Why hello there progress...

Not even a repeat performance of the turkish get ups on Thursday could keep me down! Seriously, I don't know why we had to do them two sessions in a row.  I think that is some kind of sick trainer joke.  ...or maybe I should actually conquer them and then we wouldn't have to do them as much.  Hmmm.....

Y'all this clean eating thing is sticking with me this time.  Whew...  so much relief.  I can see a difference and the jeans don't have to stretch as far right now.  I really think this is the longest I have gone without Diet Coke since birth so that is the real miracle right there.  Seriously.

So last week I did a 5k to support one of my friend's charities.  The start time was 2:00 pm which is pretty awesome.  I can get behind a race that doesn't require you to set an alarm clock.  The 5k was an out and back and decently hilly so we'll call it a good challenge.  The last 1/2 mile or so I pass this 8 year old on a hill.  He is quick to pass me back.  For the record, I did not chase him down for the purpose of passing him but he ran out of steam in the last 1/8 of a mile or so.  As I go past him I give a little "good job, let's go buddy" and he just looks at me.  He finished right behind me and I see him again walking up the stairs to where they were handing out awards.  I congratulated him and asked him if it was his first 5k.  He says it was his 11th and he wasn't too happy with his time (we were around 25 minutes).  "My fastest time is 17 minutes".  Wow.   I guess he was a little off that day :)    

The good news is we both took home first in our age groups and a sweet hand painted award.


No Diet Dr. Pepper in 14 days.  Now that deserves an award.

outstanding! I'll take an AG award any way you can get one, even if it does mean publicly humiliating an 8 year old. That might even be a bonus.

Unlike other high precision watches that rely on external replica watches signals or need to sent away for recalibration after a battery change, Precisionist watches use lithium hublot replica batteries that can be as easily replaced as those in other quartz timepieces. The hour and minute hands have a distinctive, curved design, while the simple red seconds counter again features the brand rolex replica sale as its counterweight. Those who are thrown into fits of rage or bouts of enfeebled snark by rolex replica sale like this will have plenty to say, but in my opinion, the dial and case look cool, refreshing, and fun. Arabic hour markers with faux patina lume. The attractive syringe hands and central chronograph seconds have faux patina lume applied too. I will consider using 2018 replica watches for my next watch purchase. It would have been helpful to know that before going through all the other steps.
