As you know, the weather in St. Louis can be pretty unpredictable and it's always exciting to get those surprise warm days in the middle of winter! We wanted to share a fun outdoor activity in Forest Park! In the fall, GOTRSTL staff had a fun day of teambuilding. We ran all around Forest Park on a scavenger hunt and did Friend-Building Challenges, Physical Challenges and Good Deeds. The scavenger hunt clues are below and they are separated into areas of the park.

Rachel had stealthily trained for the half marathon and left her race plans out of discussions about her trip. Today, Rachel gives us a glimpse at her inner dialogue before during and after her half marathon.

And it is hard to stay motivated to run outside, run inside, or be active at all during the end-of-year holiday season. When I heard about the Runners World/Charity Miles #RWRunStreak challenge, I was intrigued.
