Before I start rambling, I better announce the giveaway winner.
Congrats Kaila! Email me your mailing information and I’ll send it along.
Let’s see, workouts first.
Taught a few classes yesterday (spin, HIIT and step) which left me pretty exhausted by the end of the night. My last class was step.
Yep, people still do it and yep, I plan my combos in the car on the drive to the gym and then have about 2 minutes to test them out before class and make sure they’re going to work. I’m that instructor. Sometimes it all goes well, sometimes it doesn’t. Ha.
This morning I got on the treadmill early. I had a pretty awesome movie picked out to watch.
I can’t believe I’d never seen Spirit of the Marathon before. Talk about inspiration. Definitely had goose bumps and tears more than once. And look who it is, my friend Deena Kastor was on it. I didn’t even know. She was injured here and running on this pool treadmill thing with running shoes and everything. Never seen something like that before.
And now I’m adding the Chicago Marathon to my bucket list.
The movie talks about the magnificence of the marathon. How once you finish a marathon and overcome the obstacles of the race and the training you’ve endured, you’re a better person and can tackle anything.
Seriously, just freaking awesome.
I fit in 12 easy pace miles while watching.
Legs were super tight today. Run was super sweaty today.
Some treadmill cleaning and foam rolling were in order immediately afterwards.
Some eating as of late.
Yesterday for lunch I made a random mix of chilled roasted spaghetti squash with PB2, sriricha, Chinese spice seasoning, crushed red pepper and coconut aminos with salmon. I didn’t measure anything, but threw them all together and it turned out pretty darn awesome.
I had it with this brown rice California Roll from Trader Joe’s.
First time ever having sushi from Trader Joe’s, but it was pretty good.
Got home late. Was picking basil outside and noticed the awesome moon.
I guess yesterday it was a Blood Moon. I didn’t catch it, but did anyone see it?
I’m liking Arctic Zero more and more. Not sure if that’s a good or bad thing. Ha.
This morning I just had a two course breakfast.
A typical egg white scramble with chicken apple sausage and spinach.
Guess I was hungry.
Today is the one year anniversary of the bombings at the Boston Marathon last year. There’s a lot going on in the social media world for #bostonstrong.
So crazy to think about what happened a year ago. My heart goes out to all those who’s lives were changed forever and who lost loved ones.
Yet, how awesome is it to see everyone coming together to show support and love.
We sure are one heck of a strong bunch.
You probably already know, but there’s a moment of silence planned for 2:49 pm EST today. Thought I should pass that along.
Okay, I’m off. Have a wonderful day.
I’m going to finally look through my welcome packet for Boston (I can’t believe I just opened it right now)
and the boys have big plans to hang with our cousins that are visiting all afternoon.
Should be a blast.
What’s your favorite running inspired movie?
Are you or anyone in your community doing anything for #BostonStrong today?
Where were you last year when it happened?
