Trying to live a healthier lifestyle; a more active lifestyle.

Oh, and Randy’s going to Disney World!!! A little trip scheduled for early next year, and I’m not running any races that weekend! Can. Not. Wait!

Hi Tumblr friends, I’m still alive and kickin’ (see what I did there). I haven’t been on much in the last couple months. That is probably because I haven’t really been active or running. So I’ll do an update coffee date bullet point style.

  • First I’ll start with my most recent weekend and 5k since my last post mentioned it and the goal time I wanted. Didn’t quite make my goal of under 29 though. It was a great weekend with wonderful friends. 
  • Went to a great wedding a couple weeks ago for two great people and partied beforehand.

  • Celebrated a few birthdays with dinner at Texas Roadhouse one Friday night (Randy’s, Mom’s and mine!). Then celebrated Randy’s and my birthday with friends the following day with lunch at Greenmill, then dinner with his parent’s that same night. It was a great birthday weekend!
  • Went bow hunting for the first time and was unsuccessful. But I did get to see 6 deer in one night, my new record for the most amount of deer I’ve seen in one sitting. Can’t wait to get out there again in a couple weeks. Hopefully with more success.
  • With it being October, Party City gets really busy with the Halloween season so I’ve been busy working weekends and nights. 
  • And finally tonight is senior night for my niece’s school’s football team and cheerleaders, so she will be recognized at the game as a senior. I can’t believe she’s a senior! It’s also pink out night which explains the bright pink sweatshirt and nails in my coffee date photo.

I hope to do a better job going forward of posting more. This blog really helped me in the beginning to stay focused on fitness and I’ve lost that somewhere along the way. 

Have a great day!

And I’m back at it. I haven’t run since August 31st. Not too shabby for not running for 3 weeks and still getting over a bad cold.

My next race is a small one. A 5k at Fitger’s brewery. My goal is to be under 29 min. Just have to get back into running in a regular basis.

What? Oh, there’s an error message on the copier?

Why don’t you READ it and figure it out. Pretty sure EVERYONE is capable of filling the empty paper trays.

On a completely unrelated note, I still have to write something about my most recent Half Marathon. Work has been busy, both jobs. I will get to it.

Went on a little run this morning. Will make a better post about it later.

I have three full days until I leave for my next half marathon! I’m totally not ready distance-wise. My running partner has been killing it with getting miles in. Go Jim! It is totally alright for him to leave me in his dust. I know I should have gone for a run last night, but after a massage I was just too not into doing anything. Work tonight, so I’ll have to go for a run tomorrow night. I guess I should pack extra running clothes to go for a run before the actual RUN.

But what I’m most excited about is getting to go to Disneyland! A little nervous going through such a major airport. I know, I’ll be just fine.

7 mile run - 8/18/14

Surprisingly, it did not feel this warm.

I tried to keep it slow in order to make it through the distance. My times were pretty good considering I took a few (several) walking breaks.

Silly me, I kinda want to go out for another run tonight. Too bad I have to work.
