Given that this page was originally created when I was in a more somber place in my life, the theme seemed to reflect that. Now that I feel I have more “color” and energy to me, it’s time my blog reflected that!
And in honoring “coloring” my life by getting out and LIVING it, I am going to enter the Color Run in Buffalo this August.
I may not be able to run the entire 5K, but I can certainly jog and walk it! I have never, ever done anything like that in my life, and quite honestly, I never thought 5K would ever be part of my vocabulary…but I am going to get out there and try! Even if I come in dead last, I will still be miles ahead of all those who never leave the finish line.
With a little color comes some grime along the way, so while I am at it, I am also planning on entering the Dirty Girl 5K in Buffalo in September! And I love the tag line here! I already have one of my three daughters (Robin) ready to get dirty with Mom… and it looks like my Marine (Sarah) might be home for a visit right about that time, so I can get her on our team, too! And that would be quite a boon to the team given that this is not just a running 5K… it’s got an obstacle course built in! It’ll be like a day in the park for her! I have one more daughter to convince (Illy!!). I also want to enlist the ALL ladies from the 12 Week Challenge (Patty included!!… sorry, Will… you can’t be a Dirty Girl).
Slippy Silver Silks, Cradling the Crack, Awesome Aerial Arts; we have the makings of an aerial version of a Dr. Seuss book! I think I am going to have to get right on that! 🙂 An evening of laughs, that’s for sure!
Well, let’s just say that the slippy silver silks are not my favorite… I can’t seem to get a good grip on them. Katie had an even trickier time trying to climb them while wearing socks! Socks and silks are not a good pair.
This was our last Tuesday evening class together, and it was silly 😛 sad 😦 funny 😀 bittersweet and filled with friendship. I so want to keep in touch with these great ladies!
Honestly, folks… DIRTY GIRL 5K in SEPTEMBER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Just throwing that out there…
In spite of the tendonitis, I climbed around on the silks anyway. I’ve been nursing it, so I wanted to make the most of the program!
After only one week, I can do a reverse roll-up all by myself and even add flair!
I’d mentioned earlier that the whole move is a little more comfy in the crack… well, I am trying to get it there!!
I just wanted to do as much as I could in spite of the pain… I cannot wait to continue with my next classes and I am so looking forward to one day doing a routine!! Here is my improved inverted stag:
