GOOD MORNING!! Today feels like it’s going to be a great day! It’s day 13 of the August challenge. I HOPE you are still with me. Please don’t give up!!! This is the time to push through because just around the corner you see the results! I think back to the very first day I started my fitness journey and it feels good to know how
HEY THERE! Ok, I have to start by saying this August challenge is not easy, and I really want to console myself with chocolate. The good news is that I do feel like I’m getting stronger! Let me know how it’s going for you! It’s only August 9th, so if you weren’t able to join day 1….it’s not too late. Here is the daily schedule of
Sorry for the late W2W recap! It’s been such a crazy week. But don’t worry I’m seriously still feeling the rush of finishing Wharf to Wharf!! There was only one really bad thing about it. We (Vin and I) were not able to run it together. Maybe next year. We are 0-2 now. A few colleagues from work signed up for the run, and my
In the August edition of Runners World there is a whole spread on sports bras, with options in a variety of sizes. I can’t find the article online, so I’ll share the “testers favorite” in each category. I can only really give my personal opinion in one category. Best for sizes A/B C9 Champion Enthusiast Racerback Bra – $16.99 –> Available Here at Target I have to say
OK, maybe not a real triathlon, but we did all the stuff! I took a few days off last week, and we packed every minute with fun. We went to the beach one of the days, and it was SOOO windy! About 15 minutes into the sandstorm, we decided to pack up and head to the pool. She isn’t interested in getting close to the
Just a couple of great things from today! I went for a 7 mile run at lunch and passed these three without them knowing. That’s Maka 1 (Grandma) at the top of the slide, Maka 2 (Grandpa) holding the diaper bag and there is Isla going down the slide. We celebrated Maka 2’s birthday tonight at Tramonti in Santa Cruz. If you haven’t been, it’s
I apologize in advance, this is going to be a quick post! I’ve been trying to recover from a horrible cold. I REALLY want to get through my workout plans for the week, so I’m hitting the pillow EXTRA early tonight. But not before I share one picture from yesterday and share some workouts for the week. We carried on with our 4th of July
The fourth continued…. When I was a kid I remember going to my Aunt’s house every 4th, and doing sparklers out on the deck before the fireworks would start. I remember having such a blast! I hope we can create the same good memories for Isla as the years go by. I think we did pretty good this year. She seemed to party her little
Happy 4th of July!! The 4th may get two posts. We have a couple of events ahead of us, but thought I would try to sneak a post in during nap time. I love the 4th of July, and I’m so thankful for the people who continually fight to keep us free. I started the 4th of July celebrations by running the Firecracker 10k in Santa
So much to talk about! I’m not sure if you can relate, but this has kinda been the theme of the last two weeks. We ended up getting about 3 of these books before Isla was born, so I’m pretty sure a lot of you are familiar. Sometimes Isla pulls this book out, and I have to do the censored version. I’ll have to put
These girls tried our best to give Daddy a great weekend. Friday night we took him to Shadowbrook in Capitola. I haven’t been there for years….It’s still super delicious! You do kind of end up in the basement when you have a toddler, but we still enjoyed it. I think we broke most of the wardrobe rules listed. No Caps. No Tank Tops.
Quote of the Day “To give anything less than your best is to sacrifice the gift.” – Steve Prefontaine (posted on the Garmin Instagram today) Skateboard workouts OH YEA….SOME OF THESE MOVES WILL BE PART OF MY GARAGE WORKOUTS NEXT WEEK!!! Start getting ready! Friday Miles I got my Friday lunch run in! Yippee!! 7.3 miles at an average pace of 7:56. This –>
I wasn’t able to run last night until 8, and as I was heading out Vin said to me “you’re going right now??!” It’s the only chance I have during the day so it’s then or never (still saving for that treadmill). Is it hard to get motivated at that time of night? Heck yea!! Especially since my human alarm clark went off at 5 AM yesterday
I have to do my Tahoe recap in at least two posts because there is so much to talk about. It’s such a great weekend to get a group of friends together. Each Lake Tahoe Relay team consists of 7 members who each take turns running 72 miles around Lake Tahoe. I feel like you get to experience Lake Tahoe like you wouldn’t normally get to.
This Ginger Beer is SOOO good. Warning: You may want to drink more than one. I found a reason to like Frozen! If you promise Elsa hair, your 18 month old may sit long enough for two french braids. Warning: She may also walk around saying “Elsa” all day. (Pic is a little blurry because once the braids were in she didn’t sit still long
