I had to go look.  I couldn't remember if it was 2012, or 2013.  It was 2012... HOLY CRAP!   It was 2013 that I had my first NF Meetup in Chi-town for a Ruck of some sort (that I did not do) hah.

 

CLASS OF 2012 YEAAH!

 

 

 

That meetup was 2014 :D September 12, 2014 (I DID do the Ruck lol)

Pushing a stroller: still no joke. We finished in 44:43 and lil man totally ran the last little bit.

 

I love being his mom <3

 

I ran in a fasted state and then we waited for awards because my bestie won 1st place in her age group (yay!) and by the time we made it back to the burbs for breakfast it was 11:30 and I was ridiculously hungry.

I went over on my carbs, but consciously, and am allowing it.

 

It was a fantastic morning!!!

Impromptu OTF today in because #goals

 

It was good. I tried to wimp out on the treads, but held myself accountable and kicked my own ass.

 

Strength days are awesome.

Woot awesome stuff there.   Srsly, not gonna lie.  Your bacon bits is probably one of only ... 3 total bits that have made me go 'awww' and not consider bebe's/toddlers as the work of dark warlocks.     (If you've ever seen that "Don't make me hold your baby" video... that's totally me.) 

 

Great job with the run and the workouts.   You sound seriously in an awesome place right now!    RIDE THE WAVE!

Not sure how you can run, pushing a stroller, in a fasted state.  That's hard work!  I would have been in head-tearing-off-mode by the end of that!  I was so glad when he became old enough to ride his bike with me while I run... which he did maybe twice before realizing it was pretty much just a selfish scam on my part :(

Adventures in Ham-Land

 

I got another 14er this weekend (Quandary Peak). It was great- took longer than I anticipated but I still got it. (7.5 hours of hiking)

Needless to say, my calves are giving me charlie horses about every 5 minutes (yes I am remedying this haha) 

 

I made it to OTF this morning, but it was definitely a green day...

 

Gave myself a few more carbs on Sunday for the hike, as I am not fully fat adapted, I needed to supplement for the time being.

Anyway- onward and yonward!

Well, NJ's highest point is 1,804′. But we drive a few hours so we can get to the NY Adirondacks and a few more hours to get to NH White Mountains semi-regularly where we get the big guys.

Texas' highest point is Guadalupe Peak at 8,751' above sea level, but it's really dang far (on the border with NM). We have the hill country, which is beautiful, but not mountains.

When you’re in Minnesota you’ll be pretty close to Eagle Mountain*. It’s a bit over 2000 feet and is a nice hike.

*There are two, you want the one that borders Voyagers.

Mr. Raxie and I went there on our SW driving adventure a few years ago. It's GORGEOUS wowzer.

 

Sorry for the thread jack Hammi - how are you doing?

Well soon after I posted this thread we started the process of selling our home, buying new construction, packing, purging, moving.

Needless to say, every spare second has been spent in this process.

I would say I closed the challenge meeting all but my keto goal. I closed my OTF challenge with an egg fast, so maybe I did better than I feel like I did :)

 

Taking a brief reprieve to get this move done (August 29 we close on the new) and then I'll reassess and redirect.
