Yes Yes I did do it again... No I wasn't just trying to sing that song. I could totally use that song as my theme song for my life lol. I have now realized that I am officially crazy/insane. So you see I was just going along with my life and day to day things with work, being a kick-ass single Mom and dating and well something drastic happened! I know your thinking "holy crap what now" Well let me tell you. So I have been seeing my race friends all register and say they were going to be apart of this Spartan Hurricane Heat in Calgary next Friday night. I have always wanted to try one and it's mostly out of curiosity. Plus to experience something else that is different with the Spartan Race Community. So Spartan sent out an email about the Calgary Spartan next weekend and what we needed to know. Well in there they included a discount code... I know right it was for 50% off... that's like half price. lol *insert eye roll here* So as others that were on the fence like me all decided to take the plunge I got thinking about it more and more. Then yes I did it and registered for it. EEEEKKKKK At the time was excited and pumped then last night reality sunk in. haha yeah you know what I am talking about... that sinking holly shit what did I just fricken do feeling. Where your stomach is all up in knots and your feeling like you could throw up or be totally pumped. Yes well that was me last night. I was having crazy dreams all night too. I know I do it to myself and take full responsibility to my crazy/insane actions. So not only am I now doing the Hurricane Heat but I race at 8:30am Saturday morning completing the Sprint with my newbie buddy Paul (can't wait to break him in) and I have a time limit since my awesome son and Jr spartan in training is doing his youth spartan race which is said to be harder then previous years. Go big or go home right?? lol
This weekend is Mud Hero in Red Deer with my friend Kaire and our kids are doing the kids one as well. It's going to be one muddy race!! Woohoo I keep saying that this is my last year doing it but I am back this year for my 3rd one. I am a mud, race bling and new obstacle junkie. I admit it and not ever going to deny it. It's supposed to be hot that day we race and I am hoping my asthma co-operates for me and not act up. Least it's not a rush and just for fun. First two years was all about the time... this year is all about the fun. Camera is going to come so I hope to get some epic pictures like I do when I catch Kathleen in action. Sadly she and a bunch of others are not the same day but Kaire and I will have a blast. :)
I will try to update in between races but chances of that happening are slim. I am on holidays after the Spartans so will update sometime then.
The long weekend was amazing and relaxing and just what I needed. I got to visit with my buddy Colin and have loads of fun. We drank, went 4x4ing and shooting too. Oh yeah and we hiked in there too. Was so much fun. I really enjoy my time out there and am grateful for good friends in my life.
Have an awesome weekend making your own memories and living life to the fullest! AROO!
Until next time...

I am a single mom with one son that has been living with asthma since I was 2yrs old. I also almost died three times due to severe asthma attacks! I don't let my asthma stop me from accomplishing new goals and living life to the fullest.
