Want to share the latest on the Hot (Sweaty) Mamas circuit. First for those in the Twin Cities, I'll be at Tangletown Crossfit on Saturday, October 29, at 11 a.m. for a donation-based workout (scaled to all levels) to raise money to help the family of Lorene Nystrom, who is battling cancer. Whatever you can pay for the workout, plus proceeds from Hot (Sweaty) Mamas will go to the family. You know how I feel about Cross Fit. Now's a great opportunity to try it out!
Next week I'm going to San Diego! Anyone out there in or around San Diego?
First I'll be part of a fun mom and kids event at Kidville in Carlsbad on Friday morning, November 4, from 10:30-12:30. Then I'll give the Hot (Sweaty) Mamas pep talk at the Athleta Iron Girl 5K/10K packet pick up at the San Diego Road Runner Sports at 6:45 that night.
I'll be running the Athleta Iron Girl 5K in Del Mar on Sunday, November 6, and hoping that my track workouts pay off with personal record. I'm not talking about a PR after kids, I'm going for the lifetime PR, which was set 20 years ago.
I feel compelled to be so bold because I was recently in the presence of Olympian Carrie Tollefson, when she interviewed Laurie and I about Hot (Sweaty) Mamas. Speed can rub off, right? We had a great chat, which is part of a two-part webisode on her website, www.ctollerun.com. Here's a look at part I.
