My BFF, another Jenny, was my walking buddy and my weight loss partner way back when; now she's mostly my co-conspirator and partner in crime. She did not abandon her fitness efforts quite as completely as I did, and set a goal for herself this year to run a 5K every month.
For October she got the fun idea to take part in Pretty Muddy, a women's only obstacle 5K, and rope all of our gal pals - fit and not so much - into doing it with her. This is a good choice because, between the obstacles and the mud, it's less about being speedy and more about having fun. At least I hope so.
I confess, this is part of my motivation when I get on the elliptical. They take pictures and videos at these races, and I don't want to embarrass myself! I haven't signed up yet since I missed the coupon code for a discount back in May, but I'm heading over there as soon as my next paycheck clears because Obstacle Racing Media is offering a discount code for $20 off!
