We climbed a mountain. Only in our dreams. Next time maybe.


This photo is weeks old but shockingly accurate for how we looked yesterday.  Maybe not as happy yesterday and I’m sure she made it black and white because I look much better in black and white. hahhahhaa. Thanks Michelle… 😉

Michelle and I walked the Bluffs Lake Flat 14er on Sunday. The link shows you to the Flat 14er page but it doesn’t list Bluffs Lake because whatever. I can’t find anything on it. But it’s there. I have proof in a really bad photo. Don’t blame the camera blame the direction I was aiming…Michelle was standing next to me so I was at a bad angle. Now don’t get excited…this doesn’t mean we climbed a mountain. It is “converting minutes of activity such as walking, running, cycling, playing soccer or basketball into steps towards reaching the summit of a 14er.”  We apparently climbed Mt Sneffels only…flat. Yeah…it wasn’t as exciting for us either. But we got to hang out and that was cool. And for a city trail it wasn’t bad either.  Now I want to really climb another 14er.


See? Worst picture ever…But it’s proof. That’s all I needed.

After we walked my body was killing me like I’d actually climbed the sucker. So crazy. But it was really flat so it made no sense. It bothered me all day. I’ve been popping Advil every six hours but I couldn’t understand why I hurt so bad.
Perhaps if we go back in time to Saturday….
So…Saturday Sean spent the day biking and was gone the whole day. So I stayed home and weeded the yard for like…four hours. It was insane. Ten minutes into it I had the worst migraine. I quickly googled it and learned being upside down is not great for migraine sufferers. So there’s that. But I powered through to get the job done so I could then declare…

I’m never doing this again.
Sean said he’d do it and I said no. NO. You’d rather be biking, I’d rather be doing ANYTHING…I will totally pay someone to do this. He finally agreed.

So back to Sunday…I wonder why my butt and legs hurt so much??
Because I squatted for four hours. YEP.

When I got back on Sunday Sean and I went to breakfast (LePeep for the win) and then we booked it to the movies to see Wonder Woman which you must go see immediately.

Seriously.

Stop reading now. Go to the movies. Right now.

IT’S SO GOOD>
I want to see it again. It was so good and really really funny. I laughed a lot.

Talk about Wonder Woman…

At 94, Harriette Thompson becomes the oldest woman to run a half-marathon
Proof you are never too old. She STARTED running at 76. An amazing role model for everyone.

Walking/running with Norma this morning. We’re going to try starting the couch to 5k! Exciting stuff. It’s also a pretty warm day so we’ll see how that goes. But she’s pretty hard core so I think she’ll do well.

I’m running tonight, too.I was up most of the night with what felt like the flu so we’ll see if it continues or if I’m feeling better. I was given a regular waffle by mistake yesterday rather than the gluten free (it was a genuine error, they were really cool about it and it’s a risk I take when I eat out) and I’ve been unrelentingly sick since. Charcoal and rest and lots of water has helped immensely but I’m still under the weather. I’m hoping some exercise will boost me up.
Set some goals. Stay quiet about them. Smash the hell out of them. Clap for your damn self.:
