As I reflect on the past week, I can’t help but feel grateful and full of joy. So much has happened which is making me feel very optimistic about the future. You guys came out to my very first classes as Chocolate & Sanity and provided some great positive feedback. I seriously can’t wait to see where this journey will go, the women I will meet, the community that can be made and the lives that can be changed.
Have you ever wanted to wander into the land of the crazies and run a half marathon? Running long distance can sometimes come with unexpected situations. I’ve compiled a list of the 13.1 things no one tells you about running a half marathon.
As I started out Sunday morning I was still a bit dizzy and not 100% myself (read more about that ). I figured I would run anyways, what the hell; I’ve trained to hard to give up now. The worse that happens is I don’t finish. The weather was perfect and the excitement was in the air. Everywhere you looked people where smiling and giddy to get started.
Howdy Folks! It’s been a rough few days for me since I’ve been fight off a flu bug. I thought I was better on Monday but it hit me again yesterday. With race day just around the corner I’m a bit nervous I won’t recover in time. I’m just going take it one day at a time and really, I still have 4 days
I’ve sat down at the computer numerous times in the last couple of days to put into words my experience at the Prairie Love Festival but honestly there are no words. I left the festival on Sunday evening feeling beyond inspired. Inspired to be better, better at being a mom, better at being myself, better at chasing my real goals. It’s hard to pinpoint the moment that made me feel different, it was a combination of little things that came together to make magic.
As promised in Friday’s post (here) I have a few highlights from my two son’s birthday party this past weekend. The weather couldn’t have been more perfect for an outdoor party! With the temperatures going into the mid 30’s, we decided to set up two kiddie pools and the slip n’ slide to keep the kids cool. We had a total of 12 kids running around pretending to be ninjas and it was totally awesome. Here are a few pictures of the Ninjago party.
Have you ever done a destination half marathon or dreamt about doing one? I was registered to run Seawheeze this year with one of my best friends but unfortunately I was unable to attend. I’m was super bummed but it is now on my bucket list to do one day and the reasons below make me want to do it even more. Sara was nice enough to put together at great list of why SeaWheeze is the race to run. She has run 13 half marathons and 2 of the 4 Lululemon SeaWheezes.
