Running Challenge Head’s Up

Howdy ya’ll!

Hubby and I had to take our car into the shop, so we were up extra early. I was planning to make some oatmeal so I could try out one of my new nut butters, but when hubby mentioned he thought it would be a good idea to pick up a peach pancake while we had time, I took him up on the offer.






I totally busted out my new NYC mug for some mate vana (had coffee too but photograph that earlier). Thanks Sis!


And hubby even whipped up a mini egg scramble with organic baby spinach for some protein! Thanks hubby!


After thinking it about it over the night, I’ve decided to give myself a little running challenge…

5 K by 2K11

The goal: run/walk a 5K by the end of this year. I’ll make a fun badge or something later, but for now, I’m just gonna blog it. Why? Because…if I blog it, I feel like I’ll really commit. I can’t tell all you guys I’m gonna do something and then not, right? So yea…while you’re all reading this…that means it’s real. I’m really gonna do it! This non-runner is going to RUN!

I’ll do an official post later for just the challenge with full details. 😉

  1. AWESOME !! this is so cool… maybe I can be your virtual run / walk partner from afar!! 🙂 I’m having some struggles with getting back into running, and most of it lately is fast paced walks.

    that pancake looks GOOOOOD 🙂

  2. Great, attainable challenge! I love putting things out in the blogosphere to hold me accountable…lots of motivation from the great support in this community!

  3. Good luck on your running challenge! I am sure you will rock that 5K!

    I am interested in attending some zumba classes but I don’t know where they are held besides at a fitness center. I was curious if you knew of any other places in Charlotte that I could go to “by the class” instead of buying a gym membership? If you could email me back at that would be awesome 🙂 Thanks in advance! xoxo

  4. Love the running challenge! I have no doubt you will achieve it. Running a 5K is one of my first goals for myself post-baby. After getting to the gym and not having spit up all over me, ya know? 😉

    • Whoops I clicked “submit comment” before I was ready! Anyways I also wanted to say that I checked out your dinnerware section and you have lovely taste in plateware! I also enjoyed meeting you and talking bags with you at HLS 🙂

  5. That’s so exciting you are going to start running towards a goal. In a backwards sense, I started Zumba and think of you often during the class. I wonder how different they vary, what other music styles there are? I am really enjoying it and I hope that you will enjoy the 5k you set for yourself. Turkey Trots are always fun!

  6. Love your goal–and support all around :). I think I said “Nom” to your pancake before I read it. Looks so fantastic and glad you got to try a new nut butter 🙂 Those are always the best moments…you know you are a foodie when you get excited about new nut butters hahah! Take care, Nora

  7. Hi! Is it alright that I go a bit off topic? I am trying to read your post on my Macbook but it doesn’t display properly, any suggestions? Thanks in advance! Lindsey

  8. You can totally rock the 5K! My hubby and I are running our first 5K on Saturday and we started training about 3 months ago…and you are starting out in WAY better shape than we were! Good luck!
