...trying to get back into the posting swing. I have *dozens* of photos of my workouts from the past few weeks. But rather than bore you with those I will upload the following images instead - proof that sometimes the 'exercise' I do is purely in the name of fun.

And getting really, really filthy.

This is my sister, myself, my niece (her daughter) and my 'grand-nephew' (?)
Color Me Rad 2013

Color Me Rad came to town, and being ladies who had previously conquered a Tough Mudder event, we figured we had to check it out. To give you an idea of how much color gets thrown around at these events:

Before
Kaden Before

After
Kaden After

Yeah, he is not a blond. That is all orange powder (that he happily bathed in post-race when we discovered we had left over color-bombs in our pack.

*chuckle*

Now, if anyone has ever figured out how to MAKE THAT COLOR STAY on their white shirts, I'd love to know your secret. The dye and cornstarch washed right out despite pre-laundry treatment with vinegar.

*sigh* Guess we'll just have to run again next year! :D

Crossfit. It is apparently soul consuming.

What I mean by that is, I really like this style of exercise. But as [livejournal.com profile] vanessa_lynne pointed out in a recent entry, it drains almost every drop of energy I have at the end of my days. This is normally not a huge issue, but with CoCo looming I need to start carving out time on the weekends to work on costume projects. I have a plan, we'll just see how well that plan works.

Oh, and I am adding to the distraction pile by introducing the following element the first weekend of July:

Meet Nigel...
Nigel Bed

Nigel Leap

Nigel - Selfie (he's down with the young crowd like that)
Nigel Eye

So, in addition to Crossfit, I have added morning runs - Every Day - into my schedule. Because both my 'old man' (Fritz) and the new guy (Nigel) will need some exercise and training on a consistent basis to make sure that we have a happy doggy home. And then there are all the other 'puppy extras' when it comes to time consumption.

You know what? Totally worth it.

Don't be shocked when I show up to Gala in a modified hotel sheet.

*chuckle*
