Hard to believe the 2nd Annual #jandk5k weekend was already a week ago! It was a HUGE SUCCESS! We had such a blast. Yes, we were all a little sore the next day, but that's to be expected :) Friday night the weekend kicked off with a team dinner...now the weekend didn't lack just a bit of drama...Friday night's dinner was supposed to be outside in a gorgeous backyard, but at around 11:30am our 0% chance of precipitation turned into 30% and it looked like it was going to be a mix of rain & thunderstorms all afternoon and evening *small, yet controlled panic ensues* SO...we kicked into high gear and moved the party indoors. Everyone made it and we were nice & dry the whole time! We kicked off the party with champagne, ate some yummy Maggiano's for dinner, mingled a bit & then we played an all request show! It was so fun getting to talk with everyone that had flown or driven in for the event!
We didn't party too late into the night because we all had to be up bright and early for the 5k the next morning. We met up about 45 minutes before the race...looking super "team-like" all in our matching j&k5k tee's ;) We had an awesome cheering section and everyone made it across the finish line! Woohooooo! Team j&k is AWESOME!
We then tailgated post-race with donuts, coffee and other treats. It was a beautiful day in Nashville so we all loved chatting in the sunshine and we obviously took about a million pictures.
Then we sent everyone off to discover our lovely town...or take naps...because everyone needed to be rested up for the Acoustic Covers Release Show. Guys, this show probably made it into our Top 5 shows...ever!!! The room was packed and the energy was amazing. People were singing along to both the covers and our own songs...ahh....it was AMAZING!!!! It was the perfect way to end our 5k weekend :)
We will definitely be doing the 5k weekend again next year...so mark your iCal's ;) We want YOU to be a part of it. If you aren't a runner...that's okay...you have plenty of time to train or we have people that walk the 5k...challenge yourself...you can do it...and besides...we are ALL in this together!
Thanks to everyone we made our 5k weekend so awesome. We love you all.
PS. A big thank you to Ryan, Carly & Emily for being our OUTSTANDING team for this event...they took care of every detail and took such good care of all of our people who traveled in for the weekend....thanks guys...we couldn't have done it without you!
