Runolution #11: "Boo"-yah

I ran the Provo Halloween 5K on Oct. 26th as my #11th Runolution. Nic and I ran it. My time was not awesome, but I'm still proud that I did especially since I went rock-climbing the night before and helped my mom move right after the race. Long weekend. My body is so sore.

Before the race...
Cat fight! 
We're going to ROCK this race! 
After the race. It kicked our trash. My time: 33:44. UGH. I feel like I'll never get it under 30min.

Runulotion Races #9, 10, and 11

My Runolution races #9 and 10 were virtual on my treadmill.
August 2013 . Terrible time = 36:20. I had tickets to The Dirty Dash, but had a family reunion conflict. 
Sept 2013 = Forgot to check the time.  I got super sick for the Fireman's Challenge, so I had to skip it. 
#11 Halloween race to come!

Rock On!





This Spartan has been very busy. Whether it's been my new obsession with rock climbing, running a Halloween race, celebrating my daughter's 9th birthday, wrapping up the end of the term, or working on grad school deadlines like a writing-Stevedore life has been kicking my butt.

Here's a photo journey of my last rock-climbing expedition. I go with a former college professor, oddly enough. RJ and I have tons of fun. I've been 3 different times and we try to go once a week. The last time we each did 6 climbs, and of course every time I challenge myself to climb more challenging paths. The most difficult one was a 5.9. I couldn't get to the top without cheating--and resting--a couple times.

This was one of the easier climbs. 





At the top, yo!

Vacathalon

That's my term for my attempts to lose weight before my vacation.
So far I've lost 3 pounds. It's not going well.
Hmmm... The stress from grad school is making it hard to find time to work out.

I have taken up rock climbing once a week. It is a killer workout. LOVE it!
I've worked out a few times before that, and seriously I am not doing great. =/

I'm not going on vaca until the third week in November, but I'm getting nervous.

We'll see.

I've got a Halloween costumed 5K coming up with my friend, Nic.
Also, I got really sick on the week of the Fireman's challenge. UGH. So I didn't go. Like I said. It's been tough. I've had to focus WAY more time on diet choices since I don't have as much time to work out.

I'll keep you updated.
