HAPPY DODGE CITY DAYS!

This time of year is probably better than Christmas. It’s like a big festival celebrating Dodge City, KS that goes all the way into August! It’s super fun and exciting.

This years theme is “Stash Bash – A Twist On The Old West.” So basically everyone wears mustaches! Even Taylor and I!

The kick-off for Dodge City Days is always a 5k at 7:30 in the morning called the Dodge City Days Shootout!

The course was really nice and a small challenge in some places. It was actually PRETTY cool this morning.. 70 degrees or so?

For about 3/4 of the way, I ran with a girl named Jayne from CrossFit. As you could see, there were quite a few of us running! It was fun seeing everyone I workout with out on the course.

I finished in a 25 something. Right after I finished I turned around and ran a half mile back to find Sam and run the rest with her!

After the run, the Dodge City Day’s Parade starts at 9:30. This is the first year I’ve gotten to watch in 6 years or so! Everyone was wearing there mustaches and it was AWESOME!

The Parade lasted an hour and ten minutes – and we were at the beginning of it!

Tonight the Roundup Rodeo Arena is hosting the DC Days Concert: Headliner is Gloriana! I’m not yet sure if I’m going tonight or not. We have tickets, but I may wind up going to decorate for a bridal shower that takes place tomorrow!

I LOVE DODGE CITY DAYS!

Run on.
