I am so incredibly grateful right now! The votes have been tabulated and I have become the next Mamavation mom! There were three women chosen. @AndreaEmilien was one of the moms chosen and she has become a good friend of mine through this campaign. You will be able to follow her journey on her blog, too. I do not know Lolo very well yet, but she is also one of the Mamavation moms this campaign as well. You can follow her journey on her blog here. There were awesome women competing for this opportunity and I look forward to following their journeys as the campaign continues. I wish we all could have continued on this journey together, but their journeys do not end here!
Tomorrow, the hard work begins. There is paperwork. There are workouts. There will be video logs. There will be weigh-ins (DUN, DUN, DUN!). There will be blog posts. This will not be easy, especially because my marathon training will be going on simultaneously, along with the everyday challenges of life. I am thrilled for the opportunities and I am over the moon that I will have the chance of a lifetime to change my life!
Here are some of the photos from our Saturday run. They are courtesy of my long time, real-life friend Dani, who is also in the Rockin n’ Runnin training program. She gave me permission to use these because my cell phone camera decided it did not want to take a picture of the beautiful scenery on Saturday.
