I cannot believe it has been over 4 months since I posted anything…I guess that goes to show how boggled I have been! Lots has been going on and lots is still piling up on my plate. This is just to post a basic update, and some news for things to come!
Things that have been going on: I did a Tough Mudder with my husband and 4 of his USAF co-workers
I started classes (FINALLY) and enjoyed my first on-line class and the ‘A’ I received when completed!!! I turned 34 years old and chose to run 13.1 miles, at 6am with my husband, the morning of my birthday! It was muggy as hell and quite humid, but there was a rainbow to brighten the morning! I organized a group of about 30 gals to take part in the Baumholder’s Shock and Rock Race- An obstacle mud run! It was a great time and I am happy to say it gave a lot of these ladies the taste for mud and the WANT for more!! I started a group for the upcoming Susan G. Komen race for the cure in Frankfurt, and hope to get at least 30 girls or members to run this event!!!
I am signed up for the Saarbrucken Half Marathon in September and am looking forward to all of the pretty sights I should be seeing on the course!!!!
I signed up for the StrongmanRun in Luxembourg, and am now gathering others to make a team and enjoy the world’s “Largest Obstacle Race”!!!
I am pre-registered for the Spartan Beast that should be taking place in Stuggart next spring…I am praying they go through with it and hold this event, because I really want to do it!!!
Last, but not least, I am registering for the GoRuck Light which will also be in Stuggart next year. This will be my April race and I believe it will be a great challenge since my biggest obstacle is always my mind and self-doubt…this should crush that!!!
So, my update is all about racing…but that is what keeps me sane these days when I am taking classes, moving to a new house and trying to prep for a much better school year for James! Whatever keeps us going and keeps us from losing our minds is what matters most. Of course, some of the best little things that keep taking place are the funny moments with my kids when no one is around to believe the things they say and do, and of course just watching them become miniature versions of myself and my husband!!
