Whew…is it just me or did it take light-years for Friday to get here? The good news is that it’s finally here and week one of the “Get Wedding & SF Half Ready” is well on its way. I’ve been pretty heads-down in work and wedding planning, but here’s a look at the little things that made this week fabulous.
Thanks to some inspiration from Aron, I finally completed my marathon and half-marathon bib frame! I have a couple separate frames for the big marathons that will hang on the side, but hey, one step at a time people.
I’ve said it before, but I just want to reiterate how madly in love I am with the free Nike Training Club iPhone app. Seriously, Chicken Face has some competition I love it that much. I started using it again to help prepare for the big day and I can honestly say that I did more squats and lunges in one workout than I did training for Boston. Ok, ok, I’ll spare you my ode to NTC, but you can check out my earlier review of the app here.
This is a horrible photo, but HEY, look who started joining me at the gym! He wasn’t very happy when I tried to snap his photo as I was in mid-crunch.
Trying too eke out three, horrible, measly push-ups (no girl style allowed!) with Chicken Face laughing at me may be embarrassing, but I’m determined to show my noodle arms who’s boss!
This photo probably won’t mean much to you guys, but my aunt posted this on her Facebook page the other day and I immediately had to steal it. It’s a photo of my mom and her family when she was in her teenage years (maybe in the 60s or 70s; I’m not sure). It stopped me in my tracks because here I am, going about my life focusing on my goals, running and my career, but rarely do I genuinely stop and really look back at my family and how we all came together. This photo now holds a special place in my heart as my grandparents passed away at a very young age and I’ve never seen a photo with the entire family together. If anything, go find a photo of your parents’ families. Post it, keep it private, or just look at it. Whatever you do, it’s a welcome hint into our parents’ yesteryears.
