COLOR RUN!!!! Here we go....It’s been a rough road, recovering from surgery and rebuilding my pelvic floor and hip/core strength, but that paid off when I earned this GROOVY medal!!Took my girls in for their annual vet visit...they’re both hovering at about 15.5 pounds, so will need to lose 3-ish pounds at least. Looks like we’ll all be watching what we eat together!Happy holidays!In it to win it!! And by win it I mean lose it.... So excited to be a Spirited UnderDawg again!Facebook memory, hiking near San Francisco 8 years ago. I want to be this fit again...Yesterday was the 6-year anniversary of my first half marathon! It’s hard sometimes to accept that I’m not in the same shape, and focus on improving from where I am today. One run at a time, right?Someone wanted to help me deep clean the fridge....This really touched me! The last few months have been hard. It’s easy to be weighted down by the terrible things happening around the world. But it’s not a reason to give up on yourself. Today I ran more than 4 miles! First time I’ve run more than 4 miles since the 2017 New Year’s Day Dash!! Finally feel how much progress I’m making!!I finished the Race Across Wisconsin today - very excited to have accomplished this goal, even if it wasn’t they race experience I had originally wanted for this year.Check out my certificate!! I should have a medal mailed to me for finishing this running challenge, but this sweet certificate shows that I actually did it!!My medal arrived today! And of course two seconds after I spread it out for a pic, both cats started fighting over who got the ribbon. Haha, they’re such brats!!is celebrating International Cat Day by cuddling these two lovely ladies! Or trying to...I think they know they’re going to the vet tomorrow, I shouldn’t have pulled out the carriers so early!Today should have been my mom’s 57th birthday. I keep thinking about how you can’t wait. You can’t put off prioritizing your health. And I’m doing over a huge takeout meal...after skipping my run.6 miles!! First time since I ran the Madison half, almost exactly 4 years ago today. I'm slower than 90s internet - needed a few walk breaks - but I did it! Plus a 0.4 mile cooldown...Wishing for warmer weather and more time to paddle!Finally had to accept the cold weather and run on the treadmill. Overall time was a lot better...but I pooped out earlier than I wanted to. Still...I got in a run, that’s what matters!I managed my 7-mile run yesterday - but it was painful. I really need to focus more on strength training and stretching!Is so grateful that my mom was able to come with me on my National Park tour out to Portland. That was such critical time to bond, mend fences, and lay childhood hurts to rest.Went home to see Mom this weekend. Amazing sunset during my lakeshore walk tonight!Today’s reminder...since my last injury, I’ve felt very fragile and afraid of re-injury! Time to leave the fear behind and focus on how good it feels to work up a good sweat!!Not your typical before and after! Looking at me before and after grad school, you can see that I let unhealthy habits take over.Apparently Savina does not want me to weigh in today! This is what I call kitten obstruction! 😁Results of my follow-up: my foot is not healing properly. Now I'm in a walking boot for 4-6 weeks, and on complete rest - I've even been told not to ST, because I'd brace with my feet.
