1st Women Run Memphis Run

Hey! How are y’all? Wonderful I hope :) All is well here, I have been productive today although I was totally lacking motivation this morning. But I picked it up and have got a lot accomplished!!

Last night I had my first run with the Women Run Memphis group. I was a little nervous to be with the advanced group, but it went well! We ran a 5k and it was definitely probably one of the hardest I’ve done!! The temp was still in the high 90’s with lots of humidity! Being a morning runner, I’m not used to these scorching temps! But I made it and even got to run with a friend I used to work with (hi Shelly!!). I was drenched in sweat and exhausted when I finished but felt good! Next week we start hill work and speed work! I’m excited for that! It’s so fun to run with groups and to have coaches encouraging you along! I wish I could have that on every run! Haha :)

Today I had planned on biking but I was totally NOT feeling it at all. I just felt physically tired. But I told myself to go out for a few minutes and see how you feel. Sometimes this works and my workout turns into a great one, and sometimes it just sucks. And today, it sucked. It was hot and sunny and windy. Not fun at all. So I just cruised around a few neighborhoods and called it a day after about 20 minutes. I came back and walked 2 miles on the treadmill while watching The Bachelorette from last night. Sometimes you just gotta listen to your body. For me, if I’m not into a work out then it’s better to leave it and try again the next day!

And speaking of The Bachelorette… craziness!! I think they try to make it more and more dramatic every season! Haha. But I think she’s ended up with 2 really great guys! I don’t know which one I like more? What do you think, Chris or Roberto?

I have another really yummy looking Little Bitty Bakes recipe to try out tonight! Can’t wait to share it with y’all!! Hint- it’s not dessert!! Have a great day!!


  1. Sounds like a lot of fun to run with a group/coach. I would love to have that. I hear you about the heat and humidity. I don't remember it being so tough...or maybe I have just become a big baby?

  2. I always think it is harder to run with other people. Great job though. I bet it's great connecting with other runners in your area.

    Hope you had a great day Niki!

  3. You looked like you were doing great when I saw you :)

  4. yeahh for finding a running group. I always push it a little harder and that's part of what keeps me going back, I know I'll work harder with them!
