Well hello friends.
Want to hear about my genius move from yesterday?
OK. Fine. Twist my T. rex arm.
I was at the Y last night after teaching 4 classes in a row and was chatting with a friend afterwards showing her what burpees were and someone asked if I was supposed to sub the class down the hall because there wasn’t an instructor there.
Why, yes, yes I was supposed to be teaching that class and totally forgot about it. I’m such a winner sometimes.
I hustled my tush in there and gave them a hard strength training workout to make up for it. I’m sure they’re really loving my this fine morning.
I won’t go through all my classes I taught yesterday, but I will tell you after that long run Sunday and a full day teaching yesterday I’ve been sporting my compression socks and applying some serious BioFreeze the past 12 hours.
And gosh darn it, my stinking night time “office hours”
(that looked a little something like this)
went way too late last night trying to figure out travel plans for the San Francisco Marathon. Friends, I don’t know if we’re going to make it. I’m trying to use all our reward points, but San Fran is one heck of an expensive place. Eeek….
I think we can pull it off, but will it be worth it?
Darn it. I’m so confused. Do we go for it? I can’t pass up an opportunity to run a marathon for free can I?
If you’ve got some advice I’ll take it.
Maybe we can do some trading.
I’ll trade you some cookies and cream protein dough for a couple hours of sleep and some advice.
(Note- The recipe on the original post has been edited. I didn’t have the correct amount of oats. Thank you Tracey for finding that.)
Now that’s one heck of a deal, isn’t it?
If only I could find a sponsor…
Speaking of trading, the first day of the IDEA World Fitness Conference I traded in going to the opening ceremonies to politely let myself into the fancy schmancy Marriott gym.
I decided to go for a little treadmill run while I had a chunk of time between sessions.
Then I hung out in the nice Marriott locker room for at least 20 minutes attempting to look presentable so I could try to make some new friends at the expo.
This was the best I could do.
Oh yeah, I filed my nails while I was in there too. Classy.
We had to wait a bit for the expo to open so I of course took advantage to take some pictures of my sweaty face.
My new friend (pictured above) offered to take my picture for me. What a guy. I didn’t even have to ask.
Oh and that’s my Flatout wrap snack I shoveled in my mouth in less than 20 seconds with Smart Balance Light, a Splenda packet and some cinnamon. It was juts enough to tide me over until I could get my hands on some free samples. Ha ha.
I didn’t get very far inside the expo when I realized everyone else was cute and clean and I was pretty disgusting.
Then I saw these.
The cutest Lorna Jane workout clothes ever.
Lorna was there too. I chatted her up of course and she was so nice and fun. I fell in love with her clothes. Since my outfit was already way too sweaty to be wearing around and trying to impress people and I conveniently forgot a change of clothes, I decided I needed a new one (so I could try to be cute like Lorna).
Um yeah. I hightailed it to the bathroom pretty darn quickly for a wardrobe change.
And why yes, I was totally that girl who went back to show off my new outfit and take a picture with Lorna Jane herself.
How cute is she?
And how cute are her clothes?
Since we’re talking fitness gear and running and all……
Here’s the big trade.
Instead of boring you with more IDEA dumps and workout talk at the moment,
I’m going to trade you my babbling for another chance to win an invite into The Mezamashii Run Project.
Holy smokes friends.
We’ve got to act fast though because the invitation expires on July 15th.
Yes, I LOVE my Mizunos.
All of them.
You’ve seen that before, but it’s a heart for love.
I know you want some #brilliantrun fun in your future.
I really hope The San Francisco Marathon will be one of mine in a couple weeks.
