Nobody cares if you're not a good dancer. Just get up and dance. The same holds true for racing. Whether first or last, we all cross that same finish line. Just get out there and run.

Not Running Related, Not Even Zumba Related

So, I caved and have become one of those moms. What moms you ask? The moms we all see on facebook posting the exploits of their child's Elf On The Shelf. I am a little ashamed of myself because I have become the mom that I would have made fun of when B was a baby. Now, every night I find myself scrambling to remember to move the damn thing, or setting up what ever prank. It's been fun, I won't lie, but I am ready for that damn elf to take it's little peppermint loving a** back to where it came from. Here are some of Buddy's exploits.

She started out innocently enough.

Messing up a craft was still pretty tame.

Then she did this...

I think she was hitting the elf wine when she decided to hang from our decorations


Looking pretty pleased with herself

This one made B super angry, apparently this was going too far. It wasn't the undies, it was the fact that Buddy was in her room.

Zumbatomic Training

On Sunday, I attended Zumbatomic training. What is Zumbatomic you ask? Well, it's a specially designed Zumba program for kids. Being a mom, of course, I was interested in this because it's a great way to get kids into Zumba but in an age appropriate way. The training was with ZES (Zumba Education Specialist) Marcie Gill, she was an incredible instructor. This training was a ton of fun and I cannot wait to start teaching this program. What's not to love?! It's a great way to get kids moving and making it feel like a little party, plus it's not a huge commitment like most kids activities tend to be. The possibilities with it are awesome because they go above and beyond just having classes for the kids at a gym or community center.

Not only did I get licensed to teach this program, but I got to meet, network, and make friends with some awesome Zumba instructors from the Atlanta area and a few from Alabama. Getting this opportunity, just solidified in my mind that I have to find a way to make it to Convention this year. Have I mentioned lately that I LOVE ZUMBA?

Giveaway Winners and Dancing On The Treadmill

So, my two winners according to are Michel from Baby Weight My Fat Ass and Trish from Begin Again and Again and Again.... Send me an e-mail at by Friday Dec. 9th to claim your prize.

Wednesday, Friday's and Saturday's runs were on the treadmill. I had my music right for all of these runs, all different playlists that I had tweaked for each run. Well, I may or may not have jammed out a little on the treadmill, it helps because I have a bit of a hard time with the treadmill. I have been known to dance during a race or an outdoor run but never a full on dance on the tready. Imagine my excitement when I saw these videos....

It would be my luck that I would probably bust my butt trying these at the gym, I'd be the youtube video that goes viral of the fat chick who wipes out. Plus, I'm not sure Coach Lesley would approve.

Aside from the treadmill dancing, I've been enjoying the scaled back running schedule. I needed a little breathing room. I'm back to training twice a week with Amy, and even hitting up a few Zumba classes as a student which is refreshing for a change. It gives me ideas for my classes and helps me become a better instructor, plus it's just plain ol' fun for me. I've also been working on a Toys For Tots Zumba event, so if you are in the Atlanta area and are looking for something to do this Friday night, please join me for  a fun party for a great cause.
