Yays and boos!!

Thursday, May 31, 2012

Has it really been 2 weeks since I've posted a blog???

So the Portland Rock n Roll 1/2 marathon was great. All four of us finished and I wasn't last. It may happen one of these days, but until then I'm hanging onto it!

The weather was super muggy (ick!) and then rained. The weather pretty much sucked the life out of me, but I wasn't really sore the next day. So there is a win.

It didn't help that I had left my wicking pants at home so I was wearing....wait for it...waaaait for it.....cotton pants!

Not something I recommend!!

So the bad news? Since I've done the last four 1/2 marathons I have managed to gain 15 lbs. WTF???!!???

Saw my doc today and she confirmed my suspicions. I just need to go to a nutritionist. I can follow diet plans, but when I throw in a day of lots of exercise I really need help figuring out what is enough to eat. Besides, it is sooooo easy to say, "Hey, I did a 1/2 marathon....I can eat this bowl of mac & cheese."

I want to have this all figured out soon since the Seattle Rock n Roll half is in a few weeks.

I hope everyone had a great Memorial Day Weekend and thanked those that are in service to us!

Color Run

Monday, May 14, 2012

Do you have one of these near you???

Do. It!!!

I had a great time and all the kids around me were having a blast.

I would actually consider traveling (within reason) to do more of these.

Glad I had the googles, but really you can do fine without them. Really glad I had something to put over my mouth. You might want a bandana or something like one. I used a Buff (check REI) and it worked great.

This is me clean....




This is me not so...



And, yes, not all the color came off. Today you can see where my sunscreen was wiped or sweated off.

But totally worth it!!

I'll post the video I took here soon. Meantime, you can go to the site and see more professional ones.

    I missed doing it in Seattle this year but may go to Portland to do one there in September--everyone says it was SO much fun! Bet you'll keep finding color in different places for a few days.

    I've thought about this race! Looks very fun, but I wonder if all that color dust would trigger my asthma...

Don't delete the pictures!

Friday, April 20, 2012

I got the email with the pictures that the photographers got of me on my 1/2 marathon.

I've been through this before. They usually are emails that I look at, cringe and just delete. I have never bought one.

This time I did.

Someone got a picture of those silly bikers (that wouldn't give me a ride!!) wanting me to slap their hands as I approached the finish line. Wish they had gotten one of me waggling my finger at them.



And there is one of me and the woman that I spent 11 miles walking with.



Are they the best pictures of me?

Nope.

Do both of them show the joy and pride that I was experiencing?

Yep.

That is good enough for me not to delete them.

    Absolutely keep the pictures! They show a woman who is having FUN on a HALF MARATHON--something most people wouldn't dream of doing. We need reminders of who we are and what we accomplished on our journey. I didn't realize you did Whidbey on Sunday, too; wasn't it great weather to be outside? What a gorgeous course!
