Rock on!!! Yesterday, in the mail, I was pleasantly surprised to get this little beauty:
I got this for completing 2 Rock n Roll events in a year. I will be running Rock n Roll Savannah, so I will get another medal as well after that one, woot! I love me some bling! I can’t wait to hang it up on my new sport hook rack! (If Bobby would ever hang it up. ahem….)
Yesterday, I did a lot of catching up on household things I neglected over the weekend, like dishes. oy. It was nice out, so I opened the window, and Bella enjoyed her perch for the morning.
Mommy, the birds want me to come play tag with them.
I did level 1 of 6 weeks to 6 pack too. I honestly haven’t done this video since May when I completed the full 6 week program. I got SO burnt out on it, I didn’t want to even look at the cover of the DVD box! I also did some foam rolling and stretching, which I neglected this weekend.
Oh, Jillian, don’t look at me like that.
Today it is back to the gym and back to the run for me. I have to head to my parents house later this week for something, so I plan on doing my long run there for a change of scenery. Will be interesting! I feel like I am starting to gain a little bit of speed. My IT band still hurts like the dickens after a long run, but seems to do ok during my runs, so hopefully it will hold up for me. It is usually just sore right after I run and is gone the next day. Weird.
Ok, more laundry awaits. I can promise you I won’t be doing any of this:
In case you didn’t know, I despise ironing. Really. It’s way too much work for something that’s just going to get wrinkled when I sit down. I do it only when absolutely necessary. If I iron for an event you are attending, then you can rest assured I think you are really really special.
Don’t forget to enter my raffle for Team in Training. it is only $5.00 to enter, remember every little bit helps, and you could win a GREAT prize pack! There is also a runner up prize pack, so two chances to win!
QOTD:- Have you run any Rock n Roll races? If so, which ones?
– Do you like to iron? Some people actually love it, which does not compute in my brain.
I despise ironing also, only in a complete crisis moment.

I hope to have one of those medals in my posession one of these days. 🙂
you will! Rock n roll races are addicting! Well…all races….
I am looking forward to my first piece of race bling from RnR NOLA! Maybe one day I will get some “extra bling” too 🙂
as for the ironing–i don’t despise it, but I only do it when necessary. we use our dryer to get wrinkles out 😉
I use wrinkle release spray!
Awesome medal! I still need to do a Rock n Roll race. Hopefully next year!
Have you ironed at all since HLS?
I plead the 5th.
I’ve done one RnR…last year’s inaugural RnR LA. I thought it was a well-run race, especially after hearing horror stories about other RnR’s.
Iron? What’s that? I DESPISE ironing. I only iron if absolutely necessary, and even then, what’s the point because I can iron a shirt for 20 minutes and it will still be wrinkled. Yes. I am actually incapable of ironing.
the ones I have run have been well organized except for providence running late!
I did the extremely wet Rock n Roll Providence!
You need to get a steamer – it will change your life!! I got mine about 4 years ago and can count on one hand the times I have used an iron since then. I steam my clothes every morning and it takes less than a minute!
hhmm interesting! I think my mom may have one. must check it out.
Ugh – I hate ironing! Although there aren’t many chores that I do like! 🙂
Congrats on the new bling!! I haven’t done a RnR event – yet. But I’m hoping to one of these days.
I second the steamer. It has changed my life! No more wrinkles, and it hardly takes up any space. Ready to go in a jiffy! Highly recommend. (even my boyfriend can use it!)
