It's been a while!

Well it's been a while since I've posted. I've had a crazy year almost 2 since I've last posted but they are full of races. I completed several races last year including 2 half marathons, and getting my Spartan Trifecta for 2014. After a bout of illness I am finally back on track for 2015. AROO!

Back on Track!

Here we go. I am finally getting back on track. At least as far as working out goes. I don't have the best support system on my diet and I am really struggling to fight temptations daily. Hoping that my BF will stop bringing sweets home. Lets face it at least once a Month I'm a SUCKER for sweets! So to get to the point of this post I am now at the point in my program where I will be running again. WOOT!! As further motivation I am all signed up for the Spartan Beast in December! Can't wait! It's going to be a huge challenge and I can't wait. So, since I have just  begun Phase 2 I've include a before and after Pic from Phase 1.

After Feeling Strong!

Run/Walk all of June

Hey all! Just updating. So far this month I have either ran or walked everyday. I've noticed that I burn more calories by walking now though... is that right? According to Ismoothrun it seems to be the case. Well today I ran 3 miles then I hiked about another mile before heading back to my car. It was a great day for a run/walk/hike. Perfect weather and temperature. I've also lost 2lbs in the last week, which is great. that means I only have 8 more to lose to reach my current goal of a 10lb weight loss. Granted I would love to lose a lil more too. Anyway there's my update. Check out my colorful run today :)

Finally Recovering!

Getting ready to head out for Sunday run. It is great to finally be over injuries and illness. I have had terrible luck so far this year with all that. I'm hoping that's behind me so I can really focus on getting in shape rather than getting well enough to get in shape. This year has been a rough one with many set backs. I am trying to stay positive. It's soooo hard! Thankfully music is always there for me and helps me get going when I'm down. So for now it's time to pound some pavement!

It's Been A While!!! ColorMeRad2013

Hey all, It's been a bit since I have posted. I sprained my ankle and am finally getting well enough to work out again. The Good news is that I have not gained any weight. In fact it turns out that my scale is off about 5lbs and I've actually lost weight. According to the scale in the doctors office. Since I have not been running so much I have started boxing classes which I have really liked and have proved to kick my butt every time. If I am going to go for a run it will have to be prior to any boxing class that's for sure. I'm always dead after!

Today however, I ran/walked a 5k with a couple of friends. We did the Color Me Rad in Fort Worth. It was a lot of fun despite the sunburns we all got. It was a great time. We ran a good portion of it, but so many people were walking it was just getting difficult to get around the crowds so we just fell in. Enjoy the photos and if you get a chance to do one of these they are a lot of messy, colorful fun with friends!

Random Guys... LMFAO?
Is that someone Photo Bombing us?
Yep! Then he asked if any of us were single. Sorry we're all taken.

Well, lets face it a lot of us runners dream of running the Boston Marathon. For me that hasn't changed. I figured I will peak in my 30s and make that qualifying time. Now, will I go after what has happened? Will there still be a Boston Marathon. Well, I hope so and if there is I will be there! Everyday in other countries there are bombings and we may or may not hear about them. We are very fortunate that we live here and when something like this happens, it may only happen once as we figure out more ways to prevent similar "terrorist attacks". I feel for the families and friends of the victims and the victims themselves. I hope that we find the one or ones responsible for this and that justice is served, until then I will keep #RunningForBoston.
