New Year 2014!

Hey everyone!

So as with the trend, I fell off the "blogging bandwagon" after the Rock n Roll HM back in September! After that race I took a loooong and needed break from running!

Good news: I got a job!!  Hooray :)  I am now a research assistant at the Center for Virology and Vaccine Research at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, MA!  So far I am loving it, although the commute is less than enviable haha

That being said, my 10+ hour days out of the house have left me with a pretty big hole in my workout regiment.  I am still going to Zumba as much as I can and loving every minute of it!

Back in December I ran in the Santa Sightings 5k for the second year, this time with my siblings!  We has SUCH a blast!  I will make that it's own post because there are too many fun pictures to not share!

For Christmas, my boyfriend (who has now completed one round of P90X, is on to P90X+ and getting compliments everywhere he goes!)  bought me Focus T25.  It is a 25 minute/ 5 days per week for 10 weeks workout program by Shaun T, the creator of Insanity and a BeachBody extraordinaire!  The fact that the workouts are only 25 minutes is EXACTLY what I am looking for to allow me to have NO excuses when I get home to just do it!!

Along with starting T25, I went onto the BeachBody website and through my coach I purchased a one month supply of Shakeology to enter myself into an online fitness group challenge.  With the support of the other members of the group, and my coach Courtney I am really excited to have this program kick my butt!

I will still be running as much as possible, but with my weekly work schedule, it look like that will be reserved for weekends only due to the cold outside (hello Massachusetts winter) and the lack of motivation to head to the gym and dreadmill run!

I hope everyone had a great fall, a wonderful Holiday season, and is excited about 2014 as I am!

Happy running :)
