Hug Your Loved Ones Tight

Today I did a 44 with a little bit of everything – balance work, core, glutes, biceps and triceps.

I used my wobble disc – Wobble Discand did a half squat – 


While staying in this position I did bicep/tricep arms – alternating each arm –

left bicep - right tricep
left bicep – right tricep
left tricep - right bicep
left tricep – right bicep

I used 8 pound dumbbells and counted a bicep-tricep for each arm as 1 rep = my arms felt this for sure.  (Especially since I did my 75 sec plank followed by 40 push-ups for the January core challenge right after this.)

I also ran again!!!  Today I wanted to push the pace a little since I’ve been doing a lot of slower runs.  I did 7 miles in 43:27 (6:12 pace) and then another 1.3 miles as my cool down.

As a mom I have a hard time putting myself in that position and my heart breaks for the entire family.

I know that many people today are running in honor of Meg whose death should not have happened and is tragic on every level.

Losing someone is always hard whether you had time to prepare because it was due to illness or the sudden unexpected tragedies that happen all around us.  Living with regret is even worse.

Today make sure that you don’t have a reason to regret anything – enjoy every second and show your loved ones how very much they mean to you!!!
