Hello Hip Huggers!!

Ok, so the 2 weeks I REALLY needed to be keeping up

 with blogging I didn’t. Now, I’m Fire in the Hole

Quick Fitness Recap!

I finished my month long running of miles!

Which might I add, didn’t start until approximately

2 weeks before the month ended, not too shabby.

I am at 34 of 85 goal miles I plan on running this month! Awesomeness!!!

I’ve been practicing yoga too, but not as much as before.

I really do throw myself completely and unapologetically into whatever

my heart desires… but, I am a balanced broad so, my goal is to find the middle ground..

which has been post running quick yoga outside on the ground as of late.

I will say the highlight of my running career gig so far has been

running the Flagpole 8k on Independence Day.

I have ran the Flagpole 8k once before and loooved the route!

It is at White Rock Lake and the run starts out on the

 “boardwalk” and leads into a higher altitude trail … awesome right?

Buuut, this year it was at Flagpole Hill. Just down the street.

None of the beautiful amenities of running the lake, sadly.

 Not the busling walkers and morning joggers.

Not the beautiful lake view and sounds.

But,  it was flat, and it looped around just once.

 That must  be a  huge advantage for someone like me because…

I placed 1st in my age group!!!

In all honesty fairness, I will say, it was a small race.

Even with that, placing was never my goal, not even a thought.

Easily less than 100 people, but who cares? either way,

of the far and few that are embracing their early dirty 30’s such as I am trying to,

I was the one to beat!

And this, I will treasure.

In other running new, I decided to run a half marathon!

‘ That Dam Half’ in Lewisville October 19.

 Training for that doesn’t begin until the end of the month,

 so I am just keeping things injury free and nimble for now.

I will be doing all the necessary speedwork and tempo runs.

Really going to stick to this plan and try to have a great race!

And a great day, as it is Bring-your-girls-to-visit-dad-and-have-Chili’s-with-dad Day!
