Hey guys, lots of things to share with you today! But first let’s announce the winner of the Spartan Race Entry Giveaway–Congrats to GREG P.! Please email me at Shesgoingforspeed@gmail.com.
First and most important, I signed up for the Rock N’ Roll DC 1/2 (March 11th). I can’t quit this race. I ran it so strong last year I want to gun for another course record.
Speaking of records, I can now do 5 chin ups at a time (palms facing in). It’s been a goal forever, i’m slowing making progress! Now about those wide grip pull-ups…
Studying this winter to become a Run-Fit Certified Coach. I’m also taking a USA Weightlifting course in January (Merry Christmas to me). Gotta get them continuing education credits and also, i’m sort of falling in love with Olympic lifting.
And last in the fitness category- the Vazee Rush’s are pretty awesome. Super lightweight and cushioned. I’ve only used them for shorter runs so far. Kinda wish I ran in the dark, since they glow!
Last weekend was spent at the Raycroft Christmas party- if you don’t know them already (they pop up on the blog often) they are basically my unrelated family. They call me their daughter and are all around amazing people. I opted to travel for their annual party this year instead of Christmas weekend, and i’m so happy I did. I got to catch up with a lot of old friends and a lot of good pizza.
Our attempt to start the night as classy as possible, sipping and swirling some Laphroaig and getting a picture with the sword. Cheers! Now onto the fun stuff..
Adam & Trish (brother and sis-in-law) sat at the dessert table and I ate a TON of cookies and brownies.
I’m not joking, i ate a lot of dessert…hence the picture on the right. #holidayguilt
Newly engaged friends: Patrick & Liz
Did you know that Jell-O shots turn your tongue a different color? No, just me then..
