before and after: model in training for a race

If you’ve ever watched Wheel of Fortune then you know what I mean when I say, ‘this puzzle is before and after.’


Sorry that I’m jumping right to the answer of the puzzle, but I promise you that you did not land on bankrupt and I’ll even throw in a free spin!

Model in training AND training for a race

Model in training

On Monday, the hubby and I basically got to be models for a day. It was for golf attire for a company that the hubby’s friend works for. It was either pay models up to $15,000 a day or hire amateurs (aka: us) and pay us peanuts. Hey – it’s still money in our pocket!

If you’ve read my blog before you may know that my husband is a golf professional. Does this make him a golf clothing model…no! But I have always told him that he should model (typical wifey, right? haha); so this was his chance! And I’m glad he/we did it. It was fun. Worked on our tan. And we have one more day to wrap up – being tomorrow.

The clothing was nice and I can’t wait to see the pictures. I know, how vain!

Training for a race

I haven’t mentioned yet, but I signed up for my firstย half marathon (if you check my goals section, running a half is in there!). I’m nervous, scared, anxious and excited. It’s not until the end of September, but I’m a planner and want to make sure I’m doing my best to train for this thing now!

I’ve been doing some reading (since I have no clue what to do!) and saw all the different things you should be doing; working on distance, endurance, and practice running hills.

I did a little endurance today. I didn’t let my pace get under 7mph and made sure to cover good groundย belt (since I was on the treadmill ๐Ÿ˜‰ ). I finished 4 miles in 32:34 minutes. It was sweaty, but definitely a good push in the right direction that I needed!

I’m hoping the hubby will do another run with me tonight, even if that means him riding a bike beside me. Next step: work on distance! I’ll…ugh…get to those hills sometime in the near future!

I had to make this post quick as I have to go to work soon. But, hopefully I’ll have more pics to share tomorrow (being last day of photoshoot and all!)

Q: How do you train for upcoming races? Or how do you challenge your current fitness routine?

    Congrats on signing up for your first half marathon! I’ve yet to bring myself to do that but hopefully in the next year or so!
    I challenge my fitness routine by bringing new & more difficult exercises in to shake things up rather than repetitive workouts.

  8. Ooo Before and After were my favorite puzzles ๐Ÿ˜‰

    And how cool to be able to pose for some golf wear — that’s probably the ONLY way you’d get me on a golf course..ha!

  9. […] and putting it off. I would glance at races online being held in and around my area, but a) they scared me, b) were being held at a bad time or c) I was just making excuses. Luckily, I was able to see the […]
