It’s Tuesday! Time to grab that cup of coffee and get cozy for a chat.
If we were having coffee today, I’d tell you that I’m sore. But, oh, it’s a gooood kind of sore, know what I mean? Sometimes, being sore after a tough workout is the worst, but today’s sore feels oh-so-good. I did all the squats and lunges for Week 9 BBG legs yesterday. It was brutal, but I feel strong and happily sore today.
If we were having coffee today, I’d tell you that I am BEYOND ready to break out my spring clothes. I’m a little done with dark colors and ready to embrace all the pastels. We’ve had such a tease of spring weather and I just want to live in it!
If we were having coffee today, I’d tell you that my first race of 2017 is on Sunday! I’m running a 10K for the puppies. Actually, for all the pets – it’s the Get Pumped for Pets race on Kent Island. This is the second time I’m participating in this race, and race number THIRTY-THREE overall in my running career. I think that’s right, I have a feeling I might’ve missed one or two in my crazy 2012-2013 race seasons. There was a point in my life where running was everything and I had to sign up for ALL the races. Now, I sign up for races that sound appealing (and definitely cannot miss my ZOOMA Race, super excited to do a half marathon this time — which will be half marathon #6!) and running is more like a sweet old friend than a must-do-the-things activity.
If we were having coffee today, I’d tell you that I’m hosting FREE fitness classes next week! I call it “March Madness” and it’s partly because of March and partly because of madness. I’ve worked so hard to teach the most economical classes in Kent County, and in 8 years of teaching I have not once raised my class prices, even when my costs have raised. I try to offer lots of free options throughout the years, as well as class deals. I like the idea of making these awesome workouts accessible to as many people as I can. This is a great time of year to look back at those goals created in January and get moving. Come enjoy some free classes!
If we were having coffee today, I’d tell you that we also have a March into Fitness CHALLENGE happening now — today we have 10 reps of 5 killer moves – cross jacks, squat to lunge, double upper cuts, zig zags, and beast to kick through. I loooove these moves and am excited to share them with you every day for 10 days! Join the fun.
If we were having coffee today, I’d tell you that I’m putting the final touches on planning the Friday night Street Party for Chestertown — the kickoff for our annual Tea Party Festival! The event has evolved into a free admission, food & drink for purchase soiree by the water. It’s so much fun! We’ll have LIVE music this year, and a special children’s activity. I’m super excited to coordinate this event for the fourth year.
If we were having coffee today, I’d tell you that we’re celebrating Miss Phoebe’s gotcha day this week — can you believe she’s only been part of our family for one year?! Feels like she’s always been there and we absolutely cannot imagine our family without her. I think we will celebrate with some salmon!
That’s all I’ve got this week — see you next week!
