Go! Go! Go!

Way too much fun cheering today! GO IRONMAN ARIZONA RACERS! Linsey Corbin & Rachel Ross (2 of my team mates & buddies) are killing it! Linsey running in 5th right now & Rach in 12th! Keep going girls... I am literally cheering so loud my neighbors have asked me to shut the windows! Shout outs to TJ Tollakson and Terra Castro too... What great racing today... I am way too excited for you guys!

AS for me...
Today I had a nice hill run BUT Jim is on Oahu so I was lacking some Kainoa-sitting help. What's a mom to do??? Run him in the jogger. Nice. Just as I was starting out there "just happened" to be a nice 10 mile road race going on. Of course coach told me I have raced the past few weekends and needed a break...so the race was not on the plan. Being I am "pushing" all 31 pounds of Kainoa and a stroller I figure I can't really "race" so I will just run with the group and have some fun on the rolling "hills" for my hill day. I totally think pushing a solid 40 pounds counts as a hill.

The 10 miles went by pretty quick. Kainoa slept most the ride and once again this momma is back to the jogger pushing for a little resistance-training! Our time you are wondering... let's just say it wasn't "race" pace since I wasn't allowed to race. But it was a nice enough pace for Kainoa to win a first place overall female frog...

I can't believe you ran a 10 miler with Kainoa in the jogger!! That is tough and definately counts as hill work. I used to push my kids. I pushed my 1st in the jogger for years but moved up to a double jogger after my 2nd was born. It was a tough workout! I'm glad you got to join the fun of the day.

Great picture of you and Kainoa! He looks like he's getting a nice nap... :) Glad your "race" went so well and you guys had fun out there! You two look awesome!

A Mamma needs to do what a Mamma needs to do....You still look speedy even with an extra 40 lbs and pushing a stroller ;) Can you push me in St. Croix....I will act like there is something wrong with me...Oh wait there is something wrong with me I am CRAZY :)

PS: thanks for the 1 mile cheer up! I've been in some dark days lately. The FL 70.3 reality is setting in.

Kainoa has this look on his face like, "Oh no, not another flash. What is up with the Kona papparazi?" Sounds like a nice day for the two of you. We are still baby-joggering occasionally, although I think I have it easy having a "skinny-mini" for a kid. Four years almost and only 30 pounds...
