Wellness & Workout

You know that feeling when you go back to some place you have not been in a while? And just when I thought it, Swarm let me know that I have not been back since August (thanks a lot for making me feel worse).

I pat myself on the back for a job well done: I woke up early and GOT UP (comfy blankets, you’re no good for me, we may need a divorce).

I had 30 minutes before the class started and did a few exercises with the body bar for my back, glutes, legs, chest, and back. Just in time for Shelly Heitman‘s Zumba class. I wondered why some students took the 2.5 pound discs. Oh, here we go… raise the roof. Stephanie and Miss Motivational would be proud of this move :0)

During one of the songs, the Pon De FLO came out in me (by the way, I recently became certified to teach this class type). Hands like guns, pew pew. It reminded me of Kappas.

Color Run. Happiest5k 🙂 ♥

How did I hear about this run? I was scrolling through Facebook around Dec 2012/Jan 2013 and saw an interesting volleyball profile picture. Being the volleyball lover I am, I wanted to see the actual photo. Two profile pictures earlier, it was the color run. It looked like so much fun that I wanted to run it for 2013 (just in time for making the year’s bucket list).

I subscribed to the newsletter and followed them on Twitter, since the NYC date was not out yet. When it was announced, much to my dismay, it was during my Tokyo/Seoul trip. I thought, “time to defer to 2014.”

Then, randomly, I get a text from my friend about joining her team. I thought it was full for June! Turns out there was a Sep date and Color Me Blueeeeeeee I joined.

The run was definitely NOT 5k, but it was definitely colorful & fun.

The cornstarch was more difficult to scrub off than I thought. I sprayed my tee shirt with vinegar to iron, but ran out of the house before I could iron. I woke up the next morning to a sparkly white tee; thanks grandma 🙁

white water rafting
white water rafting

Last Sunday I went white water rafting! This is the third summer I’ve gone to the same place (Whitewater Challengers) and the second I’ve gone with LivingSocial. I love that referring 3 people with your link makes your ticket free (the savings that we all shared, of course).

I recruited two lovely people to join our group (Joe + Kristen). Joe was a great captain and steered us the right way while Kristen was a great paddler and lovely mood setter.

We got stuck on a small rock once and cruised through all the bigger waves and rocks. We were so good :0)

Did I mention it was drizzling also? Perfect adventure weather. It seems that it must rain the times I go whitewater rafting.

Until next year! Anyone with recommendations for places with Level 4+, would appreciate it.
