LOVE Winner, Running With Pro Friends and Thoughts From the RnRSD Expo

 

Hello!

2015-05-28 07.23.48-1

We’ve been starting our mornings off with Super Oats and Power O’s so I thought I should share that the winner of the Love Grown Foods giveaway is  #13 Casey L.

Congrats! Email me your mailing info and I’ll send it along to the LOVE pad. But….. there’s one condition, you have to sign up for a tri and face that fear. Just kidding, but I think you should.

In other random news, somehow I sweet talked these two awesome gals to take my spin class Thursday night.

We even did a little Jacob’s Ladder tutorial afterwards. It was a blast.

The meatza pizza has returned to the dinner rotation with all it’s awesomeness.

Turkey burgers from Costco work brilliantly if you want to make it extra easy.

I got this light Champagne Vinaigrette salad dressing from Trader Joe’s and it’s really good.

I’m not totally sure how you feel, but in my opinion there is never enough fresh basil.

Ha ha.

 

After a very eventful early morning around here

2015-05-30 07.25.11-1

the boys and I headed out for a little Pro Compression shake out run down along Mission Bay.

Yep, that’s Andrea Barber (Kimmy Gibler from Full House, who by the way is one of the nicest people ever) and yep, this is what I was doing to get this picture.

The boys came along with their bikes. I don’t know where I dropped the ball on the communication, but Joaquin thought it was a race for some reason. He was in it to win it and left us in the dust.

Judah kept me company at the back of the pack because he knew it was just for fun.

2015-05-30 09.58.31

I got to meet a few people that I’ve know forever through social media and have traveled from race to race with, but never official met face to face. This guy, Sharpendurance, is one of them.

It was a super fun group of people. When a big group of social media happy runners get together it’s nothing but smiles.

2015-05-30 10.23.16

Well, smiles and lots of pictures.

2015-05-30 10.31.51

The man behind Pro even came out with the family to join us.

Judah was the photographer so that explains the whole finger thing.

2015-05-30 10.44.05

Just to name a few that were there- Silent Assassin, RunTriMom, Smitha, Leslie, Pavement Runner, Melissa, Carlee and Sarah.

 

We hit up the Suja Rock ‘n’ Roll San Diego Marathon and 1/2 expo with a plan of being in and out of there really quick afterwards.

2015-05-30 11.47.18

Do you like my Run With Perseverance tank top? Pretty sweet message, right?

We took our awesomeness all over the darn place at the expo just like last year.

The Spongebob Swagger Wagon they had on display there was a little cooler than our Silvo.

2015-05-30 12.08.36

There’s alays good stuff going on at the Run Westin booth and this guy, Chris, is just amazing.

2015-05-30 12.16.002015-05-30 12.17.44

Our favorite NuttZo was there and giving samples on little banana slices. Brilliant.

2015-05-30 12.21.00

On the way out we check out the good looking egg white jugs. We may or may not have ordered a jug at the special expo price. We did not, however, buy this cool hat.

2015-05-30 13.15.21

Deena Kastor is running the half tomorrow. I think she’s pacing the 8:00 minute mile group. They were interviewing her on stage as we were leaving.

2015-05-30 13.04.43

I can’t tell you how much I admire and respect her and how much I’ve learned just with my few times and events I’ve spend with her.

One thing I caught today as the boys were pulling on my legs was the reasons why she’s still running and decided not to retire when she was about to a couple years ago.

She said that her fastest days are behind her, but her best days are yet to come. I love that outlook and I have the same thought every single day.

She also said that there’s no end to progress. I didn’t catch exactly what she was referring to, but every little step we take in life, whether it be in running or stepping out of our comfort zone or just not giving up on our dreams, goals or priorities is progress in my book.

That kind of progress doesn’t ever have to end.

 

With that friends, I’m out. Don’t ever let your progress end. Slow it down sometimes and take those darn hills along with the valleys, but don’t let it end. Don’t ever give up.

 

Have a great rest of your weekend!

Smile

    I really needed that message about there being no end to progress! I’ve been in a funk lately and my running progress has plateaued but I’m going to snap out of it. Thank you!
