The case of writers block

Writers block has got me down.  I don’t know what to post here.  I have lots of things going around in my head but I can’t narrow it down.  Maybe I’m lacking focus…or maybe I just want to share something new with you but I just don’t know what.  It’s about evolution, but I guess I’m still trying to narrow in on who exactly I am. I’ve been taking it easy because I know the next couple of weeks are going to crazy BUT exciting.  Yes, there will be more travel and running posts.

So what’s been going on in my little boring life?

80s day spinning
It was launch week last week at the gym which means I was busy teaching a lot more classes than normal. In my classes, I had a 80s spin day which went over really well. Everyone loved the glow sticks!

Buying lowfat @gotchocolatemilk for my #cycle class. It's a hard workout that needs a good #recovery! The right ratio of carbs to protein to get you moving. #workout #teamchocolatemilk
The next class, we refueled with lowfat chocolate milk and granola bars! That’s what everyone wants to eat after a good 5am workout, right? Lowfat chocolate milk has the right mix of protein and carbs scientifically shown to refuel exhausted muscles and help return to peak potential.  Plus it’s a tasty way to rehydrate and help replenish critical nutrients lost in sweat.  Everyone knows I sweat A LOT!

Sleeping #dogs on a rainy day! #lazy #instadogs #petstagram #rescuedogs #muttstagram
Yesterday was a slow work day so I went home early to play with the dogs. Except we must have gotten our signals mixed up because when I wanted to play, they wanted to sleep and vice versa.  Oh to live the dog life.

And lastly, I got some good stuff in the mail. Let me tell you about it:

Mail goodies
First off, I finally got my NutriNinja. This has been a long time coming but it just popped up on the doorstep last week. I was pleasantly surprised but now I don’t know what to do with it. I think my first Nutri Ninja project is going to make salad dressings that I can share with my wonderful readers.

I won a copy of The Happiness of Pursuit from Kimberly at Manifest Yourself. I was so happy to get it and wanted to read it immediately, but life has gotten in the way. But I just realized I’ll have plenty of time to read it on my flights soon! I will report back on the goodness in the book.

And lastly, I got my Team Inspiration shirt! I am running the Marine Corp Marathon representing Team Inspiration. I am very excited and honor to run for such a great cause. Cancer is something that has struck my family with my mom’s diagnosis 3 years ago. This is my time to honor all those who are beating cancer every day and still challenging themselves through endurance sports. It’s an amazing charity! A big thank you again to everyone who donated to the cause. It did not go unnoticed!

So I guess that is all for right now. What’s the best thing you’ve gotten in the mail lately?

Accomplished the 20 miler

Accomplished the 20 miler

This morning started off very early for me.  It’s the day in every marathon training plan people look at and think…”20 miles is a long way to go without someone cheering you on.”  Well today was my day.  Honestly, I was skeptical about completing all 20 miles in the Texas heat and humidity but I was going to give it a try. I have a couple of marathons coming up and the first one is Revel Rockies Denver.  I’m trying to run myself back into shape. I planned on being out of the door at 4am, but that didn’t happen.…
