I just wanted to pop in and say hi....admit that I've neglected my blog...and promise that this time I have a plan to get back on track to consistently share all the fitness, food, and family of 3 fun that I want to share. My goal will be to weekly post a wrap up of everything that's going on including workout tips, running updates, and some family fun too. How does that sound?
It might be hard to believe but little Bear is 4 months old! It's crazy! She has grown so much and what I love most is how alert and aware she is now.
Kyle and I have been trying to establish a routine and balance the bear, the gym, my business, travel, RunDisney, and our commitment to healthy, fit living. It's been a challenge and a learning experience, but I think we're getting there. I've never eaten so much take out food in my life..but..we're getting there.
Early in September I took off to California for the 10th anniversary Disneyland Half Marathon weekend. Kyle, the Bear, and even my Mom stayed at home and I got to hang out with 2 of my best girl friends during the work weekend. They were both very unimpressed with the size of the Disneyland castle...ahem.....
It was a great weekend and it felt so good to be reunited with my RunDisney friends and family.
I took a trip down Florida's turnpike to Miami for several TV appearances and met Ryan Eggold from NBC's The Blacklist.
I've also been back to working out and running. My first race as a #MotherRunner is coming up quickly. It's the Space Coast Half Marathon on November 30. Don't expect any speed records. My goal is to get in the miles of training to finish healthy and then up my speed work game for my next race in January.
Last weekend I traveled again and headed to Nashville for the annual national dietitian conference called FNCE. It was tough to get away, but a really productive work weekend and a great inspiring reminder to keep pursuing my passion and doing what I love.
That's what we've been up to. I'd love to know what's going on in your world!
I'll be back soon and we'll get this blog back in action ASAP!
Tell me something good going on with YOU!
Love and reconnecting,
Carissa & Kyle
