Flat Mama Friday #girlsontherun Edition

After 10 weeks of practicing, our team of 15 amazing girls... 14 actually, one is going to a cheer competition... will be running their 5k! Some have done one before and some will be running one for the first time.
We will be running the Reindeer Romp in Rock Hill, SC and I am double excited because Rock Hill has Christmas Ville, and I have been dying to see it since we looked at houses at this time last year!
This will not be a race for me, I will be acting as buddy to another Team's runner, who doesn't have an adult to run with. I can't wait to meet her and coach her to the finish!

It's supposed to be cold in the morning so I added arm sleeves. Super fancy, right? I am hoping to find some antlers today, but I've been looking without much luck.

Are you racing this weekend?

Thursday Training Update and December Goals

Recovery is mostly over and I'm back to mostly working out. How is that for vague and ridiculous?
I have started running and walking again but I haven't really gotten back into the swing with my workouts. This is a recurring issue with me so I'm guessing that no one is shocked. I know I'm not!

Last Thursday I did a Turkey Trot in Charlotte. I wasn't sure what my goals were until I ran into Robert. That's when the goal became having fun. It was a cute race with lots of fun costumes and I got to meet Robert's mom so it was an overall great day!

Friday morning my parents left to drive back to Pennsylvania and I woke up Morgan to go for a hike. I've decided to stop referring to her as the teenie since she is almost 20 and blogs about Theater. I am not at all ok with this, but that's life!

Saturday morning was the Ugly Sweater Fun Run with Fleet Feet. I met up with some ladies I used to mentor and they were walking, so I joined them and caught up on life in general. It was a perfect morning!

Sunday was pretty much a lazy day. I did some squats and crunches and planks but nothing crazy.

Monday was our last practice with GOTR, and I wanted to do my Run Streak Mile with them, which is always a good time. The hubs and I also walked the dogs. It was about 70 minutes total.

Tuesday was back to running, and the weather couldn't have been better. It was in the 60s! I set out with no goals in mind, just wanting to enjoy the run. Imagine my surprise when I ended up with negative splits and my fastest time since June!

Wednesday I walked my Run Streak Mile. No pics because walking is not exciting.

Today I did this week's long run because I am running a 5k on Saturday with GOTR. I started out like Tuesday and made my run breaks shorter to slow myself down. I am glad I did because some of the hills were crazy slippery with wet leaves!

December Goals....

60 miles
2 workouts a week that are PiYo or Core de Force
Plank every day
Make good food choices

Pretty simple... it is the Holiday Season after all!

Happy December everyone!

Project Repat Tee Shirt Quilt #fitfluential

I was so thrilled to be given a chance to have a free quilt made as a Fitfluential Ambassador. I went into my closet and dug out all of my tees from Jersey races that I hadn't used in past quilts.

I followed the directions emailed to me when I ordered the quilt, and cut the back off of each shirt, mailing only what I wanted in the quilt. I was given VIP shipping, and before I knew it, I got an email that my quilt was on its way back to me! It was so quick, and I was eager to see the finished product. I really miss NJ and my Jersey running friends and this quilt is a representation of them!

I will be keeping it in my guest room, which is where all of our Jersey memories are. it's just perfect!

Before I send you over to let me tell you a little bit about them, because the details are important!

They aren't just for runners, use any shirts that are meaningful to you or someone you love.

Ugly Sweater Fun Run

Fleet Feet in Fort Mill sponsored a free fun run today, with food donations optional. they had courses for anywhere from one to five miles printed out so you could choose what distance you wanted.

After a group photo we all headed to tell start point. Some of the ladies I mentored were doing a two mile walk, and since I'm
running the trails tomorrow I decided to join them.

It was a perfect day! Afterwards, they served free pancakes and had fruit and drinks. They also had a raffle and prizes for the best three ugly sweaters. It was a great time and the perfect way to keep moving on a Holiday weekend!

What did you do this weekend to keep your body moving?

Flat Mama Friday, Ugly Sweater Edition

Saturday morning I am running an Ugly Sweater Fun Run, and I couldn't be more excited. I love the holiday season, and this is the perfect way to get it started.
I will post pictures on Sunday, it's a trail run so it should be really pretty scenery. I'm hoping it's not too warm out, I will wear a tech shirt underneath just in case....
