had some 'fun' with the mighty one and the prowler on thursday! pushed it (actually sprinted with it) around the parking lot for about a quarter mile while lucas chased me!
that hurt ...
and so after the fourth workout of the crossfit games i found myself in 42nd place in the 50-54 age group. i thought, hmmm, what would be the best thing to bump me up into the top twenty?! I KNOW! a 50k run! imagine my disappointment when they announced THIS wednesday night ...

i got an email from the mighty one on tuesday - ' Are you running today? If so when and where?' yikes! the last time he came with me, he took down a tree, rolled both ankles and ended up walking shirtless down coolihans (not that i minded that part). so i was a little leery! we decided albion double track was probably safest, especially considering he hasn't been able to run for a year due to a nasty knee injury! i am happy to report that it went well - all body parts still together and no trees were harmed! and he took his shirt off ...
i lost a total of 6", mostly from my boobs and belly. not sure i look much different, but i sure feel better! miraculously i haven't eaten ANY sugar - other than gels on my long runs - since we started. and my coffee is still 'creamless' ! check out the cheezy before/after shots ...
and i leave you with this - thanks garza ...
