Well, I didn’t make it to my race on Saturday. I had a huge blister on my heel and it hurt even to walk…plus by the time I stepped out the door to go to the race at 8:30 it was 95 degrees and 100% humidity. The race didn’t start until 9:30 and there was just no WAY I was going to max myself out. I have a race this coming Saturday that is WAY more important and all my friends will be there so I figured I’d be better off not pushing myself in that kind of setting.

So I did a lot of walking (In non-running/non-blister hurting shoes) Saturday and then Sunday was a rest day.

Today I did lower body and a little ab work. It’s supposed to cool down some this week so that will be nice. Saturday it got up to 101 here…and if no one has noticed, it’s not even SUMMER yet. Insane.

Other fun news for the day is that I’m going to see a nutritionist on Friday!!!! I’m also thinking about getting a personal trainer. I want to see what my body fat percentage is…because last time I had it tested it was high…even though I’m short and small…Also I just need…help. I need someone to get on me and give me a plan.

Also, I’m quitting my Chiropractor. I’m going to go see another one that my friend goes to. Mine just keeps trying to sell me crap and he’s just…not for me. My veiws and beliefs and his don’t really line up…and my friends that go to other chiropractors says this guy sounds like he’s not that great. Basically I dread going and I never feel much different when I leave…apparently most of my friends adore their chiropractor and feel awesome when they get adjusted.

We’ll see.

That’s all for now!!!

Run Club Recap

2 miles with my running club tonight!!!

I’m pretty pleased. I got out there and did my run with the group. I did my first mile with them, then they went on and I headed back. I’m still not capable of running like I used to. It was great to run with a group again though.

I also had a small shopping accident. It’s SO not fair that the run group meets in the running STORE.

Please say hello to my newest running partner.


More glasses.

The lenses are pink. I’m a sucker for pink. But the awesome part is that I have wanted them FOREVER…and they were on sale 50% off. AND then he took more off because they are supposed to have extra lenses in blue and black but they had gotten lost at some point…and this was the last pair…so I paid $50 for $130 sun glasses. SO great.

In other news I’m seeing a chiropractor…and I tend to be a bit skeptical about most things…and I’m just not sure about some stuff. Like he had me put heel inserts into my running shoes because he said they threw me off balance. But these are the shoes I was evaluated by the running expert people for… So I tried the heel inserts. Not a fan. But I don’t know if I NEED them and will get used to them or if it’s just fluff.

I just don’t know.

On my way out of the running store after the run I ran (I think I just used every possible version of “to run”) in to my former co-workers!!! They were stopping in a nearby store and I found out one of them has started running!! She’s slow like me so hopefully we can run together. I invited them to come to the run club runs. Hopefully they will both come sometime soon. The one girl that is running currently said she’s doing the same 5K that I’m doing next weekend!!! She also said some other people I used to work with are doing it so I’m REALLY excited about that one. After I talked to her I called my mom to make sure she could come to that race and be my photographer.

I have a 5K this Saturday as well. I’m not expecting a great performance but I’m going to get out there and do it. Stephen gets to be my photographer for this one.

Anyway, so after run club I came home and had a “dinner” of tomatoes and cheese in a oil and vinegar sauce. I have to share, because it’s yummy and pretty.


See? So pretty.

In other news, last night I did some yoga….and while I was somewhere between lateral angle and triangle I noticed my cat, Paco, doing his own yoga in the background.


He’s such a goof.

Well, that’s it for me. Paco says bye!
