I finally purchased my Livestrong HM photo -- yes, I waited almost 4 months -- but got 20% off. Next time I'll try to remember to take the jacket off first!
Above is part of my HM training group -- there's people who are training for marathons, too. I'm the one in the yellow hat. If you want to find your photos in a big race, wear a bright hat!
I must say I was pleasantly surprised by this photo. Sitting down photos never look good.
My reward shoes. They're not as comfortable as every reviewer claimed -- not torture devices, but the arch could've been a bit less steep. But in the end they only cost me $35, they'll go with a ton of my clothes . . . I think they're keepers.
Excuse the hair. This is what happens when I run & wear hats. It's unfortunate I run 4 days a week but I don't shower every day.
I swear I was just going to Kohls to return something (which I did), but I had time to kill before an appointment and fell in love with these gold pants. They're really comfortable. JLo brand -- runs really big; they're a size 4 & I'm so not a size 4. They're supposed to be capris, which just means I don't have to shorten them!
The book on getting sexy arms had the advice to put your hands in your back pants pockets to take good photos (or just on your butt if you don't have pockets). Seems to work. Not real happy with my arms, but I haven't been able to work them much in so long -- my elbow started bothering me again. Not as bad; not quite sure why -- my last workout with weights was on Monday. Wednesday I did some yoga -- mostly lower body yoga, but there were some downward dogs in there.
I really, really want to do ST -- I can see & feel my body needs it -- but I also know the elbow needs rest again. The good news is that while I'm on vacation it'll get a rest from all the repetitive things I do: scoop litter, load & empty the dishwasher, take out the trash, walk the dogs, etc. etc.
