Happy Monday! Grab your coffee, tea or kombucha (if you’re me) and let’s catch up.
Speaking of kombucha, I just love that Whole Foods separates and labels the kombucha refrigerator now. Absolutely necessary in my mind.
Yesterday marked the first official day of Marine Corps Marathon training. Ironically it was an “active rest day” so I just did glute activation exercises and some core work. I can deal with that. Like I mentioned last week, I’m 20ish weeks out from the marathon but I’m building up very slowly (three runs a week to start). Florida so graciously decided to have its first tropical storm this week so we’ll see if I’m able to get outside for workouts or if have to resort to the treadmill. The weather has been less than perfect heat and humidity wise, but I pretty much expect it at this point. I know everyone else in the country is still adjusting to the heat so I do feel somewhat of a leg up in that sense.
I’ve decided to do a “formal” recap of training every two weeks on Monday’s, but I’ll include running related posts/thoughts in between when I see fit. Running is a part of my life, but not my whole life so this makes sense right now. Sound good?
Last week my family and I went to see “Jersey Boys” at a local theatre. My sister and I were the youngest ones by about 25 years but we all loved the show! The audience treated it like a concert and danced and clapped the entire time. I said that is what I’ll be like when they come out with a show about Justin Timberlake breaking away from *NSYNC.
I dressed up for the event so I had to document and post pictures because it happens so rarely. P.S. I’ll probably use this picture in future posts because 1) I’m obsessed with the background and 2) I need all the glamour shots I can get.
Before I go, I need to introduce you to the newest member of my family.
Blog world, meet Archie.
We have been talking about getting another dog for years and are so excited to welcome Archie to the family. (No real meaning behind the name other than we all agreed on it). His big brother Rocco is doing well, adjusting as any former only-child would. Archie is a mini Australian Labradoodle and eight weeks old.
I need to work on my dog-photography skills because it’s damn hard to get a puppy to sit still and smile. I will try to limit the dog photos on here, but if you want to see more (and more of my daily life) follow me on Snapchat (<–I just started one for my blog). My username is healthyishlife!
