Aaron and I have both spent a lot of time learning about and focusing on our health over the past year. I just can't think of anything more important or special than our bodies and keeping them in good health. We both want to make sure that physical fitness is something our boys see as a part of life, now and forever. Although they are not great eaters now, I have trained them to be carb and sugar addicts!, My biggest new years resolution is to not only eat healthy myself but teach them to eat and maybe even like healthy foods. Step one: DON'T REFER TO IT AS HEALTHY FOOD! ha ha ha.
Anyways, physical fitness and eating well is a part of our lives which mean it will be a part of our blog, if you don't like it: Stop reading! ha ha ha. So I have decided to keep running this year and my first goal is to run the moon light run in under 50 minutes. It's 10k or 6 miles and this will be my second time running it. Last year I ran it and it was my first ever 10K!!!!! It took me 58:11 I was 29th in my age group, this year I hope to knock out both those numbers. I started the year of right with a chilly 4 Miles in the river bottom with deep snow that felt like sand under my feet. I didn't love it but Mookie did so I guess that's something!!!! lol
I will also be teaching 5 Zumba classes a week and taking some weekend courses at the college working towards my AFLCA certification. Wish me luck!
Aaron will be doing crossfit training as well as 2-3 runs a week to get ready for his big event: THE TUFF MUDDER! You may be wondering what the heck a Tuff Mudder is, well here it is in their own words: Tough Mudder events are hardcore 10-12 mile obstacle courses designed by British Special Forces to test your all around strength, stamina, mental grit, and camaraderie. With the most innovative courses, half a million inspiring participants, and more than $3 million raised for the Wounded Warrior Project, Tough Mudder is the premier adventure challenge series in the world. Check it out here.
Aaron and some his friends from School will all be taking part as a team in June. It will be in Portland and I get to tag alone for a girls weekend and maybe even a run down in Portland, so excited!!!!!!!! Anyways we are gear up for a new year full of carrots and cardio! lol
