I am alive!!

Hey lovely followers, I promise I have not forgotten about my dear blog dedicated to my love in fitness and mostly running. You see, I have been busy getting ready for Thanksgiving (in crafter fashion I decided I needed to make stuff) and somehow have had little time and/or energy to post didly squat. In addition to this, my running is still seriously on hold until I get to a doctor. I have never recovered from whatever injury I acquired during my half marathon training and then just made worse by not giving myself a full chance to rest. I have done just that the past 3 weeks and although it seems like it feels a lot better, when I try to run or do anything with too much intensity, my left shin/calf hate me. Going to work on getting an appointment after Turkey day and go from there. Here is to hoping I can be back to running by the new year! It is literally KILLING ME to not be able to run.

I was honestly very  a little worried when opened the tin and the smell kind of reminded me of fish food we fed our fishes as kids. I decided to not let it bother me and just see what happened. It was a little over a

The time I tried Crossfit

Sometime in the last week or so, our local cross fit gym, CrossFit 717, posted on facebook that they were going to hold a free running clinic followed by a workout. Being a lover of trying new (especially free) things I wanted to jump right on this. Of course, the first obstacle was trying to switch work hours. Once I got that squared away,  I RSVP’ed to the event.  They told me I just needed to come in workout clothes if I intended to participate and bring my running shoes. No problemo. Fast forward to Wednesday. I worked the 8-4:30 shift, drove home in time to get changed and head the big whopping 1 mile to CrossFit 717. I arrived at about 5:23pm and there were already a TON of people in there. The side I entered from was a big garage door that was open and you could see right into the main gym area. I quickly found “a box” to sit on and there was an area of chairs that was mostly full too. Both co-owners also practice Physical Therapy in the area which to me is a great “cross-
