our first half marathon… and it kicked our butts. We had an awesome time and it felt great to cross the finish line. The course was relatively flat. We had never been to Des Moines before and the race offered a great way to see some of the sights. There were great views of downtown and the run through the gardens was nice as well. The course volunteers were great. It was awesome having everyone cheer us on – and they provided energy throughout the course as well. We’ll definitely return for this race.

We ran the 2019 Kansas City Zoo Run (Run for the Tree Kangaroos). It was awesome to support our zoo – and it was really cool running through the zoo. The course was hilly at points which made it a little harder than most races we’ve run, but it was definitely worth it.

The best part of the Royals Charities 5k was getting to run out on the field. The race swag left a lot to be desired, but the race was benefiting charity so I didn’t really mind. There was great food at the finish line and a great atmosphere with the runners. Most of the course was around the parking lot – so not a lot to see, but again when you get out onto the field it was pretty amazing. They even put video of you up on the big screen. That’s probably the only time I’ll get to experience that. Definitely an interesting run and well worth it.

This was a really cool idea. A night run with foam and black lights that make everything glow brightly. It was really poorly executed though. There were a ton of people and they allowed a lot to go at a time. That made it hard to run and the foam stations got really backed up too. The swag wasn’t great, but the cost of the event was very low and most went to charity so it’s easy for me to overlook it. If you’re just looking to have a good time, go for it. Otherwise, I’d probably skip this one.

This was an awesome way to celebrate the holiday. The course takes you down Ward Parkway which is beautiful and a relatively easy run (other than the hill at the end). The motivational signs and community cheering was awesome and made the event so much better. The party at the end was awesome too. Its a really family friendly event with great swag. Definitely make this part of your tradition.

This was an amazing run. It was well themed and the theming extended to the course. There were things to discover all throughout. The swag was first rate. Awesome medal, decent shirts and a wand! If you’re a fan of Harry Potter this is a must hit race.

I’m a huge Sporting KC fan, so I was excited for this run. It takes you through the practice fields and onto Children’s Mercy Park. Instead of a medal, there was a finisher’s scarf and Blue the team mascot was there to distribute them. I wish there was more of Sporting KC in the event, but this was the first year. I’m sure it’ll get better over time. The funds go to support the Victory Project which is an awesome charity.

It was really awesome running out onto the field at Arrowhead Stadium. Unlike the other runs organized by professional sports team, the Chiefs allowed you onto the field and into the locker room. There was a great party on the field after the run which was pretty cool. There was no medal for this run, but the shirt was really nice. Much better quality than what you get at other runs. The Chiefs did a great job of supporting the run. Definitely one we’ll do again.

I know this isn’t a timed run, but it was so positive and so uplifting. This was my first run and I’m glad I did this. The team on the course was super uplifting and encouraging. It was a lot of people, but they organized the start really well. I’ll definitely be back next year.
