Relay Running Fun
I am getting ready to head out to the Vermont 100 on 100 Relay with 5 other awesome bloggers. Our Team is Team Air Supply and we are all super excited to run a total of 100 miles along scenic Route 100 in Vermont this Saturday. The run has some great views and epic hills including a leg up the mountain access road to Killington Mountain.
In other news my kids just came back from 3.5 weeks at summer camp. Not only did they have a great time but they have grown like weeds.My daughter celebrated her birthday at camp and my son has his birthday coming up this week so we celebrated when they got back from camp. Now it is time to prep for back to school and the start of fall sports. My daughter will be trying field hockey for the first time this fall and my son will be continuing with soccer. Hopefully they will both love it!
On the blogging front I want to give a huge shout out to KT Tape who named me to there list of most helpful running bloggers. It is an honor to be selected for this list. I am listed under Food and Health along with so many other awesome bloggers!
I went to my chiropractor while I was home visiting my parents. The reason for my visit is a nagging shoulder/back issue that I have been experiencing for the past several months. I have ongoing pain/soreness in my left shoulder blade that sometimes radiates around to the front. I am also experiencing numbness/tingling in three of my fingers in my left hand. My chiropractor was concerned that I may have some sort of a disc issue going on which would be a huge bummer. My next steps are to try to get in to see a PT and to have some X-rays and possibly an MRI done to see what is going on. Sadly this means I am probably off of the CrossFit Train for now and may have to take a little break from running to as every step you take when you run compresses your spine. I am hopeful this does not affect me for the upcoming Reach the Beach Relay in September. and The Smuttynose Rockfest Half Marathon that I am doing in October.
