I've lost my damn mind.

Yep. That's all there is to it. I've lost my damn mind. I'm 32. I'm a fatty. Exercise and me don't really chill in the same circle. But here I am, committed to do not one, but TWO 5ks. One is in September (Dirty Girl Mud Run) and one is in October (The Color Run). This blog will mostly focus on training, and the color run, but I may toss in some info about the Dirty Girl run. This blog will be co-authored by my teammates, so you'll get to see lots of points of view. Mine will probably have the most swearing. :)

The funniest part of all of this is that I have no clue WHY I decided to take up running. I loathe running. I hate the outdoors. I despise being sweaty. I'm an indoors kind of girl. But then... I don't know, it just started annoying me. I mean, yeah, I'm a fatty mcbutterpants. But I've always been that. it should bother me more, but it doesn't. I don't mind how I look, and fat or skinny, I'm a pretty awesome me. But I just suddenly felt like running was something I NEEDED to conquer. And when I say that, I don't mean being the fastest. Nope, not at all. In fact, the two races I'm doing specifically are NOT timed, and are all about fun. My goal? To finish. 1 hour, 3 hours, running, walking, crawling... I don't care! But I WILL do it. Because it's a challenge. And I'm not going to let myself kick my own ass. I don't plan to become a competitive runner. Frankly, I think those people are off their damn rockers. A running high? I'd rather have a Grey Goose high, thank you very much. But, I just feel like my brain says "You can't do this", so I'm going to show it who is boss.

However... training starts tomorrow. So, I will probably have a whoooole different attitude by then!


(Please note: my teammates and I have started a new blog, titled Dyed on the Run! and it can be found at www.dyedontherun@blogspot.com. We would LOVE for you to follow us there. Either way, I will be posting a lot of my posts from there, here as well. Thanks!)

I've thought about doing the Color Run since it looks like a lot of fun...hmm maybe I should look in to it more. "A running high? I'd rather have a Grey Goose high" that so made me giggle!! :)

First color run is awesome! My husband, myself, and our then 7 monthish baby girl "walked" it with the stroller. A great and colorful time was had by all.

Second I found this Pinterest DIY gem for you. Looks easy right? Sure is as long as you have $300 worth of machinery, software, and supplies to create this clever little sticker to slap on your already pricey (yet so worth it!) KinchenAid mixer! http://alittleofthis---alittleofthat.blogspot.com/2011/01/mixer-subway-art-tutorial.html

New reader, but loving the blog. Keep up the fun and go baby go on the training!

I applaud you on doing it. My almost 14 yoa son does 5K runs all the time. I don't run unless I'm being chased. A couple weeks ago I did participate in my first 5K walk. I felt the burn a couple of times but felt so accomplished once I passed the finish line. I wish you all the best. You can do it!

Kenzo is the latest to go. The Japanese label's owner, louis vuitton outlet Moet Hennessy, issued a statement Tuesday blaming Argentina's "complex economic context" for the closure of its louis vuitton outlet store on Oct. 10. Government trade restrictions kept Kenzo from importing its spring and summer Louis Vuitton Outlet M40143 lines, store employee Stella Christianopol said.
