I have been waking up with pain in my right arm every morning since CLLAW. Oops. We even did a warm up before the event, but I guess I didn’t warm up enough (or stay warm) throughout the event. Anyway, if I take some ibuprofen and stretch out/warm up my elbow, and the pain doesn’t return until the next morning. But if I do CLLAW again, I’m going to host some arm wrestling parties leading up to it to better work those muscles.
Kathmandu Yogi. I still plan to write a whole post about how awesome the Fear Paradox Summit was last week, however, I wanted to give a shout out to one of the vendors. There were a few women-owned vendors/small business owners with tables at the event. I chatted with the owner of Kathmandu Yogi for a little bit, and ended up buying a couple mala bracelets (one for me, one for a friend). Everything she sells is fair trade and ethically made by female artisans living in Nepal. Not only is her stuff beautiful, but it felt good knowing that I was supporting women with my purchase.
Upcoming Races. I haven’t had much in the way of a race schedule in awhile, but my husband was talking about the races he was interested in doing, and I think we might sign up for (or … think about) these races:
- Run Mag Mile (I can’t not do it) – 10K for me, 5K for him
- Carerra de los Muertos 5K – so close to home
- A Turkey Trot – probably this one
- S-No-W Fun Run (although we said we said we’d run it this past January too)
- F3 Half Marathon
What races do you have coming up?
Are you willing to pay more to support certain businesses – small or local or woman-owned or benefitting a certain cause? I tried to do all my holiday shopping last year at locally-owned businesses within a few miles of my home.
Have you ever unexpectedly injured yourself or had soreness? I once injured my wrist playing soccer when another player kicked the ball almost directly into my wrist. Was not expecting that.
