This is my before photo. I weighed 15 pounds more, was exhausted all of the time and wasn't getting better at crossfit, running or life. It was time for a change.

Finally got in a long run

It's been a tough week.  My grandpa died after not eating anything for over 3 weeks.  The heat and humidity suck.  So when a friend asked me to go down to the beach for a long run on Saturday, I decided a long run was just what I needed.

If only life worked the way we plan it.  Friday night my 14 year old daughter and 16 year old son had planned to invite a few friends over.  Of course that kept me vigilant until just after midnight.  So by 12:30 or so I finally got to sleep.  Then the dog was bugging all night to go in, out, in....So needless to say when my alarm went off at 5:45 I questioned my plan to go run 10 miles.  Our friends arrived promptly at 6:15 and off we went.

The guys brought their bikes and Lisa and I ran.  We parked down in Bolsa Chica and ran to the Huntington Pier and back.  It felt so good to get a run in where I didn't have to stop for lights or watch for cars.  And it was fun to run with a friend.  So glad I went!  We definitely have to make that drive a bit more often.
