Ok, I know I've said this before but really, I'm going to get back to blogging.  It holds me accountable, makes me more determined, and following all of you added extra motivation for me!!

So what have I been up to??  I'm running the Triple Crown of Running which is a series of 3 races, a 5K, a 10K, and a 10Miler.  I've completed the first 2 and the 10Miler is the 22nd of this month.  I'm trying to prepare and up my distance.  My longest run this year has been the 10K which I finished in 57:30.

I'm also registered for the Kentucky Derby mini Marathon in April.  I'm especially looking forward to this race, Katie will be at the finish line passing out the finishing medals!!  I can't wait for her to be able to put one of those bad boys around my neck!!  Super Stoked about it actually.....

I also went out on the limb and registered for the Great Smoky Mountain Half Marathon in September.  It's close to my BIRTHDAY and gives me a excuse to be in the Smoky Mountains and run off a few drinks that I'm definitely planning on having for the occasion.  This run is part of the Vacation Races which is on my bucket list!!  Have you all checked these out??  OMG, what I would give to be able to complete all of these and enjoy all of these beautiful places.  I may have to hit the Lotto before it can happen, but I'm hoping it happens!!!

Let me know what everyone has been up to.  I will be in touch!  Any races?  Any competitions scheduled?  What's everyone doing??

I'm alive, and have new goals

I'm ALIVE!!!  I also have new goals!

I'm going to keep this post short and sweet however, I promise the following posts will be lengthy!! 

I decided months ago my goal would be to compete in a Bikini Competition. Yes, I'm now 35, yes, I'm a mother of two girls, and have I have those LOVELY stretch marks to prove it.  This just gives me more reason to push myself, to prove to myself that I can do this.  I can be in the best shape of my life @ 35years old. 

The competition is November 9th in Louisville, KY.  I'm no where near where I need to be to get up on that stage and feel confidant in myself.  I'm not competing to win this thing, although, that would be FABULOUS.  I'm competing to prove to myself I can do anything I put my mind to. 

I will post pictures this weekend, and then progress pictures leading up to the competition date.  Along with rants about food prep, dieting, hitting my Macros.....all those things that make me feel so much better to get off of my chest. 

Hopefully you ALL, and more will decide to follow me and my journey.  This is a lifestyle change and I'm going to get FIT! 

XOXOXOXO

Where do I start?

Where do I start?  I guess I will start with the most important thing that happened since July, we got married!

We headed to the Bahamas on July 18th, and got married, on the beach on the 21st.  Our entire trip was nothing less than amazing.




Our flights down went pretty smooth besides us running through the airport, and the prop plane that we had to board that flew us to the Great Exuma Island.  Our resort had a driver waiting for us at the airport and we were on our way.  The Sandals Resort was beautiful, and the staff was fantastic and very eager to please.  We have been on many vacations, own time shares, but never had we experienced all-inclusive luxury!!





We ate, we drank, and we ate some more......Every meal was fabulous, even our breakfast in bed.




We relaxed, played games, enjoyed water sports, soaked up the sun, took walks on the beach. We did everything we expected and hoped to do, plus more.




Stay tuned for wedding details, and pictures!!

Yes, Yes, it's me!!  I'm back!!!  I really haven't gone anywhere.  I have thought of you all MANY, MANY times but LIFE has just got in the way and I haven't made time to blog.  I'm going to change that and get back into blogging, at least a few times each week. 

I've had so many exciting things happen since last time I've posted.  The major one being that I am now Mrs. Christie Wethington.....yep, we wed on July 21st.  I have tons of pics to share also. 

Another one of those things being, I ran my 2nd half marathon, and still LOVED it. 

I got to keep today short-n-sweet but here's a pic for you guys to remember me by.....
