Okay, so before you scream…awe hell, go ahead and scream because I’m back!! It’s been…what?…almost 4 months! That sounds so gross when said out loud, so don’t repeat, k? Pinky promise? A big smooch on ya!

Well, there’s no quick way to recap, since I’ve been gone for 4ish months (shhh…), so what better way to spill the beans than like this:

Recap in 5,4,3,2,1…

I graduated from yoga teacher training in May! Yep, I’m officially a yoga teach!

I’m in the pink dress πŸ™‚

My fabulous teachers

Oh and I turned 30 in May as well!! You’re looking at a supercaliyogilicious 30 year old! Ha, for real though…30 IS the new 20! I feel fabulous! Why was I even worried? What like wrinkles would just magically appear on my face…silly me…

Um, what else? Kidding, I totally know what I’m gonna say next, which is…wait for it…wait for it…I’m TOTALLY a brunette now and I gotta tell ya, I’ve never felt smarter!! Ahhhh!!! Seriously though, being a brunette is brilliant (no pun intended)! Not sure I’ll ever be a blonde again! I know, right, craziness (just craziness) over here!

So Allen Stone Run-Swim-Run (you know my most faveeee raceeee in the whole entire world) happened and I placed 2nd overall female! Happiness corner! I did train hard. I did race hard. I was successful. Yay! I was 1st female/4th overall out of the ocean, so yep, happiness corner baby!

Also ran/swam another aquathlon (in Delaware) actually before the Allen Stone race and ended up 4th female overall/1st in age group (30-34, say what?)! Swam hard. Ran hard. Felt GREAT!

I’m back on Facebook! I decided to just let go of all the negativity (i.e. negative Facebook people) and embrace the love.

I started yoga therapy training in June! I graduate next summer! Ohhh the twists and turns of anatomy… πŸ™‚

My 5 year wedding anniversary happened August 14th! Wow, 5 years! Love love love him!

What’s in my future?

A triathlon! Yes siree bob, I gotta triathlon on the schedule (in May)! It’ll be my first! I’m seriously all about multi-sport events now! It’s definitely a challenge to balance running, swimming, weightlifting, and yoga, but ha, what’s one more thing to juggle?! Hello cycling!Β I’m ready. I’m willing. I’m so so ABLE!

What else? I’m running a half marathon in October, another in November, and a 5k in December, but wait, I forgot to tell you about the coolest race of them all…I’ll beΒ jumping from the Cape May Ferry @ Escape From Lewes Mile Swim in September!! This race is going to be epic!

Tell me, what’s new with YOU? XOXO

    You’re back! I thought we had lost you for good. And you’re brunette? You look fantastic! Congrats on graduating from yoga teacher training.


  7. Lauren @ ihadabiglunch

    Congrats on the yoga certification!! Also I can’t get over how good you look as a brunette. You’re making me consider going brown πŸ˜‰ and how in the world do you look that good running in a swimsuit? Do you attribute that to weights, running, swimming, yoga, or a combination of all of it? Or diet…haha


    1. Kristin

      Aww Lauren thank you so so much!! Like EVERYONE loves me as a brunette!! It’s crazy! I’ll never go back blonde!! Never ever thought I’d say that! Haha! Also, thanks for the congrats and awww you just made my day! Thanks for your sweetness! I attribute my swim suit look to my overall fitness routine, but definitely to my ab work (I’ve been hitting the abs hard), power yoga, and also my diet. I really do appreciate your kind words! You are so beautiful Lauren both inside and out!! Thanks again!! Glad to be back! I missed you!
