April 22, 2013 at 7:39 pm

Just a quick post to let everyone know that the Mom Power Team is now accepting applications! We are looking for just a few awesome ladies (mom or not) to join our team. I have to say that I LOVE this group of women. In the five months that this group has been together we have really forged a strong bond of friendship, supporting each other in so many ways. I am so honored to have been a part of the inaugural team, and I can’t wait for some more awesome girls to join us. We are a tight-knit group…only nice people should apply (this means you if you are reading my blog, haha).

“To bring the lasting lifestyle of real health & fitness to women world-wide, in a fun and educational way, and prove the strength, confidence and beauty of being a woman.”

We have many exciting things planned for the future and we are looking for a few more FITNESS SOCIAL MEDIA ROCK STARS to join our ranks.   Are you right for the Mom Power Team?  Ask yourself these questions…

Good luck!

Iron Girl Clearwater 5K 2013 and other stuff

April 20, 2013 at 10:46 am

I think I’m forgetting how to blog. But I don’t want to forget anything so here goes another tl/dr catch-up post, mostly pictures:

Last weekend I did the Iron Girl 5K. I say “did” because I mostly walked it. This was my fourth Iron Girl event, and every one has been so different. I think they are constantly trying to tweak the logistics in Clearwater to include the beach but facilitate parking. It was great this year…easy parking with the start and finish in Coachman Park. Doing the 5K was awesome (I’m over half-marathons). I saw so many friends and had a blast.

I am slacking so badly at blogging that I keep coming across photos that never saw the light of the internet…like these from the “Father’s Lunch” at Mack’s school Friday before last:

We walked to school a bunch last week…it’s going to be sad not to be able to walk to school after we move. Chewie will be the most sad, but I’ll just have to take him for other walks instead. I just love killing two birds with one stone (exercise and getting Mack to school).

The hamster and beagle t-shirts are now Mack’s favorites and he wears them as soon as they are clean again.

Monday I headed to North Shore pool and swam 1600 yards.

Tuesday night I went to the last Restore the Core class of the session with Christie of Karna Fitness. None of the other ladies showed up (slackers) so I got to have a personal training session!

On Wednesday night I headed out to Pass-a-grille (St. Pete Beach) to do a one-mile open water swim with the Mad Dogs Triathlon Club. I met my friend Tori there and we had a good swim. It had been a while (November!) since I did an open water swim, so I was happy to be able to get one in before the St. Anthony’s Triathlon next weekend.

Thursday night I went to Ruth Eckerd Hall with a bunch of my IRunMommies friends (who are all Baby Boot Camp franchise owners or instructors…thanks for including me in the VIP group Christie!) to see Jillian Michaels “Maximize Your Life” tour. She was great. I love her so hard. She was so candid and genuine. We got to stay for the Q & A afterwards which was led by Janice, Jillian’s podcast producer. I LOVE Jillian’s podcasts and Janice, and they were just as hilarious on stage together as they are on the podcast.

Last night I went to a Yelp Elite event at FitLife Foods in Tampa. My friend Beth went with me, but since I have forgotten how to be a blogger I somehow didn’t get a photo of the two of us last night! But here we are at the Brookwood Carnival a while ago…she’s on the right. This was our relay team for the TriRock Clearwater Triathlon last fall (my friend Nikki is in the middle):

Thanks for being my date last night Beth!

It was a fun Yelp event. We got to go behind the scenes and sample lots of FitLife’s healthy fare. I have blogged about FitLife several times already (like here) and I love them.

Well, I think that’s it. At least until I discover some unpublished photos on one of my half-dozen cameras. Still up to my ears in boxes and dust. Our closing is in 10 days!
