~*The New Love in My Life*~

I've been rather quiet on the bloggy front and that is simply because I have lost my blogging mojo. In other areas of my life I am finding new inspirations!

Last summer I discovered Bobbi Marie McCormick and completed several of her monthly Shred's. We went camping in August and when I got back I just never really got back into the workouts. In January I kicked myself for walking away from what was a good match for me. The workouts were working and I enjoyed them.

I restarted the Shreds in Feb. and have consistently been working through them. I added running back in a few weeks ago and signed up for a 5K race. Dude, it was the COOKIE 5K! I was SOOO there! 

Through all the setbacks, frustrations, tight and sore muscles I am learning something about myself. 

I love to sweat and like to talk about my workouts in detail with my tribe of people that really don't care for the details! ~wink~ Sweat is not an appealing thing for them to talk about!

I love being outside and am noticing that some of my children will only be outside for an extended period of time unless I am out there, too.

I signed Sunshine up for the 5K, also, when he expressed an interest. He struggled a bit during our runs leading up to the race and I was concerned he wouldn't be able to to it. 


When it came time to go, though, he totally ROCKED that race! We are not able to run the whole 3.1 miles, heck we aren't even up to a solid mile yet, but he was positive the whole time and really enjoyed our time together!
 
Early morning and nervous about our first race!

Waiting for the start!
 
Happy to be back home!


Sweaty victory!

Which cookie to pick??


We're looking forward to doing another one together!
Have you ever run a 5K, 10K, Half or Full Marathon...or an Iron Man?

I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.
