2013 was a GREAT year and from this point on, it only gets BETTER!!!

2013 I doubled up on my half marathon completions with a grand total of TWO for the year completed within a month of each other. I became an ambassador for the Oklahoma chapter of Black Girls Run and along with my awesome co-amBADASSadors have plans to make a big impact on the health and wellness movement in communities of color!
I have made progress on my upper body and started to see some changes in muscle definition. For 2014 I want to continue progressing my running times and distances as well as build strength in both my upper and lower body. Looking to join the half fanatics this fall!

2012 was my most active year ever! I completed my very first 1/2 marathon, the Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon, in 2.5 hours, completed two obstacle 5k runs (zombies & mud oh my), completed 2 10ks, the remember the 10 run in Stillwater, OK and the Crescent City Classic in NOLA (5th time), and two 5k night glow runs. For 2013, I'm setting out to increase the number of events and decrease my finish times for those events. I'm SO PUMPED!!!

My Goals:
Trying to set realistic goals is tough, lol! Finding that balance between pushing yourself to the max and surpassing your capabilities within reason is rather tricky. So for now I'll keep it rather simple and set a couple of 3 month goals.

1. Decrease my body fat percentage by 2 (current is 27 :-()

2. Decrease my 10k time to 50 minutes (hopefully I can make sub 50 by April 19th)

Update will be posted in March.

My Program:
Following the BGR half marathon training guide with strength training exercises from the Spartan Wods and Mankofit challenge.

Yoga and stretching at least 30 minutes at least 2 days per week.

Mandatory Rest 1 day per week.

Only beverages are water, almond milk or fresh fruit purees (watermelon, yum!)

Leaving the dairy behind.
Getting at least 8 glasses of water per day.
No added sodium.
Loading up on veggies through basic broth based soup, stir fries, and salads. #backtobasics
