One Day More

Yes I made a Les Miserables reference. Yeah, I'm kind of obsessed. I don't judge you, you don't judge me. TOMORROW IS THE MINI! I am SO excited and I'm not entirely sure why. This is the last race of what I've deemed the "spring race season" but I just love it. It's really fun, it's in my hometown and the shirt is pretty cute this year. I also missed it last year because of my "I'm too fat to run a half marathon." mentality. So in my state of overexcitedness, and inspired by this post and this post by one of my faves Run Eat Repeat I thought I'd share with you some of my fitness idols. I have a lot so it's hard to narrow down but I'll do my best.
Pink. I'm obsessed with Pink in all ways so why should her tremendous body (even post-baby) be an exception?
P.S. - Have you watched her video for Try? Or Glitter in the Air? Amazing feats of athleticism.

Kara and Shalane. Doesn't every runner (at least) love these two? They're so gracious and talented and incredible athletes. 

In more runner news, Track and Field is packed full of bodies I want. Allyson Felix, Sanya Richards-Ross and Jessica Ennis.



Last but not least are my triathlete idols. To bike like Caroline Steffen and run like Mirinda Carfrae would be a dream come true.


So that's that. As you can see, I'm obsessed with athletes. I'm also obsessed with abs...and arms...and using the word obsessed. But don't fret! These are totally healthy idols for me because not a single one of these women follow some kind of fad diet or any unhealthy means of "getting skinny". They're fit as hell and the only way you get like that is with proper diet and exercise which is how I try to live my life. I'll likely never look like any of them but they give me a nice gauge of what I want ME to look like. And you can't blame a girl for dreaming ;)
Wish me luck tomorrow and feel free to let me in on your fitness idols!

Year 30

Is this thing on? I've been struggling with a bit anxiety out of nowhere over the past year and a half so in an attempt to keep my head from spinning I'm going to try my return to writing.

I turned 30 in February and it's seriously been my best year. Suddenly I stopped caring so much about things, and more about *gasp* my family and friends. Weird right? But in caring more about people, I also started to care less about their opinions on my life choices. That said, I am going to provide you with a VERY brief rundown of the 3 major life events happening right now:

We are buying a house! Maybe... Yay right? Back in October I found this really great house under a lease option contract that we ended up snatching up. It's in a nice, established neighborhood where *most* people own and genuinely take care of their houses. Not at the Hank Hill lawn level but I'm talking seasonal outdoor decorations and it just happens to be the neighborhood other parents bring their kids t…

Burn the Past

One of my old pastors used to say "God gave you two ears and one mouth so you could listen twice as much". I've always been a pretty decent listener. I was always in the top 5 during games of Simon Says and with a mother like mine, you needed to do your best to prevent her repeating herself. But one area where I really struggle is listening to what God says to me and what direction to go in my life. I'm a control freak. There, I said it. There have been times in my life where I've had to schedule not only when I would have free time but what I would do during said free time. I've literally put "watch tv" on my calendar. So is it any surprise that when someone says to "let go and let God" I have trouble leaving my entire life and existence to someone other than myself? Not only that, but someone who isn't a someone at all? To someone I can't see, don't understand, don't know how to listen to and just have to have blind faith…

Guess Who's Back

Sometimes my thoughts get really overwhelming and when that happens I usually have to do something active and relatively creative. I've been using coloring books since before they were cool and strangely baking is still a big go-to for me but there's also writing. Today while lamenting to the husband he suggested I write a blog to try to just get shit out. So that's what I'm doing.

We are moving back to Louisville. Yay? I guess that's still TBD. I love Louisville, I really do and I have for years but like a weird, slightly dysfunctional, long term relationship, love just wasn't enough. I felt trapped and suffocated. I had created this identity box for myself and while it worked for a while it eventually turned into my coffin. It was tiny and I didn't feel like it could fit everything I wanted to be a part of my identity. 15 months ago I was exercise and non-profit worker Rennay. That's it. When we moved I realized it was a true clean slate. Absolutely n…
