So, I think my body decided to take matters into its own hands last night. After running the 5k Saturday, the Half Marathon Sunday, CrossFitting Monday, and finally CrossFit followed by 4 miles yesterday, my body gave up. I fell asleep on the coach and although I had 7 miles scheduled to run this morning, my body wanted nothing to do with it. I slept … Continue reading Sleepy Pants McGee
Packet Pickup Packet pickup is the day before at a local running shop that was amazing. Only after I left, spending $16 on gels did I find out we had a $15 gift certificate from the race packet. (Damn…) Expo None. The pickup was at a running shop. But there were some tents set up at the actual race. And thank goodness for that since … Continue reading Lacamas Lake Half Marathon
The Aloha 5k took place in Vancouver, Washington. It was a quaint little race. Not time chipped. No official starting line. We literally started in the grass. We were the only people dressed up. But we had a great time! We stayed in Kalama at my mother and father in-laws. That morning June had the most amazing banana protein muffins imaginable. Then off to the … Continue reading Aloha 5k Race Recap

Mandy and I had 14 miles to get into the books today, and knowing it was going to be a hot one, I was so thankful for her company. And it was a hot one, but a good one. And I may have fallen into the river while going to … Continue reading Long run, motivational moment & next weeks plan!
Team BAM ran as The Three Little Pigs. And it totally was a very, very fun race. It was muddier than the one I did a two years ago and the obstacles were still intact and more fun. It was in Spokane, so we headed up around 4:40am, as we were in the 8am heat and our packets hadn’t arrived. It was the perfect temperature … Continue reading Dirty Dash 5k Recap
Well received an email canceling our 5k scheduled for the weekend after next in Portland. It was a huge bummer since we took Friday off, had plans to stay with Bills’ parents whom I adore, and looking forward to being in Portland… So needless to say the entire BAM team were totally bummed. Then I sent the cancellation email to my MIL and she totally … Continue reading It’s a 2fer!!!
After a grueling week and a half survey exited our building yesterday, meaning they gave us an exit interview explaining their findings, and left the building. Their findings were very, very minor and their tags few. And considering they had three additional surveyors and a complaint surveyor, I couldn’t have been happier with the results. We have a strong team, we have great staff, and … Continue reading Survey Exits & Normal Life Enters
