Team BAM ran as The Three Little Pigs. And it totally was a very, very fun race. It was muddier than the one I did two years ago and the obstacles were still intact and more fun.
It was in Spokane, so we headed up around 4:40am, as we were in the 8am heat and our packets hadn’t arrived. It was the perfect temperature out. And just warm enough that the cold water on some of the obstacles wasn’t torture.
Hi, my name is Julie, and I’m so excited to be here!
I don’t really know my way around, but I’m still excited to be here. I blog over at gracelaceandiron.blogspot.com. I love meeting new people, and trying new forms of exercise and healthy foods. I’m still relatively new to blogging, so I would appreciate tips, advice, etc. I look forward to meeting you!
I enjoy a good strength training session and love a good healthy and satisfying meal that doesn’t break the bank. In 2011, I discovered that a gluten sensitivity was causing many of my health problems, so I’ve gone g-free with my hubby, and never looked back.
I splurge once in a while, but for the most part, avoid gluten. I’m preparing to return to college for a B.S. in Nutrition, and love to write up workouts for people. I take my training seriously, but not too seriously. I love to sing, and play piano, in fact I hold a bachelor’s degree in music with a minor in strength and conditioning.
There will be more on my story later, but in the meantime, please check out my blog, and I look forward to meeting you!
Friday was a long run, 11 miles, and it was seriously the wettest imaginable run by the end. But my legs felt good, my lungs felt great (especially considering I’ve been fighting a cold) and I was soooo pleased with how good my foot felt.
Afterward was spent getting mani-pedis with my BAM running ladies and my girlies. Afterward Mandy, Amber and their significant others came over a little BBQ. Was a nice evening.
Saturday the we drove down to Ontario, which was a fun trip. That evening was the race. It was at dusk, so the light up tu-tus and glow gear Amber prepped us with weren’t quite glowing yet. But after we looped downtown Ontario and finished up the race everyone was glowing. It was a flat course and fun to do.
