thisiscarrie I get to wear a lot of different "hats" during the week, but my favorite "hat" right now is when I pull on my @sparkleathletic visor and our team shirt and turn into an elementary school Run Club coach. 145 kids spend Tuesday and Thursday afternoon sweating with me---our biggest group yet! Today, they all ran a mile...many of them for the very first time in their life. It was hard and it was hot but the smiles that came at the finish line when so many proclaimed "I did it!", just can't be beat. #fortheloveofrunning #iadoremywhistle #teamsparkle 2d
  •   chrisannasaums Love 2d
  •   ramonarose Squeee! I need that shirt for my boy!!! Where did you get it? (just checked the sparkle store and don't see it) 2d
  •   thisiscarrie @ramonarose I designed it special for my run club team. It has our school name and mascot on the front. Maybe someday we'll have to make a tank for the sparkle shop! 2d
  •   ramonarose Yes please! 2d
  •   mommasmosaic How do you start a run club? That's awesome! 2d
  •   find_your_happy_pace That's Awesome! 1d
  •   happymeetscrazy I love this! Our elementary school has a Mileage Club that meets at lunch recess during the fall and spring. Mark loves it so much and earned 8 miles before they had to shutdown for winter. He's excited for it to start again next month! 1d
  •   ali.brians.girl I want that shirt...in a tank top...YES please! 1d

thisiscarrie 13+ miles. 2000+ feet of elevation gain. The #intothewild21K trail race was HARD and awesome and HARD and fun. High points: #running down the hills, awesome #teamsparkle fans on the course, placing 7th overall woman. Low points: blisters from my beloved @hokaoneone shoes and getting passed on a hill at mile 12 by a long-haired wiener dog. #runallthetrails 7d

thisiscarrie Despite how unwelcome the employee made us feel before we even parked our cars (telling our group of 8 moms and 12 kids, "This is not a park, this is a research facility. You have to keep them quiet"), the Tucker Wildlife Sanctuary is a great destination for kids! The nature center is full of activities for kids and there are short little walks with great nature learning opportunities and access to longer @ocparks trails. #shemusthavebeenhavingabadday #cantscareusaway #raisingnaturelovers #wildandfreechildren 1w

  •   carissajoy @thisiscarrie I'll be in SD for Hot Chocolate 15k on Sunday! I would love to join you girls one of these days! Let me know when you'll do a shorter run again! 1w
  •   rebgred @thisiscarrie Are you literally running all the trails, like within a certain radius or something? Love it! 1w
  •   thisiscarrie @rebgred no, not really. Just focusing more on trail running and hiking and exploring more trails than the standards we've been running, hiking, and biking the last few years. 1w
  •   runningcupcake @carissajoy you gotta play with us sometime! 1w
  •   carissajoy @runningcupcake I'd love that!!! 1w

thisiscarrie In just a few weeks I'll be running #ragnarSoCal as part of Ultra #TeamSparkle to help raise awareness and funds for Rett Syndrome, a devastating neurological disorder that affects mostly girls, stealing their ability to control their body, their hands, their voice. I'm #running because they can't. But I believe someday they will. If you'd like to donate, please check out the link in my profile. Every little bit helps. #untilshecan #gp2c #ragnar4rett #rettsyndrome 1w
