In the words of *NSYNC, “It’s gonna be May”…and now we’re here! April was only 30 days long but it just felt endless to me, haha! I’m glad to be moving forward!
And now it’s time to link up with Deborah and Coco for the Ultimate Coffee Date! These are one of my favorite types of posts because it’s an opportunity to catch up on life! Grab a cup and let’s get it started!Time for another #ultimatecoffeedate with @got2run4me and @deborahbrooks14! Click To Tweet
If we were having coffee, I would tell you…that I’m feeling a little bit better about things now that the Blue-Gray Half Marathon is behind me. I had such a stressful race morning that I just couldn’t get my head in the game for this challenging race, but I know by now that they all won’t be great. I am pretty sure that I’m going to sign up for the 1/2 Sauer 1/2 Kraut Half Marathon coming up in June. Bret’s already signed up so I just need to take the plunge!
If we were having coffee, I would tell you…that I’ve really been working on my nutrition. I noticed that my weight was creeping up so I’ve been trying to be more mindful of what I’ve been eating. My sister and I started a healthy habit accountability challenge, so I did 15 days of smoothies and planned and prepared dinner for 11 out of 15 days. The smoothies were easy (and delicious) but the dinners took a lot of effort. It didn’t help that I didn’t always choose the simplest meals. Regardless, I’m proud, and I know I’ve been eating much healthier. And I’m going to keep it going!
If we were having coffee, I would tell you…that I received my 2nd vaccine from Pfizer earlier this week and thankfully, I’m feeling pretty good! I drank a ton of water, had a couple of doses of Tylenol the day of, and had a protein-packed smoothie after receiving the shot. I seem to be in the clear for any serious side effects and I am so grateful!
If we were having coffee, I would tell you…about the MMIW virtual run that I’m supporting with Bibrave from May 5-8. MMIW stands for Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women. Sadly, murder is the third-leading cause of death among native women. Funds for this event go to MMIW USA, a non-profit that brings awareness and works on the ground with families who are strongly affected.Support indigenous women and families by participating the MMIW Virtual Run! #runchat #MMIW Click To Tweet
