Another group run and my modeling debut

7 Mar

Last night, the runiverse was working in my favor and I was able to join the ARE once again for another group run. When I showed up for the season’s last Chilly Willy run, I was met by about 30 other runners, many of which I met on Saturday’s fruns as well as plenty of new faces. Once it seemed like everyone was there, we headed out for a big loop around the neighborhood and nearby SUNY Albany campus.

There are so many things I enjoy about running with other people. It’s a great way to get to know others who enjoy running and being active, conversation really makes the runs go by faster, it increases motivation, you can work on pacing by teaming up with someone a little faster/slower, it exposes you to new routes and scenery, you get to hear about upcoming races and get inside info and tips, and any time there is food at the end it’s a plus.

I started my Garmin a little late, so my stats are off, but the run was 6 miles and we finished in about 57 minutes.

A house full of runners!

There was food galore waiting for us after we finished up – tacos with all the fixings, salad, snacks, brownies, cheese and crackers, quinoa, brussels sprouts, wine, and delicious homemade hot chocolate.

Perfect way to end a winter run!

I really hope I can work more of these group runs into my schedule! (Dear runiverse, please make it happen…)

When I got home, I pulled out the yoga mat and did my 8:00 core workout using the lolo Easy Abs app. Have to stay consistent! I’m starting to see some definition – I might even have a 1 pack. I was able to do 5 of these instead of zero:

Side plank with leg abduction = mild form of torture?

After a long work day, I squeezed in a snowy mile tonight a 9:00 PM to keep up with my Mile A Day in March challenge.

Look at me on the right!

I’m so honored I was able to be a part of this project! It was so much fun to rock my wedding dress one more time and get glammed up. If you’re looking for someone to capture your wedding, engagement, family, business, or event, I highly recommend TWP! (P.S. She travels!)

      Thanks 🙂 It was fun, but harder than I thought it would be! We held that first pose for about an hour!
