My Weekly Workout & Writing Wrap Up

Weekly Workout & Writing Wrap Up

Happy Sunday! I hope you had an amazing weekend and that you’re gearing up for a fantastic week!

If you listened to our Runner Burnout podcast, you know I’ve been dealing with burnout since May. Plus, not to get all dramatic, but Bob and I are stressed from situations beyond our control. So yeah, I’ve been clinging to any type of motivation I can find with both hands.

For me, report cards are a great motivator. So with this concept in mind, I’m jumping into the Weekly Workout Wrap Up blog link up that’s hosted by Holly from Hoho Runs and Wendy from Taking the Long Way Home! I’m also tossing in some writing as well since my goal is to finish three novels this year, two by October 30th and one during November’s National Novel Writing Month! (NaNoWriMo.)

French Gals & Guys Group Running Costumes: Joyful Miles

Hey Joyful Milers, looking to add a little oo-la-la to your Wine & Dine Half Marathon experience? Oui? Awesome, then join us in our first large Joyful Miles group costume as French Gals & Guys!

The costume is easy to customize … white and black striped shirt, black bottoms, a beret and neck scarf. Toss in some black suspenders if you want some extra pop. (We’re skipping since they won’t work with our tank tops and they might be too fussy.) Jackey found hilarious fake French Breads but I worry she might bop Leslie and me in the head with them, LOL. (Even she admits the temptation would be too great.) Add in some red lipstick, chic sunglasses, and voilà, très merveilleux!

Now, we encourage you to wear whatever is comfortable and makes you feel good during the race, whether it’s shorts, capris, tanks, short-sleeves, whatever. But if you’re curious about what we’re wearing, here’s some links and suggestions! [continue reading…]
