Last Saturday, I completed my official Spinning® certification class. Our Master Instructor Angie was really knowledgable, thorough and her passion was fun to be around for nine straight hours. I learned so much, not just about Spinning®, but some new (to me) training methods (more on that another day). I came home with my head literally spinning from all the new ideas and the rides I want to create! Exhaustion at its finest. Next steps... I feel like I need to study and process everything a bit more. I'm hate feeling unprepared for anything, so I need that mental confidence before I perch myself up before a real live class. I have lots of practice yet to do before I take the official Spinning® Instructor test.

Mother's Day, my kids got me a new
A local running group in Peoria hosts a Kids Run Series every spring. This is our second year participating and we absolutely love it! It's basically a mini track meet every Monday night. All the kids pin on a bib and can run as many heats as they want (1/4mile, 1/2mile, and 1mile) within their age groups. Afterward they get a ribbon with their race time, along with cookies and juice. For $2 a kid, you can't beat this family fun! This week, my husband and I extended it into a Family Fitness Night. After the kids races were done, we set out for our own 3 mile run - one kid in the stroller and the other on her bike. We didn't eat supper until 8pm on a school night, but it was such a fun night with my little family. My heart bursts with joy when I get to share my running passion with the ones I love most.
