Happy Friday! Today is a jam packed day for me and my beautiful best friend as she is getting married TOMORROW! (More on that later.) Let’s cut right to it and get started with High Five Friday with Meg!
Nancy (my mother-in-law): Nancy came to my summer school class on Wednesday to do an exercise dance class. (She is a certified personal trainer and group exercise teacher.) We jammed out to quite a few songs included the Cha Cha Slide, Macho Man, Electric Side, and Walk Like An Egyptian! The kids had an absolute blast and were surprised at how tiring dancing can be! We all loved it. Thank you, Nancy!
Roxie: Many of you have been following Roxie’s story, and supporting her along the way. Well, I’ve got fabulous news: Roxie went home!!! After 3 weeks in isolation during treatment, her counts are in and the doctors cleared her to go home. This is unbelievable and just another example of how Roxie is a true fighter. Learn more about Roxie here and stay up to date by following Team Roxie on Facebook.
Me: While it’s hard to give myself any credit compared to what Roxie has been through and accomplished, I will say I’m happy with my #RWRunStreak this week. Before, I had been getting in the minimum: one mile. This past week, I got outside in the morning (instead of on the treadmill in the basement or at the gym), and ran two miles most mornings.
- Monday: 2 miles
- Tuesday: 3 miles
- Wednesday: 2 miles
- Thursday: 2 miles
- Friday: TBD
Ok, two miles is not groundbreaking, but I’m happy I maintained it throughout the week at 5:30 am! And it is double than what I had been doing so…. I’m proud. Plus, I’m running around like crazy with my kiddos during summer school, just not counting that distance. On Wednesday I actually brought my Garmin Forerunner and saw that I ran a mile with both classes! Extra 2 miles for the day! Friday (today) is TBD because I am pre-writing this post since I joined the other bridesmaids for a sleepover with our fabulous bride last night. This morning, I’ll sneak out for a light jog before the festivities begin. I will keep the streak alive!
