Good Monday morning! First things first: BASEBALL IS BACK!!!!! I was so happy to watch the Royals win opening night last night!
Last week Monday, I went on a fun little [hilly and windy] run with Amy and Sandey. We ate some gnats, took some timed selfies on the trails, and had a pretty decent run! Afterwards, Sandey made buddies with Jazzy.
Most unfortunately, Tuesday after work, I broke my phone! I was texting my sister about taco Tuesday, and dropped my phone down the stairs at work. Sad day. I got my new replacement phone on Wednesday, around lunch, so all worked out.
Thursday evening, I had a 5miler with Jenn and Sandey. It as a bit less windy, and a real good run! Amy couldn’t join us because she was sick in bed. We had to celebrate by taking more selfies after we were finished. Naturally, because how do you know we ran if we don’t take selfies to prove it?
Friday, Kristen and 5 other super speedy ladies started Ragnar Southern California, running for #teamsparkle and #ragnar4rett, to raise money for Rett Syndrome, and race the ultra Ragnar So Cal. I kept up on social media through Friday evening, and when I went to bed, they were still running. Then when I woke up Saturday, they were STILL running, and finished about 30 hours after they started, relay running 190 miles. The team did amazing, and raised several tens of thousands of dollars for Rett Syndrome research. I’m so proud of Kristen and the other Team Sparkle girls.
I spent my Friday evening with Michelle! We went to Grinders Stonewall and had pizza and calzones. Then we went to the mall, and stopped at the liquor store on our way home. Friday night, done right.
Jazzy and Belle had a little play session with the pheasant feathers after we got home, too. So sweet, these two.
I may have a bit too much fun with Snapchat. You can snap me: @renfle.
Saturday morning, I tried my best to kill myself by taking 3 group fitness classes and then running with Amy. Let me explain: I wanted to go to cycle class so I went for 30 minutes, before meeting Michelle to try my first Pound class, then I stuck around for a 30 minute Kettlebell class. THEN I met up with Amy and we ran 3 miles! I’m a bit sore today, especially my lower back, probably from the Kettlebell class. I LOVED trying Pound though! “Pound is the world’s first cardio jam session inspired by the infectious, energizing, and sweat dripping fun of playing the drums.” (source)
Amy, Joshua, and I went to brunch after our run, then ran some errands. Sweet little Joshua kept holding my hand; he’s going to be heart breaker someday.
Sunday, after running with Amy, I watched a couple episodes of How to Get Away with Murder, which Jasper slept through. It’s my new show, I can’t watch enough of it! I’m about halfway through season 2, has anyone else watched?
By Sunday afternoon, I was ready for the Royals! I’m pretty sure I wore 4 or 5 Royals shirts throughout the weekend, including 3 yesterday – one to run, one to run errands, then one after I showered. I also got to rock my new KC sunglasses. It’s good to BE ROYAL! Michelle and I made some amazingly delicious, and addicting, Amaretto Slushies, and enjoyed drinking them while watching the game last night. Mmmm!

12 oz can of frozen pineapple juice
12 oz can of frozen raspberry lemonade
