This weekend marked my thirtieth birthday. My fellow BAM race partners set up an entire amazing birthday weekend. It began Friday at work with a giant office surprise filled with a trillion super thoughtful gifts, flowers, cakes, snacks, soda and wine! These two were so thoughtful, I can’t begin to explain how much I appreciated it. Saturday morning (5am) we set out for Bend, Oregon … Continue reading Cosmo 7k & Champagne Bike Ride
Tomorrow is the last day of my 20s. I hear all these people say that they didn’t handle their 30th well. Am I thrilled about no longer being in my 20s? No. Not thrilled. Am I upset about it? No. Not at all. My life is right where I want it at 30. Is it perfect? No. But is it great? Totally. So far, no … Continue reading Tomorrow marks the last day of my 20s…
I have this girlfriend, who shall remain nameless, that has the most distorted view of herself. Everyday she is making huge changes, in her weight, in her strength, in her life. Yet she never sees in herself what the people around her see. And I think, that’s probably true for most people. Or we always are looking around at other thinking, I wish I was … Continue reading Be Nice to Yourself
This was one of the funnest and best put together obstacle races I’ve run this summer. Amber and I headed over mid-day Friday. We stayed with my MIL and FIL. They seriously are the best cooks imaginable, they made salmon, veggies and fresh tomatoes. Yum. Then we had some delicious blackberry crisp. Omg. So flippin’ good. The next morning, after coffee and some mediocre huckleberry … Continue reading Kiss Me Dirty 5k Recap
After today’s workout, my legs are already killing me. I have a feeling that I won’t be walking without a slight waddle tomorrow. After returning home, I used a product a gal out of Canada sent me this week, called Deep Blue. The funny thing is my mother-in-law sent me this very same product a few months ago. What the heck? What a coincidence? This … Continue reading Bring on the waddle walk!
Monday is off to a great start!! CrossFit, run on the treadmill and currently icing the foot! A little coffee and this day is set!! And some Monday motivation!!! Continue reading Monday Motivation!
This week has wrecked havoc on my training… I ran once. I CrossFitted three times. And I ate like shit all week. Not having my normal routine (i.e. a sleeping adult in the house, while I sneak out at 5am) and no meal prep or grocery shopping for the week, resulted in a shit-show of a week. Today, I got the house back in shape, … Continue reading It’s Sunday!
I can finally run again! No it’s not pretty. And no it doesn’t feel good. But, yes, I can do it!!! So Friday I finally ran 7 miles, it was on my treadmill, not terribly painful but terribly boring. Then took Ms Kimbo for a walk and it still felt pretty dang good. Friday afternoon we headed to Portland for the Warrior Dash. My sister, … Continue reading Warrior Dash Recap
This day was a total roller coaster. Beginning, wake up at 4:20am, drink PreWorkout, change into CrossFit clothes and new shoes, and out the door. I’m seriously loving CrossFit Rove; love the coaches, love the people that workout there and love the feeling after I finish. Today was a great benchmark workout. Hustle home for “snuggle time” with each of the girls. Then they are … Continue reading Roller Coaster Kind of Day
