Get your shine on!

Good morning folks!!

I can't believe the beautiful weather that we're currently experiencing here in Oklahoma right now!

The past 2 summers have been the hottest summers on record with highs over 100 for days on end. Our highs this week are in the 80's and lows in the 60's!

The cooler temps made for a really good run with my Pathways group last night. They are about a month away from their goal race, The Bedlam 10k. And I have no doubt that they will be ready!!

My shoulders got a little bit red at the lake this past weekend and were a little sore yesterday. I wasn't looking forward to putting on my sports bra because I knew it would rub on my sunburn. But, my favorite running store, Fleet Feet Sports Tulsa saved my life again. They have an after sun spray called Skin Strong that is beyond amazing!!  It isn't sticky or greasy and instantly relieved the burn/pain!! 

Last night was my first Insanity "recovery" workout. I think that I might be seeing some results ;)
I'm excited but extremely nervous about starting month 2 next week. I've already decided that when I finish Insanity, I'm going to start Focus T25.

My sweet sister texted me yesterday to tell me that she has lost 18 pounds in 2 months!!  I'm so proud of her!!  She's changed her diet and is working out daily!!  She told me that she ran a mile without stopping on Sunday!!  I'm trying to get her to run a 5k with me for my birthday in September! That would be awesome!!  The sad part is that her co-workers make fun of her!!  What the heck?! I told her they were just jealous and not to worry about them. Way to go, sis!

That's all that I've got for now.

Have a terrific Tuesday!


  1. Oh my goodness! That is so sad that your sister's co-workers are being so cruel? Why would they make fun of someone who is being active and healthy? Please send congratulations for making positive and sustainable changes in her life.

    1. I don't understand why they are so cruel, unless they are jealous. Thank you. I will certainly tell her. She will appreciate it.

  2. I want to hug your sis, what a bummer her coworkers are not more supportive! i say good for your sister and don't listen to the naysayers!

    1. Its unfortunate that they can't be supportive of her for making positive changes in her life. I guess they are just jealous!
