From Beth--since she already posted this morning, and I forgot it's a new month already!!

 

Morning Girls! 

Erika, if I don't get back here later, GOOD LUCK on the half tomorrow.  Rock it out!!!!! 

Dee, have a great weekend!  Hope you have some fun stuff planned.

Katie, enjoy your family time.  How long until you have to go back to work?  Snuggle that baby for me.

More interviews today and then catching up and prepping for next week.  Food's been great and on track, water's been good too, I just need to figure out the exercise part.  Started talking to a new guy yesterday, we'll see how this one goes. 

Later gators!  Happy Friday!!!!!

Good morning from ME now!  Ha!

I have DOMS like nobody's business through my butt and legs--thank you weighted lunges and medicine wall balls!  Geez, louise!

Thank you, Beth!  I will rock it out as much as I can!

I am not a big country music fan but I must say this is very nice to look at. Man I am tired today had a work event until 9:00 last night. Family drove in from Denver so my sleeping was sporadic. The weights we awful heavy today!

Beth – Interviewing is draining that’s for sure! I want to see some abs so I am thinking 15% is what I should shoot for? Weekend = Family eating and wine tours.

Katie – How was your walk? How is big brother adjusting?

Erika – What ya got on the playlist so far? Layers is always a good idea. When I did San Fran I bought a sweat shirt at Walmart for $5 and dropped it. At the end I was so cold I wish I would have had it with me at the time. Yikes for the DOMS I assume you are resting today to prepare for the ½? Water water water!

I can't figure out if I want to wear my compression top or not.  I usually do sports bra, light workout tank, then compression top, and jacket/sweatshirt over it.  Then I would have no problems ditching the sweatshirt--it's supposed to be high of 60, partly cloudy and windy.  Then just my compression running pants, gloves and probably my ear warmers.

I finally got my ipod touch player to get the music, but seriously, it took SO much effort.  So now I need to get a holder for that as I bought it used and never set it up.  SO, buying that tonight.

hey guys. slow start this morning. Fussy baby. Did a few abs, will insist I get some workout time this afternoon when DH gets home. Tried that yesterday, he got a run in, I got a walk. Need a little more than a walk though. Another lunch date today with about 4 friends and their babies. Its Mexican. Will keep my hands out of the chips and stick to water.

Erika- putting music on my phone or iPod drains me.. its just too much effort.. I make DH do it. I COULD do it, but it would take lots of effort, and I have to relearn it every time. Basically I've had the same playlist 4 years or so? Good luck on your 1/2!! Weather sounds like it will be comfortable.

Dee - yum, TIm Mcgraw. I agree that closer to 15% will get you visible abs.

Beth- have a great day today. I go back to work July 1. Its coming to quickly.

Nicolel - have a great day today.




My cup runneth over.

RECAP:

Hey Team!!!! I did it!!

I didn't have a time goal, but my secret goal was that I really wanted to run the whole thing. And I did

The race was downhill for 2 miles along the bluffs--beautiful. And the weather was absolutely fantastic! I actually was overdressed and started stripping pretty quickly

I hit the Relay transition point (between mile 6-7) and I was a little wishful I was done But then I started talking to myself that I'm the girl working out for 2.5 hours twice a week at the gym, and that I could SO do this, even if I hadn't trained specifically for this right now. Then I started thinking about *how* I wanted to finish it--running all of it and looking strong crossing the finish line.

I was pretty hyped up by mile 11 and I knew my family would be at the finish line, which is the first time they've come to watch me race. So, I had a lot carrying me those last couple of miles. My unofficial time was 2:30 on my Garmin.

Lots of people along this course, beautiful weather, kids/men dressed as superheroes holding funny signs, music, motivational posters everywhere--some of my favorites: This seemed like a really good idea 3 months ago! And I thought Nascar was boring to watch! Run now, wine later. Mind over muscle--just keep moving. Your feet are tired because you're kicking so much butt!) all of it was really awesome. But my kids being so impressed with me and my medal really made it all worth it--and redeeming myself on the Half marathon!

So, besides that I ATE a ton right after, picked up our new kitchen countertops (they are so pretty!) and even took a nap. Pretty soon I'm retiring to the couch for a foot rub and some alcoholic beverages I'm feeling pretty good, but the true test will start tomorrow and I waitress, so fingers crossed!!

Hope you all had a terrific Saturday!

Yippee! Great job Erika! Guess I should have looked at May. . You are amazing! I agree about friends at races, I like riding with them to and from, but would rather run at my own pace.

I have my kids put music on my phone. I'm currently listening to an 80s station all the time. Need to train my kids on good music.

Baseball watching tomorrow and then heading out to do the finishing touches on mom's place. I'm ready for Monday to be over, but don't want it to happen either. My dad isn't doing well emotionally with all this. I hope he can rebuild a bit. Just really difficult when one part of your life is closing, I hope he treats this as an opportunity. That is honoring my real mom, not who she is now.

Anywho, Monday is my SIL birthday and after mom is settled we are going to a glass fusion class ( drinks included).

Hope everyone is enjoying your weekend! It is beautiful weather here.


Nicole

Off to hobble and waitress!  The good news about it that I will be forced to move a lot today--and my legs are screaming at me, so I need it!

Have a great Sunday!
