High Anxiety

In two hours and 15 minutes, I'm running the 1st Annual Neighborhood Rd. Miracle Mile. I can not believe how nervous I am about this race. It's a sprint and it will be over almost as soon as it began, and my protein bar is hovering  just between my boobs. I guess I have high expectations. I want to push myself hard for this. I want to do well and prove to myself that I can do more than I thought possible. I want to run fast and finish with no regrets.

Hoping the race report is good and I can include a picture of myself glowing with pride.

I Didn't Fall Off The Face Of The Earth

I'm still here. Still plodding along. Still doing whatever the hell my thing is. 5 weeks have passed since my last post. I suck at this. There's either nothing to write about or WAY too much and I don't know where to start or what's all that necessary to share.

After the half marathon, I was supposed to start Insanity again, but I just couldn't get into it. I was still participating in my May Challenge with my team and our Beach Body coach. This time I had one team member just never show up. Not one post of a workout or a motivational quote. Zero participation. Another team mate participated half the time. We came in 2nd to last. With running, I've realized I'm pretty competitive, and not winning sucks, not that I EVER win at running. I just don't get why someone would sign up to "play" and then never join in?!?

One of my last sweaty shots for points!

I worked some in May. For two days I went to one high school and helped primp students for senior portraits, and one weekend I got to take the group shots for my daughter's dance studio, which was a lot of fun. I know a lot of the moms and the commute was PERFECT with the studio not 5 minutes from my house!

Only 4 of the 18 girls showed up for Chelsea's hip hop class photo. She's on the bottom left. I loathe most of the hip hop costumes!
This is her tap class- she's second from the right. My personal camera was acting wonky so the shot is dark. Much cuter costume, though!

Not much went on for the rest of May. I worked out, ran some- no real excuses for not blogging.

June. June is probably my least favorite month of the year. It's the epitome of the expression "when it rains it pours." I either have nothing on my social calendar or too much. So far, in less than three weeks of June, I have had two 5ks, three school concerts, two Relay For Life meetings, Relay For Life, Father's Day with my father, then with my f-i-l, a birthday, a dance recital and I worked three days this week. One night I had Chelsea's dress rehearsal for her recital, Charlie's outdoor jazz concert and a RFL meeting. Needless to say, I couldn't do all three, so Chelsea went with my sister and came home with a friend. I just can't stand June. Now school is over and I can finally exhale!

Now that I've caught up a bit, I'll save my 5k race recaps for another post. If i tell you now I'll have nothing to talk about for another five weeks!
