Check-Offs and Countdowns

In other news, I finished the Two Hundred Sit-Ups program!  I just have to take the final assessment and I’m golden.  I did 257 sit-ups tonight, but I still have to do my boat-load of pushups before bedtime.  I’m going to be glad when the programs are over, I must say, although I know it’s not the end of my pushups and sit-ups – not for a while!  

I was thinking of doing The Incline again this weekend, as my last big hurrah, but plans changed!  Out There Colorado is a division of our local paper, one that covers all outdoor sports and activities in the local area.  They were giving away entry fees into the Run to the Shrine 5K/10K this Saturday, a race that someone had asked me about last weekend.  Long story short, I won!  I’m opting for the 5K, since the race is all uphill, to a shrine built to honor Will Rogers in 1937.  It’s located at the zoo, so after you finish the race, you get to bomb around the zoo all day – pretty cool!

So, that’s what’s going on around these parts, and you can understand if I’m hit or miss these days.  I’m trying to keep up with my blog reading, but even that’s difficult.  Hope all is well with everyone!

    Wow! just found your blog! My hubby is in the Army and we live in Fountain! He's only been in for a year, so this is all still new to us, but I can totally relate to the moving/tricare/deers stuff 🙁 Deers won't change my name to my married name, Tricare keeps sending me to the wrong docs and we've moved 3 times in the past year. yeesh. Saw you do the incline too. We just tried it recently and we did not make it all the way yet lol. Good luck with everything!

    Yeah, you're not busy much. 🙂 Tehehehe.But seriously – all craziness aside – how awesome is it that you WON an entry. Believe me, after doing a handful of 5 & 10k's those entry fees ADD up. And, ending at the Zoo? Stellar! Don't forget a change of clothes so you're not to chilly while you look at the giraffes & think of your really tall red headed friend 🙂
