Had an amazing trip to Glacier National Park, hiking The Grinnell, Teton National Park and Jackson Hole. Could not have imagined a better vacation!
Beachbody has arrived. Yeah. Super excited to try the new cafe latte shakeology and my new workout video. PiYO is supposed to be a great workout without the strain on my knees. After running the two Races back to back, they haven't been up to many squats. So I am hopeful this will be the solution! Excited to start in the morning. Details to follow!!
Prime outlet mall... I love the Nike Outlet. I bought all this for under $100. Seriously my favorite running shorts. I bought each color because I love them so much. Can't wait to start running again. Officially 3 months until my Nashville 1/2 and less then that fit the TarHeel 10 Miler. Ready to start building up my miles!
then we went to the Dorothy Lane Market and they had like 8 different choices of this stuff. I was super excited because this is so delicious. Excited to try the new flavors.
Oh so... I'm trying to do meal prep and eat better when I'm at work. That cafe food is so bad... Ok it's super yummy but seriously bad and greasy. So I have decided to meal prep. Today is day one of doing this!! I made lemon pepper chicken and green beans and quinoa! Looks good. We shall see tomorrow!
I made these yummy protein balls too.
Today was awesome. We ran 4 miles and finalized with stairs x10. Oh yeah. We were feeling the burn. Our friend Nicky joined us. It's so much better to workout with friends.
Then big sis and I went shopping. DLM had a wine tasting going on... How much fun to shop and have a nice glass of wine. Love this store 😉.
Ok soooo this was a good race! We all finished and no injuries so that a plus! I do have a couple huge blisters. Yikes. Think it was my socks. Awe maan! My friend Ariel was running her 1st half ever so I ran with her and it was awesome. Big sis went up aheadf us and finished 98 out of 2632! I finished 284 of 2632. That's with running my slowest half ever! Which is fine since I wasn't running this for speed. The experience was awesome to share with my people experiencing their 1sts ever. Awesome! It's crazy the emotion that fills you when seeing that finish line. I always feel like crying. Strange huh! But I love that feeling of knowing. Hey I rocked this. It's almost done! Yeah baby yeah!
The runners poem:
It was the night before her race, when all through the house she searched around to find her favorite outfits including the fanny pouch. The clothing was arranged by the dresser with care, in hopes that her PR would soon be there! I in my nighty and hubby in boxers asleep in the bed, while miles upon miles raced through her head. Ok that's all I have for now. I will finish this poem later! lol
Time for bed... Gotta catch that beauty sleep before this hydrated bladder awakens me!
Updates tomorrow! Wish us all luck.
We went to O'Conners for a Fish n Chips. Not too shabby but kinda greasy. Dublin Pub has the best fish n chips... I'm on this new kick for it because all these years I've been afraid to eat it since I'm allergic to shellfish. I just never tried fish but a few months ago I tried it! It's delicious and no allergy. Bonus!
Only 4 more days until race day! Super excited. We did 8 miles today. Think I'll do 4 tomorrow then no more until race day.
