Ya mon!

Hey there RYPEness!

This back and forth weather is crazy, isnt it? But I must admit that these high 40 mornings and mid 50 evenings make getting into the run swing of things a lot easier. Ya know? After I get over that initial shock of coldness, it actually starts feeling pretty good….as long I as my fingers and ears are warm. 🙂 Definitely take advantage of getting that run fitness level back up with these run-friendly temps…make it as easy as possible, right? RIGHT!

Anyone who knows me knows how much I love to have a really good time. So, to keep up with my fitness, I think its cool to find endurance events in super cool places. First off, when I am training for the event, I have a smile on my face when thinking about the destination I am going to. Secondly, once I have completed my event in this most awesome place, I don’t feel the least bit guilty about what tasty foods (and beverages) I may indulge in.

I tri…therefore I eat. That’s my motto. LOL!

So that being said, check out what RYPE is doing: we are heading to Jamaica in December to do the Reggae Marathon, Half Marathon and 10K!!! The race is December 7th and I heard its a great time! I absolutely LOVE Jamaica! The island and its people are warm and beautiful! I have done Jakes Off Road Triathlon a couple of times and have been dying to get back down there to do another event. All I can say is….I CANNOT WAIT!

???????????????????????????????

I was perusing the internet for stuff about the race and came across this cool sistah’s video race report. Take a look see…and then plan to join us!

Run RYPEness Run…

Hey there RYPEness,

You know…I have to stand back sometimes and laugh at myself. Ten years ago, you would have NEVER heard of me trying to encourage anyone to get out and run, because I hated doing it myself! You can ask some of my buddies from high school that I played basketball with about my attitude towards running and they will tell you about countless lies I told to get out of running sprints and stuff in practice! Despite the fact that I was actually pretty fast and my father encouraged it, I quit track cause the thought of running for hours during practice turned my stomach.

But…look at me now! At age 16 I wouldn’t run to save my life, but at 44 I am doing marathons. IT’S NEVER TOO LATE TO START LIVING A HEALTHY LIFESTYLE!

A marathon finisher? Yep!

Did you know that doctors have long suspected that exercise can lift the mood and now regular exercise routines are being investigated in the context of patients with depression and anxiety? Exercise can help release endorphins and neurotransmitters that trigger positive feelings. It can also boost your confidence, take your mind off worries and lead to more social interaction if you go to a gym or come out and run with a group of really cool ladies who are getting RYPE!

Endurance events empower us, plain and simple.

So even if you are not going to accept my challenge of taking on a whole triathlon, why don’t you come out and join us for some weekly fun and easy runs? You will be amazed at how your body will react to the introduction of running, and even more amazed at how maintaining this regular routine will change your whole life for the better!
