I am honored to be part of this award. I was nominated by Lauren at Finish Line Runner. (Thanks Girl)
The Liebster Award is an online award by bloggers for bloggers. It helps to generate attention for new and upcoming bloggers, typically those with 200 followers or less.
Here’s how it works:
1. You must link back to the person who nominated you.
2. You must answer the 10 Liebster questions given to you by the nominee before you.
3. You must pick 10 bloggers to be nominated for the award
4. You must create 10 questions for your nominees.
5. You must go to their blogs and notify the nominees.
Here the questions Lauren has asked me to answer.
1. What is the greatest challenge you have overcome? My anxiety. Running has helped me overcome this. I occasionally get it here and there but running has truly helped me.
This morning I received a pretty cool email. I have been inducted into the “Girl Gone Sporty Ambassador” program. I am so excited to be part of this awesome community #teamstellar.
As an ambassador this is what is expected from me: Our Ambassadors form a network of sporty women who band together to focus on positive health. Studies have shown two things: 1) healthy living is contagious, and 2) healthy living is not just about weight loss. While we recognize that achieving and maintaining a healthy weight is important, weight and appearance are not cornerstones of our belief system, and we want to encourage women everywhere to embrace whole health and an attitude of adventure – body, mind, spirit and lifestyle – right where they are now. So excited and honored to be included!
Wanna look into becoming a GGSA.
Since yesterday I couldn’t run for Boston like I intended too. So this morning I decided after I dropped my daughter off that I was going to go for a run. The weather here in South Florida was “perfect”, it was cloudy the temps were great but it was super windy (16mph winds). I decided in the car on the way I was going to take it easy today and just run 3 miles. As soon as I started running I RAN! I ran HARD! I felt like the wind picked me up and just pushed me along. When I saw on my watch that it said 2 miles time 17:47. Say whaaaa???? I can’t believe I ran 2 miles under 18 minutes this isn’t possible. Complete motivation mode kicked in. I ran even harder. I was determined to finish 3 miles just shy of 26 minutes.. I finished 3 miles in 27 minutes and 7 seconds. HOLY RUN!! I took 6 days off from running. I thought I completely lost my running/working out mojo. Looks like I found it during this run. I busted my behind and GOT IT DONE!!!
1 year ago today a hole was ripped in our hearts as we watched a scene of mayhem take forth in front of our eyes. When I first heard about the bombings I was on facebook. I was at work and saw people posting about bombs going off at the finish line during the marathon. Of course it hit home for me being from Boston and a dream of mine to someday run the Boston marathon I was in tears. Not knowing exactly what was going on.
I created this small little workout to add into circuit training. I plan on making a few more. Let me know how this little workout worked for you. Did you sweat it out?
Today the hubs and daughter went to lunch and saw Captain America: The Winter Soldier. GREAT MOVIE. I’m such a marvel nerd. Anything to do with Marvel comics I’m there. While I was away I got the most exciting news!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I got a pretty cool exciting email today. I have been accepted into the “I’m Fit Possible” ambassador program. I’m so excited to be part of this community. I love inspiring people to be at their best. I can’t wait to see what’s in store.
This week has been a not to “active” week for me. I ran 3 miles on Monday. I went to the gym Tuesday morning before work and I did chest/triceps. Holy hell since then I haven’t done much. I have been so friggin sore.
I was starting to feel a little better yesterday and went for a run. I took my daughter with me she rode her bike and I ran. What a mistake. She complained the entire time.
So I was hoping to make it to 3 miles. FAILURE, I finally gave up after 2 miles and my daughters nagging. I’m just not feeling it this week. Super lazy. There is always next week right?
