A few times a year, you may catch me out of workout clothes.  This is the month of Virgos and I realized how many Virgos are currently in my life.  My brother, my husband, my trainer, my coach, and a good handful of friends.  That’s really interesting cause Virgos are pretty much the opposite of Geminis.  This weekend, we celebrated a few birthdays.  But I just got a few from my trainer’s birthday happy hour.  My best friends are my gym buddies.  Makes perfect sense, it’s what we do everyday.  It’s our hobby and part of our lifestyle.  It also helps that we not only love each other, we love wine and chocolate cake too!  Life is about being with those that makes you happy and enjoying things that make you happy.  Don’t cut yourself short!  Live a little!


Austin Mile Challenge

About a year ago, I joined a track group called Outright Fitness.  I wanted to add something new to my fitness routine.  I’ve never been a runner and believe me, it was a little intimidating heading out every Saturday morning to run with these guys.  They are fast.  But I went and week after week, I got better.  A few weeks ago I signed up for the Austin Mile Challenge.  I didn’t know it was the inaugural race for Back the Track.  I went out with a couple of track buddies.  They cheered me on.  I got to watch them kick ass.  I also got to hang out with some awesome runners, including Chikage Windler of CBS.  I ran my fasted mile ever under 7 minutes and got 3rd place in my age group.  I was excited, cause I know I will only get faster.
