oh, what a summer!

wow! it’s been almost 2 months since my last post; life hasn’t gotten busy! it would take forever to update you, so i will just touch on the highlights! 🙂

summer started off w/a bang! our team went tubing and had a blast!
not only do we work hard, we play hard too!

went on my first trip to NY w/my boyfriend and his old roommate. we had an amazing time! trip began w/lunch at figaro’s; pizza and, of course, beer! the pizza was absolutely delicious! did a little shopping and exploring around times square. next morning a saturday run! that’s right, running while on vacation! (i’m the mexican in the pink skirt)

i intended to run 10 miles (because that’s what my team back home was doing), but i chickened out at 7 miles. didn’t want to exhaust myself, of course! 😉 running w/TNT’s NY chapter was amazing! ran w/some really sweet girls who called me “texas” and they laughted at me when i said “y’all.” they were all great, supportive, welcoming–expected nothing less from fellow TNT’ers!

went to madame tussads & went up the empire state building- the view was breathtaking! we enjoyed the view of the city at night there and the next at top of the rock during the day, both were amazing but i enjoyed the view during the day better. we visited the statue of liberty, ground zero & got to experience a yankee game! it was awesome, the fans are crazy! one yankee fan threw a beer over a redsox fan– i don’t condone any of it, but it made really good entertainment! we did a lot of tours the next day including the nbc studio tour and radio city hall. we went in st patrick’s cathedral-absolutely amazing! we went out and met some “friends” from jersey! they were really sweet and fun! we danced and drank the night away, definitely a night to remember! our last day was spent at the museum of natural history- i really wish we were able to visit more museums, but they were so huge you really need a whole day to visit! i felt like the days were going so fast and we didn’t have time for anything! oh and we also visited central park our last day and got a tour on a pedi-cab. it was a delight! i can’t wait for our next visit there!

my first day back, even though i was still on vacation, that did not mean i was able to sleep in! finally went to see an airrosti doctor for my shin splints that had been hurting me a couple weeks before my trip. it was EXTREMELY painful, but after my last treatment (this past friday) i feel GREAT! that afternoon was spent w/my family, TNT family that is! recommitment dinner! this is where all the participants recommit to finish the training and fundraising for the nike and san antonio marathons! pictured below are: lisa, our honored hero & my reason joining TNT; amy & debbie, my running buddies and fabulous duo; and to my right is carla, my newest running buddy- we actually run the same pace!

and the next day, a fundraiser to support the leukemia & lymphoma society, a bachelorette auction! pictured below are more fellow teamates: kelley, my running buddy (when i can keep up w/her); lisa, a tnt participant and bachelorette; victor, tnt alumni who bought the lovely lisa! oh and that’s me on the left 🙂

always a great night w/TNT! as of right now we are up to 14 miles! (i’m at 12 miles because NY set me back, but i’ll be fine) and i’m back to blogging because i feel this is the only way to hold me accountable! so with that…

saturday: 12 miles
monday: 30 crossramp/1 hour yoga
tonight: 1 hour of plyometrics!

and through it all i managed to maintain my weight of 138. let’s see how many lbs i can lose ’til the end of september!
