just for the bling of it


hey! who stopped following me? i went down to 49…oh well, it gives me time to think of an awesome giveaway! 🙂

so, just joined this awesome challenge run for the bling of it.

i heard about people doing this last year and thought it would be cool to try in 2011, when i found out about this challenge i just couldn’t pass it!

my first race will be january 30th, the aramco houston half marathon! it came to my attention that i only have 3 weeks left to train! yikes! good thing i started bingham’s 100 day challenge 🙂 they gave a sneak peak of the medal today, featured above 🙂 do you love it? i do!

thank you letter no.6: i wrote this letter to a person i recently met last year running a race who was a part of another TNT running group, stacey. she constantly posts positive messages on facebook bright and early in the morning. she REALLY makes my day. some people post negative stuff and its such a breath of fresh air getting her take on the morning, puts me in a good mood. one morning i found myself asking, ‘how would stacey turn this negative situation into a positive one? 🙂

day 6 of 100: went running w/some favorite girlfriends, 3.9 miles. funny how i have a half marathon in just 3 weeks and that is the highest mileage i have reached! i don’t have a time for you because i forgot my watch
it was a fun run w/the gals! afterwards we worked on our running capes! yes, we are going to do our monthly pub run tomorrow and our theme is super heroes! stayed tuned, tomorrow i will post pics of the fab event!

my first DNF


50 followers? yay! welcome to my blog, as i promised i will be hosting a giveaway since we reached 50! any ideas, anything you would like to see given away?

thank you letter no.5: “dear cafeteria, thank you for going up in prices by nearly 40% and having a $5.00 minimum to use my debit card resulting in making myself breakfast on a daily basis.” i don’t think this is what kralik had in mind, but i truly am grateful. my spinach & feta omelet rocked! now, i didn’t send the letter for fear that it might offend someone, but i did post on facebook so that makes it legit 🙂

day 5 of 100: 5k (DNF), yes i really did just give myself a DNF (did not finish)-my first ever! i attempted a 5k, but really did not feel the run. maybe it was the different route, maybe it was the tourist that were on the different route, maybe it was knowing i had to be at a meeting right after……maybe i was just too damn tired! whatever the case may be it just was not a good run and i use the term ‘run’ loosely. i ended up walking a whole lot! i may not have completed my race, but i did meet the requirements of bingham’s 100 day challenge of 30 minutes of movement! 🙂 so i am not a complete failure 🙂
