I'm back!

Today is a new day!  No humidity, slight breeze and sunshine in the Hamptons.  It couldn't be more perfect.  After turbo shopping yesterday and babying my ankle and knee for the day, I set out in my new running outfit with the bandaged ankle.  My expectations were low as I headed out over a super hilly course.
I felt great and stepped up the pace.  Wouldn't you know I did my fastest 5k yet!  I guess there is something to be said for recovery days...or buying new clothes that obviously make me faster (tighter = less wind resistance at my 12min mile pace).
Tonight I have boot camp on the  beach and will most likely be a complete cripple tomorrow but it is a blast - almost more of a social thing.  Did I mention most of my friends are iron men and women who compete at ultra distances and do crazy Mountain Bike Races and off road runs?  Their pro athlete ways have rubbed off on me and inspire me daily.  I am lucky have such great people around me who constantly encourage and guide me to be the best I can be..even though most days when we hang out it is more like that Sesame Street song - one of these things is not like the other ...I stick out like a vegan at a BBQ!
Have a great day all! I would love to hear what type of exercise you guys are doing...


  1. It's great to surround yourself with people who inspire and motivate you to be your best! I am totally in favor of that! Besides it won't be long that you'll be in shape similar to them!

  2. Keep up all that exercise and you will look as awesome as you sound like you feel. We are all rooting for you.
