events and my love of carrot cake
That race was fun. I sort of dreaded it since I had not been running for almost a year. Still after we began I remembered how much I do, in fact, enjoy running. Plus, after the race, they treated us to two beers at the Expo which was nice and necessary.
Of course while running that event, my friends and I contemplated other races we could participate in. A 10k is probably the best event in my opinion. It is the ideal distance and time. I enjoy half marathons but they require a little more of a commitment. A full marathon is a beast which I do not know that I will ever take on again. I have not yet performed a 5k and do not know if I ever will. So, we considered other events this year. I want to sign up for a half or a 10k to motivate me to begin another running regime.
In the meantime, I discovered an event and have signed up for it. The Lemon Climb is our next event. The goddess and I are participating in a non running event. Or, actually, we could try to run some of the flights of stairs. I doubt we will run 43 flights of stairs. I don't want to do it, haha! We are fundraising as well. This is a really great cause and I love how it evolved. I love that a little girl came up with a lemon stand as a way to raise money to fight cancer. Her determination and efforts created the lemon climb events which are held, annually, in cities around the U.S.
It was good. I prefer a little more frosting. I liked the presentation and it was moist. I don't love that word but it is appropriate it this case. It was a great conclusion to our meal there.
I am off to hit a Barre class (further way to combat the sugars I ingest). I will not cut wine out of my diet. Or carrot cake for that matter. So, I invest time and energy into barre and yoga classes. I am teaching the mini tomorrow at my house. I am finding more instructors at my gym that I like. Thankfully. And they have offered more classes during the day which are inspiring me to attend more of the classes. It's finally coming together! Or, I suppose, I am making more of an effort to go to the gym. I want to find TRX classes nearby my house. That would be the ultimate workout. More and more studios are offering these classes. I took my first TRX class in Santa Fe. I wish that studio was here. I loved the energy, the music and it was a kick ass class! I might venture down, again, to take another class at Temple and Tribe. Epic workout.
Off to begin my day. Cheers!
