No, not like that. Today is day 38 of my running streak. What originally started out as a 26 day streak in honor of the victims of the Boston Marathon bombing has quickly turned into a way of life for me lately. Since beginning this streak, I have gotten an age group award and PR'd in the half marathon. The moral of the story is that consistency pays off!
We will be leaving next week for our trip to Colorado and Utah and I am planning to continue streaking (the plan is now to streak to my 30th birthday at the end of July) during the trip. Adjusting to the altitude seems like it will be the biggest obstacle but my goal half is on day 9 of our trip so I am hopeful that by then I will be accustomed to the altitude there. One way to find out!
The streak has me adding up miles quickly and on my run yesterday I hit 2000 miles since I started tracking my miles on the Runner's World website on 7/22/09!
I recently got my Yoga Teacher Training finals back and I am proud to say that I aced them! I am still teaching at the boxing gym where I started and have an opportunity to teach at my teacher training studio this summer. Trying to work out other places to teach but so far I am loving it! I feel great while I am teaching and it has been so wonderful to see beginners changing and growing along the way.
We went hiking over the weekend and had beautiful weather! The views were just spectacular. I'm hoping we can go this weekend also.
My dad and his girlfriend are visiting us over the 4th of July so I am really looking forward to it. But the best part is that Wendy, my dad and I signed up for a 5k on the 4th! My dad did a 5k a few years ago but I am thrilled that he's doing this one with us while he's here! How cool! I also got tickets to go to Michigan this summer for my mom's 50th birthday in August! I love seeing my family. As I've gotten older it has become more and more important to me.
Only 5 more work days until we leave for vacation!
Any Memorial Day plans? We've been invited to a barbecue, both teaching yoga and having some runs to do!
