April Exercise

I checked my Runkeeper app that tracks my exercise and found that I exercised almost 184 miles in April! Wow....I can't believe it.

It's going to be hard to beat in May but I'm going to try.

Warrior Dash

Three friends and I decided to participate in this crazy obstacle race run.

It was fun and end of the adventure, you are wet and muddy.

3.125 miles in 70 minutes with 10 obstacles. A fun afternoon.

New dress in Missy sizes compared to August with my brothers. Wow, I'm amazes myself!!!

Morning Ride

I took a beautiful morning ride today. Just over 15 miles in 1 hour 9 minutes.

I'm laughing that it seems master of fact since a few months ago that would have been almost impossible.

Now I'm at the pool with the kids after a double header football game for Simon until noon.

A great Saturday.

I track my exercise through the app.

When you hit a milestone of sorts, it sends you an encouraging email. Today I got an email telling me I had exercised 1000 miles! 98% of that has been since late August last year.

I have to tell you I an mighty darned proud of myself.

Here's to the next 1000 not taking quite as long to hit!

How I've come to love biking - no, not the kind with a motor! We are lucky to live near the awesome canal system here as well as have a safe neighborhood where we can ride. Being busy with both work and school (reason 27 why I keep forgetting we have this blog!), a girl has to multi-task. Huh? Well, we take our dogs for rides! They run alongside us while we ride. Exercise for us and them! And nothing wears them out like a long ride. Pics coming soon!

Dreamy Draw Easter Hike

A gorgeous way to start Easter morning is a sunrise hike in the Dreamy Draw park.

I took a new route that was just about 4.25 miles in 70 minutes. Some nice inclines and the good company of my girlfriend, Kellie.

I love how my exercising has inspired my girlfriends to come along on my hikes. We get to catch up and get exercise too!

P.S. I do love my new green work out jacket.

March Exercise

I hiked and biked 154 miles in March, which is pretty good since there was also a vacation with kids in there.

I have a good start on April with almost 15 miles biked yesterday when I rode to work and back. It was a beautiful morning.

Dreamy Draw

A beautiful 4 mile sunrise hike in just under an hour.

The desert is so pretty this time of year!
