The July recap!!!

I am sorry I have been MIA for a bit.  Let me see, what has been going on?

July 4th - I did the Oakdale Firecracker 5k.  This was my 4th or 5th 5k ever and I have done it every year since.  It is my favorite course around here.  It is flat and beautiful.  The only downfall is that it is always A MILLION DEGREES!!  This year I ran with my friend Danielle and we took it easy (well super easy for her and just not super pushing it for me)  We had a great time and for the first time she saw how fun it is to just ruin along and check out the sights.

July 7th - Second year running the Brooklyn Color run with my Motley Shues so of course it was a great time!!!



The next week I had off of work so my godmother and her grandson came up for a visit.  Poor CJ was sooooooooooo bored.  I don't miss being 13!!  They left on Thursday and that evening I left to go to Baltimore to hang out with Gabby.  Friday we went to the airport to pick up Moira first then to the Spy Museum in DC then back to the airport to pick up Alirio.  Saturday morning we went to meet Maggie at the Drenched 5k.  We were looking forward to a run where we got cooled off by water and foam!!!  It was so fun.  It is the first year so I am sure it will get better but my only 2 complaints are 1.  The runners didn't get let out in waves so we had to wait in line A LOT. and 2. They started the water balloon fight before everyone was finished because we had to wait on line for the slip and slide for almost an hour.  OH and I don't think it was a full 5k.  Other than that it was a blast!!!



There were 3 cool videos Alirio took but I just cant seem to get them to upload :)

I was supposed to come home late Sunday night but I missed my husband and felt like I had not seen him in a week so I switched my flight to noon.

This week as everyone knows has been BRUTAL with the heat so I have not run AT ALL. 



I went for a walk after work one night and that is it.  I feel horrible about it so I joined a gym near my work.  My plan is that I will go 2-3 nights a week after work.  Even if I just run in the treadmill then do a quick circuit around the machines it has to be done.  I have a 5k tomorrow in Plainview and there are only 3 more summer run series Monday nights left.  Monday is Caumsett which is a nice course.  A little hilly but nice.  I also have a groupon for a yoga place in Kings Park I have to use this week.  I need to get back to yoga so bad, I keep saying it but haven't done it.  I have been trying to get a grip on my eating too.  I actually turned down fro yo TWICE and have been trying to log again.  *fingerscrossed* I can shed some much needed weight!!

I am sorry again I have not been very regular with my posts but I do have some great ones coming.  Including my 1000 facebook fan giveaway!!  I have a bunch of cool things to give away!!!

  2. I'm sorry, but I can not condone saying "nay" to fro yo, not that I've ever had it from anywhere but the grocer's freezer! I am glad we have no disposable income- we have a Red Mango in the Kohl's shopping center in Shirley and I KNOW that would be dangerous!
