Running…again. What have I done?!

Running…again. What have I done?!

So in January, I set some fitness goals.  Along with trying to lose some weight, I’m ultimately just trying to be healthy and strong, and focusing on fitness is a great way to do that.

I am still doing my kickboxing workouts at 9Round, and I’m still teaching a weekly dance fitness class at work.

I had initially set a goal to also do the Morning Meltdown 100 in my Beachbody app.  However, 10 workouts in, and I realized that for a second-focus workout, I just wasn’t enjoying it enough to force myself to do it.

I still wanted something more. 9Round is AWESOME. I love it. I grow stronger and better there.  But I wanted something to “finish” and work towards.

Then some coworkers were talking about completing the Women Run Arkansas clinic starting in March. I got sucked in. I’ve tried running before (see the year I ran 13 races, plus a triathlon, in 2013), and it’s not my favorite workout. But….it’s something good to work towards. So I signed up too. It will be 10 weeks of personal sacrifice. 10 weeks of home late, making sure I meal plan ahead of time, 10 weeks of pushing myself physically. But I want to do it.


The run clinic typically concludes with a 5K in Conway, but we decided to do something closer to home. And also, something harder and crazier. It’s an 8K up the world’s highest hill (it’s feet too short to be a mountain). So we are signing up for it, too.  #whathaveIdone


Then I was telling one of my weight loss accountability buddies about all of this, and she said “Why don’t we meet up in the middle and do a 5K together?”  She lives in Missouri, so we looked…and we signed up for the NWA Race for the Cure together.  Lord, it’s gonna be one heck of an active Spring!

I’m not sure if I’ve lost my mind or if I’m about to get into great shape….but here’s to doing all of this by May! ha!
