As most of you know, I hosted a virtual 5k fun run/walk last month. It was a smashing success in my eyes and I look forward to hosting another one! These virtual races give my pocket book a break while keeping me motivated and accountable. It also allows me to run with bloggy friends I never would have run with otherwise! Quite entertaining and NEVER a dull moment. This 5k wasn’t just a 5k though…participants could do WHATEVER they wanted movement wise for HOWEVER long they wanted. If they wanted to do a 5k they did a 5k. If they wanted to play Frisbee with the kids, they played with the kids. “Kudos” goes out to the following participants (with links to their blogs (or blog post regarding their 5k)-check em out) for helping to make this event a success: Marlene (Mom to the Fourth) Deb (Weight loss and God Whispers); Suzanne (Cows and Everything in Between); Joy (Nuggets of Truth) ; Karen (Life with Karen); and Holly (300 pounds down)
In other news, I’ve started taking vitamins again and kicked it into motivation gear for upcoming running events. I have 52 days until my half marathon. Nuff said right! The vitamins seem to have “made it into” myself because I feel a lil more energetic and my bones aren’t so achy. I’ve also done “extracurricular” activities (movement above my normal day to day walking the dogs) three days in a row (walk 4.02 Sat; walk jog 5.43 Sun; Cycled 7.1 today). I have “official” 5ks scheduled for March 24 and April 14th. I’m feeling confident about it “all” because I’m switching things up to loosen and strength my legs and lungs. Now to stop filling my pie hole with crap! Thankfully we are almost out of cookies at home (and I did NOT buy any girl scout cookies).
Have a great week everyone! By the way..does anyone have any experience with peri/pre menapause? Any herbal remedies? suggestions?
