Why hello there! I figured you all
missed me wouldn’t mind reading a blog post after silence for 1 whole month over here at Healthy Life Happy Wife. Plus, this weekend is going to be super exciting!
So here I am, at my lovely Financial District Starbucks utilizing their free Internet during my half hour break. Please forgive me if I spell some things wrong or lack perfect grammar…
To the excitement!
Friday BLC and I will be running a 200 mile relay through New Jersey with 12 other runners! It is the first Reach the Beach through New Jersey so there will probably be a few kinks but I’m pretty excited if for nothing else than to meet my teammates!!
BLC and I are
well trained not prepared at all but still super nervous stoked.
Our team name is a play on the Jersey Shore MTV show (which I may or may not watch religiously – don’t judge).
BETTER THAN GTL: RES REPEAT (run, eat, sleep, repeat in place of gym, tan, laundry)
You can keep up with our shenanigans throughout Jersey by following our hash tag on twitter #teamresr or following me on Twitter (wink, wink) at Asutt.
Other bloggers on our team are:
Jamie @ From Couch to Ironwoman (our co-captain!!)
Megan @ Run Like a Grl (who I’ve met before and can’t wait to share a van with!)
Sarah @ Mom Running on Empty
Colleen @ The Chocolate Mile
Stephanie @ Live Like a Grrl
I feel like I know all of these girls already due to how much we chat on our Facebook group page but I can’t wait to officially meet & hang with all of them!
My plan: have fun & don’t die. (I aim high.)
I have not started packing yet but I figured an after the fact packing list would probably be better to post because when I inevitably forget something, I can make sure to tell you so no one has to make my same mistake
We received our approximate leg times so I will share them with you so you can think of me (& BLC) during our legs:
BLC: Leg 1 – 3.13 miles at 11:53a; Leg 2 – 5.66 miles at 11:08p; Leg 3 – 6.2 miles at 9:27a
Me: Leg 1 – 9.36 miles at 12:27p; Leg 2 – 4.24 miles at 12:10a; Leg 3 – 4.63 miles at 10:38a
(Please keep in mind I will be running next to a cemetery at midnight. Eek!)
Tomorrow BLC and I will be picking up the van & we will be leaving Friday morning to head up to the start! Wish us luck
Also, our team has some absolutely amazing sponsors so I wanted to give them a shout!
Justin’s Nut Butter
Give them some loooove because they are keeping us compressed, hydrated & full thanks!
