There were five of us Cruisers on the trail today, and I was thrilled to see my friend Chuck back after almost a year off with a nagging hip injury! I was also happy that my hubby could join us again after a little bit of a heel injury.  I had been worried that the snow on Wednesday would keep us off the trail today, but as you can see I had nothing to worry about…  It was all melted!

With about 1/3 of a mile left in our 8-mile run, Bill mentioned something about picking up the pace to the end.  We kicked it up a notch and finished really strong.  Woot woo!!!


I get a great workout sprinting ahead, so I can turn around and take a picture
of the Cruisers heading toward me!

My personal training and weight management certifications both need renewal soon, so I took care of that this afternoon.  During the past year I’ve taken these continuing education classes:   TRX Suspension Training, Optimal Nutrition for Optimal Athletes, and Dynamic Core.  All three were good, but I enjoyed the TRX class the most.  I’ll be introducing you to TRX training soon!

I happened to be alone all afternoon and evening, so I decided to hit up Chipotle for dinner.  Who doesn’t LOVE Chipotle!!!  My bowl always has white rice, fajitas, black beans, chicken, pico de gallo, corn, cheese, guacamole, and lettuce.  I skip the sour cream, and put plain Greek yogurt on it when I get home.  If I wanted to make this healthier, I could skip the white rice and cheese.

Has anyone tried these Skinny Cow ice cream sandwiches?  I picked them up at the grocery store this week, but I haven’t tried them yet.  How can anything containing both chocolate and mint not be delicious?  Right?


  • Questions:
  • Do you like to kick it up a notch at the end of your long run, or do you collapse along the side of the trail and hope a biker doesn’t run over you?
  • What’s the weather like in your neck of the woods?
  • Do you think chocolate and mint are a match made in heaven?
