...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:

Kaden Before

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.


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.
