I'm not going to pretend like Rush and I have been working out and eating well all summer. That would be a big fat (ha ha see what I did there?) lie. But there have been some serious, positive life changes happening, so that's good. Did you read my schedule for this summer in the last post? Yeah, we probably went to the gym a total of six times over the past few months. We ARE trying, and that's the good news, plus the food that we eat now is way better than before this journey began.
And now, I'm happy to announce, we just signed up for the Color Run! It's a 5k on Labor Day. Surely at least one logical person will read this and think, "no way can Emily do a 5k..." You are not wrong. I don't think I could possibly train up to running a 5k in a month. But that is not the point! This is going to be a fun day and my precious husband has promised to get me through it. Right there on the website it says: "You can run, walk, crawl, or cartwheel it if you wish!" And believe me, I realize I might finish dead last.
The Color Run!!
We've also decided to finally take the 10-day challenge that inspired our healthy and happy journey. Our 14 week mini pledges went great. It definitely makes you realize what is in your food! Thank goodness for Pinterest and all the great recipes available! I'm still working on the timing. We might start 11 days before the run so that we can celebrate that day, or we might use the run as our kick-off and start it the day after. We'll see.
The 10-day Pledge
As always, we would love for anyone reading this to join us in our adventures. Call me, text me, email me, Facebook me, or whatever! I'd love to know if anyone else has tried the real food challenge. And I'm sure some of you would enjoy the Color Run. We WILL cross that pink finish line! Even if I'm crawling.
