I am a mother to two awesome kids, and have been married to my favorite hubby (okay, my only hubby, but still my favorite!) since October 1999. Our favorite thing to do is get out of the house and find adventures! I am the founder and creator of Enjoy Utah!, a site dedicated to helping families get out of the house and see all that Utah has to offer! I contribute as a blog writer for the Salt Lake Visitors Bureau, and also write CityGuides for SheKnows.com.. I am excited to be a part of Today's Mama! I co-own a DJ Business with my hubby, and also do the online marketing and manage the blog and social media for Gines Auto Service.

Pony Express Fun Run for the Entire Family

Pony Express

Camp Floyd is hosting a Pony Express Fun Run on Saturday, April 13 beginning at 10am. I’ve already signed my family up!

Experience the life of a Pony Express rider and reenact the ride in your running shoes from Camp Floyd to “St Joseph, Missouri” and back. You will deliver the mail in your own haversack, take an oath for the pony express, visit the paymaster and more!

Because the run is only 3.1 miles round trip, it’s a great educational experience for the entire family! I have signed up my entire family (me, my husband, and my two kids; 9 and 7 years old). I am not a big runner, so I will be walking the fun run with my kids.

This is a great way to teach your kids hands-on about the pony express and what they did. Camp Floyd was an actual stop on the pony express route, so it will bring the pony express to life.
