so there i am in all my sweaty self,lol.i didn´t have a camera at the race.zakariya was suppose to come with camera to take a photo of me finishing but he forgot lol.that stuff cuff you see in the second photo is actually fantastic i will be using it every time i go nordic walking so i wont need a coat or bag on hot days.i had my pedometer a pack of tissues and my handy.there was alot of stress leading up to the race re my sil and babysitting etc but wont go into it.
earlier last week i brought a spiraliser as it was on sale i did some raw zucchini and carrot noodles with a lentil and mushroom sauce .it was scrummy.through the kids wanted normal noodles.at least they ate the lentil sauce.i still wont give up though.
anyway i am tired so will close now according to my pedometer with the coming and going to the colour run and the run itself i have walked 17.2 km and burnt up 1,899 calories.shame it is not our day for H2H for my blc team.i raked the steps today.
anyway take care and keep smiling.why is it that photos make you look fatter than you actually are,lol
p.s-forgot to say there was 600-800 behind me.left early so didn´t see them all get in.my sil had to go so i had to come straight home after i finished my race.no after party for me.
I'm so proud of you!!!! You have come so far with so many things!! How fun. Glad you got a picture anyway. So sorry you couldn't celebrate after. Competing always makes me nervous. 1591 days ago
Karen you are FANTASTIC, you inspire me every week to keep moving forward. I am glad the stress factors did not stop you - BE PROUD xxx
ps I love the photos - don't know what you mean about not being happy with them - they are a fantastic reminder of the struggle to get there and the success of finishing xx
As to the spiralizer I know I have already shared how jealous I am you have it - wondering if to keep the kids healthy but happier lightly sauteing the "veggie noodles" or a little steaming may warm them up and soften them a little more like their noodle preference? 1597 days ago
LJCANNON Congratulations on the Color Run!! I've done that a couple of times and it was FABULOUS Fun!! I bought one of the Spiraled but have not been brave enough to try it yet. Will have to do it soon!! I think the Zucchini Noodles would be AWESOME! ! 1598 days ago
Karen, I am SO happy you did the color run and I really really like the pics... before and after... I am bummed for you that you did not get to go to the after party... maybe I will ask our videographer of our MB Diva after party dance to send that to you and you can dance along!!! i didn't know the steps but i did it anyway... and i have NEVER danced in public like that!!!!
I really LOVE that you went!!!
oh, when you have rested up... I would like the recipe for the dressing you made for the spiralized veggies and also any tips you might have on doing a color run...
