Oh Shit

Our family has a KC trip coming up in July. We ended up extending it a little bit because me and my bestest friend in the whole wide world (D) are celebrating our 10 year wedding anniversary this year. Because we are slackers and didn't take the time to plan out a super epic anniversary trip, we decided to take advantage of the grandparents intense love for our spawn and we will be bumming around the city pretending we have no children. Earlier I had wanted to go to Camp Nerd Fitness later in the year but for various reasons it didn't really work out. I wanted something to work towards that would make me push my workouts harder. A put your money where your mouth is kind of deal because damn it, it is SO easy to get lazy, skip a workout, then skip all of them and then end up in a downward spiral where you are sitting on the couch stuffing your face with cookies dipped in ice cream. No? Just me? (OK maybe not that extreme but still). 

Well we found something. And I THINK I can do it. Because I'm awesome and I do 5Ks and stuff......

Color Me Rad 
I was blowing out blue snot for like a week. 
This guy is awesome and annoying when
he makes me run. Love him. 
I even do 5Ks in the nasty Vegas heat. But we like when there are bubbles:

L's first 5K at 4 years old. He ran some of
4ish month pregnant with Bug and I carried him through
a good chunk of this. Woot. 
I may have had a better time than he did...

And sometimes we just do it for funsies like it's a date or something.

Color Run with D
Yeah I even finish the races. As fast as a turtle in mud. 

And because it's not enough to just run during the day:

L & D late night Foam Glo
It seemed like a good idea at the time. 
 Bubble Runs are my favorite because they make you feel a little better when your liver is trying to escape your body and your tongue has already fallen out:

Look, we DO actually run these things!
Almost done

Bam sneetches! 

So yeah. I mostly need this as proof that I can finish a normal 5K because I just signed D and I up for the Rugged Maniac 5K which is a 5K with crazy obstacles, including running over fire, some trampoline shennanigans, cargo nets, a warped wall, army crawls, carrying 25-50 lb sand bags, etc. All kinds of things that I apparently have decided that I can do. I have no idea why. And since I'm nuts I convinced my twin to run it with us and managed to rope my big bro into it as well. Our team name? OVERCONFIDENT. Because let's face it, that's kind of what I am going into this. Mid-July, KC humidity, running. BRING. IT. ON. L hates it because I have been running more and make him go with me. 

We will see how it goes. If you don't know me that well, here are my perfect workout shirts: 

Simply put: I lovehate working out. I have never really liked running. But I once got to a point where I didn't loathe it and I consider that some serious progress. I think running is like kale. No one really likes it but certain people say they do. I don't believe you but OKAY. 

Anyway we shall see how it goes. Happy 10 year babe, let's die a horrible ugly death together!
