Whoa, July, where the heck did you go? This month really flew by, which means here are my top 12 favorite posts from July!
Four Years with Mal
As cheesy as it may sound, four years ago today, I married my best friend. Mal rules for a lot of reasons, but my favorite is that we always have so much fun together””whether it’s doing CrossFit, traveling, drinking beers, or simply making up spur-of-the-moment games to play together””we always manage to make each other smile.
Missed Part 1? Here it is! On the morning of the Boilermaker 15K, our plan was to leave the house at 6:15 AM to get everyone to the start line on time. I have a whole pre-race routine, so I woke up at 5:15, ate breakfast, got dressed, and did my thing.
Good Times with M & m
Yesterday ruled. I had such a nice time with M & m! Breakfast My morning started with a bowl of Greek yogurt mixed with fresh blueberries and trail mix. After breakfast, I got myself ready to go to CrossFit which included mixing up an amino acid drink to take with me.
The Simple Things A-Z
I saw this post on Janetha’s and Lindsay’s blogs last week and I thought it was really sweet, so I decided to do it on CNC. The simple things in life really are the best things in life! A – Almonds. I’m pretty sure I’m going to turn into one at the rate I eat them throughout the day.
Hi, guys! Let’s get right to it. Fun day to recap! Breakfast Our friends Erin and Ping (pug) came to visit bright and early yesterday morning. Erin (and Ping) had already eaten breakfast, so Mal made a couple of bagel egg and cheese sandwiches for us.
That “Uncomfortable” Feeling & New House Project
Hi, guys! I hope you’re having a fabulous Tuesday! Workout As expected, today’s WOD was a good one: For time: 2000 meter run 2000 meter row Ever since the Boilermaker 15K, I haven’t run very much (that race kicked my butt), so I was psyched to get out there and run today.
