More Field Games

We are just full of changes this year! πŸ™‚ One of our personal favorite stations, “Slim Down for the Gown,” has also seen a facelift! We changed some of the “field games” and have expanded to SIX fun obstacles for you to experience with our crazy, talented personal trainer, Jenny!!! You’re going to love Jenny when you meet her! She was wonderful last year and was able to hang out with the girls last year after the run. πŸ™‚
