Her Times 5K 2014 recap!

This post is a little late but I couldn't skip it.  Last weekend I ran my favorite 5K once again.  The Her Times 5K is an all-female 5K and it was the first race where I felt like a runner.  It would take an awful lot for me to miss it.


Unfortunately, Grandma Glo was down for the count with pneumonia 
so I set out for the race with Katie & Mandy.

We caught up with our friends, Emily and Kate at the start.  Kate is super fast (3rd overall- wow!) so she lined up at the front.  Katie & I headed for the middle of the pack and Mandy & Emily joined the walkers.


There's always time for a fun shoe picture before the start.


For once we were happy that the weather man was wrong.  Despite a forecast that called for a cold, rainy morning the weather was great.  The sun even peeked out at us for awhile and the temperature was perfect once we got moving.  

Katie & I stuck together and to her credit she did not whine even though I was pushing her a little.  
She left the race with a new 5K PR that day! Nice!


We hung around the finish line for awhile and Kate found us. (she'd been there for a bit already) Eventually we spotted Mandy & Emily on their way to the finish line and cheered them all the way in!


Happy, sweaty finish line selfies all around completed an awesome morning!


Do you have a favorite race that you just wouldn't miss?

5 Reasons to Drink Your Water Today

1.  It's free.
I'm assuming you have access to a faucet.  You don't have to buy bottled water, just go get a glass.

2.  It makes you feel full.
Are you hungry?  Are you sure?  You might just be thirsty.
Have a big glass of water before you
snack just to make sure.

3. It will improve your mood.
Several studies have linked dehydration to irritability, headaches, and  difficulty concentrating.  Yikes!

4.  If you don't, you could die.
Depending on our environment, human beings can only live a few days without water.  Doesn't that seem to indicate that it's important?

5. It makes your skin look better.
My skin gets very dry as soon as we turn on the furnace.  If you're like me, get your water.  Your dry, flaky skin will start to recover.

5 Ways to Feel Better Right Now

1.  Drink some water.  
Do it now.  If you wait until you feel thirsty, you're already getting dehydrated. 


2. Go for a Walk.
Shoot for 30 minutes every day.  Take it outside whenever you can.

3. Call your Mom.  
Or your sister. Or your best girlfriend.
Social connections are so good for your health.  
Take the time to strengthen your connections today.

4. Eat colorful foods.
If your whole plate is beige, there's something missing.

5.  Count Your Blessings
Make a gratitude list or even start a gratitude journal.  
Consciously observing the goodness in your life is a great way to feel better fast!

5 Yoga Practices to Try This Week

I love yoga.

There have been times in my left when I've walked away from my yoga mat for short periods of time, but I always come back. 

If you haven't tried yoga, I encourage you to give it a chance.  There are many different types of practices, so don't try one class and decide you're not a yogi.  Try different teachers, try different styles.  There is probably a yoga practice that's right for you.

Here are 5 yoga practices to try this week!

1. Jillian Michaels- Yoga Meltdown

This one is not traditional.  
True to form, Jillian uses yoga as just another tool to kick your butt.


2. Tara Stiles- Energizing Morning Yoga

Although Tara Stiles is know as a bit of a rebel in the world of yoga, her style is fairly traditional.  Don't be intimidating by her flexibility, work at your own pace.

3. Sadie Nardini

Sadie likes to get your blood pumping.  I always find her workouts deceiving... I think they're easy and then I realize I'm sweating and getting tired.


4. Denise Austin Yoga Metabolism Booster

I've been a Denise Austin fan for a long time.  She's dipped her toe into most kinds of fitness and yoga is no exception.  Her positive personality is contagious and beginner-friendly.


5. Sara Ivanhoe

Sara is another accessible yoga teacher.  She encourages students to push themselves while keeping a sense of humor about the whole thing.


Enjoy!
