APRIL 14, 2010

12:01 AM…..This AMAZING Day began!!  I had 2 missions for this day! 1.  Be the first to wish my Dear friend Lori happy birthday and 2.  receive my first Reiki attunement.  The first mission was accomplished with perfect timing!!  Staying  up this late has its drawbacks.   I OVERSLEPT for my workout!!  No worries (I thought to myself) I will get in my cardio after work.  I had a hectic day in the Health Center (as always).  I left around 2:30 and headed home to get mentally prepared to receive my Reiki Attunement.  I changed into relaxing attire and called my Dear friend @dailykat . She is my guide/teacher on this journey.   After we spoke, I went to my relaxing spot, set up as she suggested.  I relaxed, grounded myself , and accepted the Reiki Attunement from Kat.  Ahhhhhhhh……The EXPERIENCE was, in a word…FANTABULOUS!!!!!  I felt more ALIVE, more ENERGETIC, More RELAXED than I have in a VERY LONG TIME!!!!!!  I looked on my blackberry in the group and saw that My Dear friend @kthenb had just completed a 5K…FOR FUN!!! I also knew that my “Twin” @teetee_71 was crushing it on the bike at the gym!!  Feeling BRAND NEW and completely and totally INSPIRED, I decided to catch the sunset 5 minutes from my house and walk/jog a 5K!!  I DID IT!!!  It was BEAUTIFUL!!  I took  ALL OF YOU WITH ME!!! 
 
THANK ALL OF YOU FOR LOVING AND SUPPORTING ME!!!!! XOXO

The Beginning of my "Personal" 5K (Wednesday 4/14/10)

Counting my BLESSINGS (this sunset being one of them)

Not a worry , pain, nor fear.....not now....only PEACE....

 I had an amazing weekend!!!  It started out on Friday!  After an AWESOME day of  Feet and #FollowFridays, we headed up to Tampa to see “How To Train your Dragon”  in Imax 3D!!  This was a very cute movie!!  The ending disturbed me a bit, being a podiatrist and all, But it was very entertaining!!! (YES, I’M A BIG KID!!)   Once we left, we went down to the square (picture above).  You could hear the music blaring from 2 night clubs!!  2 songs stuck out….”Planet Rock” and “Don’t Stop Believing”  I Love them both for different reasons!!  We had the kids with us so no clubbing that night….BUT I will be going back!! 😉  Then, On Saturday, I was reminded how AMAZING  my Tweethearts are!!!  @FabFattieShan and @nomorebacon ran a 5K for Autism and made some PR times!!! WELL DONE, YOU 2!!  I was also impressed with @ShrinkingJeans!!  These Ladies AMAZE me DAILY!!!  They are in the process of Raising money while training for a half-marathon for  Team In Training!! @LissaJoy smashed an 8 mile long run, @ReallifAdv ran almost 7 miles while dealing with a foot injury and MY SHERO @Christieo ran on a #TreadmillInTheMall ALL DAY SATURDAY For 26 miles!!!!!!!

What a WONDERFUL Valentine/MyrtleBeach5K/Girls Roadtrip/Tweet-up weekend!!!!  It started after work Thursday night 2/11/10.  Monica, Jessica, Betty (Cheerleader along for the ride) and I hit the road around 8:30 PM!  We had a 9 hour drive ahead of us.  We were ALL happy to be getting away for a little bit!!  I was EXTRA EXCITED because I was going to meet Eddie (@damanlovett), Joey (@PassionMD), CarolAnn (@ctreacy), and (@FabMissK) for the first time!!!  We had some audio books.  I had my Podcasts (@MizFitOnline @Dietgirl @TwoFitChicks… Yes I listen to them more than once…DOESNT EVERYBODY?!?)  The dive was filled with LOTS OF JOYOUS LAUGHTER AND GIRL TALK!!!  We arrived in Myrtle Beach just in time to see the sunrise from our hotel room!!

We ate some breakfast, took showers, and went to bed!!!  We needed to catch a little shut eye before we went to the expo to pick up our Race Numbers and other goodies!!!  About 4 hours into the nap…my brother called!  He and his wife denise (@sunnyd4) had already been to the expo and gotten their numbers.  They arrived in Myrtle Beach on Thursday (From knoxville, TN) They wanted to go over the marathon route (Denise was going to be running her first marathon on Saturday)  Joey also called and said they were going to be heading over to the expo around 1!  We started getting ready and made our way to the Expo!  

  

I knew that behind those walls….My friends were waiting to meet me for the first time!!!!!!   I was soooooooo excited!!!!!!  Let me just tell you….. I walked into the convention center filled with tons of people…and then heard…”MO” It was Eddie, Joey, and Kat running up to me from the left!!!  The warm tight hugs felt…LIKE HOME!!!!! Ahhhhhhhh…….

Once we left the Expo, we met up for a late lunch!! I had a blast getting to know Eddie, Joey, and Carol Ann!!!  

  

  

We went back to the room , got changed, and took a little nap!  We planned to meet at 6:30PM to warm up.  The race started at 7!  Well…. Long story short, we had the wrong address and arrived at the starting line around 6:59!!!  No stretching….No warm up…Just racing!!  Btw….I DONT RECOMMEND THAT!!! :-/  I promised people I would take it easy and I did!!!  I planned to walk the entire race (Knee injury) but I did run a 3rd of  the race.  Monica decided to stay by my side and make sure I was ok!! (She’s the best).  While we were running…she was able to catch some action shots!!!  Oh…I forgot to mention…IT STARTED TO SNOW AT EXACTLY 7:00!!! Brrrrrr……  

  

 It was hard, long, and COLD… But WE MADE IT!!!! (DETERMINATION)  

  

The above picture was taken by my sister-in-law Denise (@sunnyd4).  She drove around and snapped pictures and cheered me on at EVERY MILE MARKER!!!!  I was looking forward to returning the favor the next morning while she was running her 1st marathon BUT it was cancelled due to the snow!!! 😦  After the race…we went home to shower and change.  We ate a wonderful mexican restaurant.  Once we left, we tried to find Joey’s Beach house but the snow was making the travel unsafe for us Floridians!!  We headed back to the hotel.  We managed to take some pictures to take back to Florida to share with the family and friends!!

Then it was time to warm up a little bit in the heated pool and the lazy river…..My Knees were pleased!!! LOL  

  

Once we checked out of the hotel on Saturday, we drove the marathon route to cheer on the dedicated runners that ran the race (unofficially) It was TRULY INSPIRATIONAL!!!  We worked up an appetite with all that cheering so we stopped for some brunch!!  

Pecan and Banana Pancakes (Shared By 3)

 

 After brunch, we met up with my brother, Denise, Eddie, Joey, and Carol Ann at the mall.  We shopped for Valentine gifts, Laughed, shared, BONDED!!!!  My first 5K was physically, pretty painful BUT I wouldn’t have changed the experience FOR ANYTHING!!!!  My Family was by my side AND I made some REALLY GREAT FRIENDS!!! Cant wait until my next FITNESS/TWITTER Adventure!!!!  My Goal this year is to meet ALL OF MY FAVORITE TWEETHEARTS!!!  My #FabFattieCruise I met @FabFattieShan, @KyraTX, and @JeepJenn.  My #MyrtleBeach5K I met @Damanlovett @PassionMD and @ctreacy (Family/Friends that participated with me @QtHouseOfBeauty @Jessimika28 @Elisa_Hola @KenpoDoc4: My Brother and his wife @sunnyd4)… NEXT STOP….#Fitbloggin     “I Got A Feelin” ;-))
