Hi everyone! As is always the case, I have the best intentions of updating this blog and then I completely mismanage my time and fail. If anyone has advice on how to work on this, please let me know! I'm keeping this post short for now, as I am post-workout and bordering on hangry.
The virtual Mustache Dache has closed but there are still plenty of cities across the country where you can get in on it in person. For a reminder on what this is about, check out the original post HERE. Don't forget to use the code FALLDOWNGETUP for 10% off. DO IT.
I'd also like to let you know that I am now a Spartan race affiliate! They have some incredible races coming up, including Sprints in both Miami, FL and Los Angeles, CA the first weekend of December. I am in the process of getting a specific Spartan affiliate page added to this site, but me + html = trainwreck, so please bear with me. In the meantime, please use this link below to get $10 off a Spartan race!
In other news, I had the opportunity to take a day-long coaching class through my local speciality run store. They offer numerous training programs over the course of the year that reach runners of every level and ability. As much as I enjoy working with runners in the store environment, I would love the opportunity to work with them in a coaching environment. I know there are numerous ways to become a coach, and I am researching many. However, this chance to get my feet wet, share my running knowledge through both personal and professional experience, and get new runners on the road was something I couldn't say no to. I will certainly share more of this journey as it continues to involve.
Lastly, if you follow me on Instagram or Twitter, (why don't you?) you may have noticed the daily appearance of the hashtag "chasethebird." Oiselle issued a challenge to any and all to do at least 15 minutes of exercise every day from November 1 to November 26. While I am not good at streaks of any kind, this one has gone very well. I actually look forward to getting it done and have managed to do so despite 12 hour workdays, long road trips, and other life shenanigans. Run, spin, lift, yoga. A little bit of everything, which keeps both my body healthy and my brain interested. There are only 4 more days left to go, and I'm going to be a little bummed when it is over. Perhaps a December challenge is on the horizon...
That is all for now, random bits and pieces, but that is life. Thanks for stopping by!
