Weekly Race Shout Outs and LOTS of Excuses

Weekly Race Shout-Outs:

Allison is running the Cellcom Green Bay Marathon with myTeamTriumph, an amazing organization that helps people with disabilities participate in endurance events!

Kait (who I just found out is a fellow hypothyroider), is running her marathon in Maine!

Jack is going for a big PR at the Rockford Half! I know he’s going to do amazingly!

Raquel is running the Baker Hughes 10-K in Scotland as a warm-up for her half next week! Lately she’s been making 10-Ks her bitch, so she should do great!

Hyedi is running a 5K with Girls on the Run, another fantastic organization that encourages self confidence and an active lifestyle for girls!

Whitney will be running the Rugged Maniac Mud/obstacle run which looks like it will be a blast if not sanitary!

Good luck to you all! Lots of love and fast thoughts heading your way! 


So, last week I was boring.  This week I haven’t been as boring, but I’ve been crazy busy.  Pretty soon this here blog is going to up and leave me on the grounds of neglect.  And I wouldn’t blame it.

May is turning into the craziest of crazy between graduations, 3 people with birthdays in my immediate family (a BIG 30 for Aaron, and a BIGGER 21 for the twins), vacations, two big work events, Mother’s Day, and trying to squeeze in some runs all while trying to figure out the new iPad (apple newbie here).  And the New York Times Crossword Puzzle is hard (I downloaded the app on my iPad).  My brain is getting a workout trying to think of things in really out of the box ways.  It took me 3 days to finish Tuesday’s puzzle with Aaron’s help and multiple google searches.

I’m actually looking forward to June when life will slow down and I can jump into marathon training.  Is that weird?

But excuses are like….well, you know how that goes…and I will try to be a better multi-tasker next week!

SIDENOTE: If you are in Albuquerque, or even if you aren’t and you would like to come visit me (I’m a fabulous hostess!), and you are wanting to do the Dirty Dash (the muddiest race in the world), use the promo code ADELANTE for 15% off, AND a portion of your registration will go to support people with disabilities in New Mexico! I’m not sure, but this might even work for events in other cities.  Doesn’t it look like fun?

I hope everyone has a lovely weekend!

    • I hope you and the rest of the team have a lot of fun!

      I’ve never done a mud/obstacle run either. This one looks like a blast! I missed our Warrior Dash because of a half marathon, but I’m planning on doing this one!

  1. The Dirty Dash looks great fun! Thanks for the shout out, but this cold is making me its bitch, so may not beast the 10k tomorrow. I will finish it though. 🙂

  2. You’re so amazing and thoughtful. From the shout out to the pre-race tweet, it was great to know lots of fast wishes were being sent my way. Can’t wait to send them back your way once your marathon training starts! You’re going to do awesome as well.
