Way to Go Girls ...

We have a team!
We need another team!!!
Did I mention the $$ all goes to the Julian Center, the domestic violence shelter for women and children in Indy?
Did I mention that the distances are not bad at all?
--500 meter swim - about 20 lengths in a 25 meter pool....
-- 10 mile bike
-- 3 mile run
Yes, support crew, and yes, I KNOW there are at least 3 more women out there that can do this!! (don't make me call you out by name! :) Come on, really, it's for the fun of it, for the charity, for the chance to try something completely new!! What have we got to lose?

Hey BTWG women - why not?

During our "summer school" meeting today, I was incredibly inspired by all of you who have committed to do future races/events. (Especially our fearless leader Chris!) I love exercising with folks and thought it would be really cool if we could get some BTWG teams out there having some fun.... So what do you think about a triathlon? As a team! Or maybe a couple teams? Take a look at this link, I think this one would be a fun one to shoot for: the Go Girl Triathlon at Eagle Creek Park!
I am game to swim, and have heard from at least one runner (right, Joyce?) and perhaps a few cyclists. I would be happy to register, etc., so if you are interested in joining in the fun, please let me know!
Happy holiday weekend to all!

Summer school challenges/goals

Hey there!
Still sore, especially in my quads ... took my off day today! We celebrated an early Mother's Day with a hike through Eagle Creek with the kids and some prime family time. Tomorrow, my greatest challenge during summer school begins: I am a single mom for three weeks while Matt teaches in Wisconsin. I know so many women who do this so gracefully, that I am almost embarassed to complain. I know it will take lots of scheduling and no excuses to manage work, workouts, homework, meditation, and kid time solo. My daily intention will be patience and a sense of humor! :)
Other goals for summer school:
1. To read "The Chi of Running"
2. To run at least one fun race or event
3. To try some new healthy summer recipes
4. To find freedom in meditation and stillness
5. To keep focused AND enjoy the journey!
6. To be joyful and grateful for this time in my life
Mother's Day to all you wonderful moms !

Gotta say...

I am not usually a hater.
But I am a bit of a hater right now - with the new strength and toning workouts this week!
I can barely type the words "push up," much less do another one!
My legs alternate between numbness and soreness after Thursday's squats and lunges!
I miss my fun little circuit ....
ok, ok, I don't hate it. It's just all new, and all challenging - anyone else feeling this?
