Running in the DARK

The heat here is EFFING killing me... It's been in the upper 90's lately with a heat index of at least 100 on the daily. Ugh!

 Since I am NO morning person, I have had to take my training out into the dark summer nights.... just to beat the heat [kinda]

I love summer, but running at 9pm is seriously taking a toll on my sleep schedule...
Not to mention I'm scared out there all by myself.
Hoping this weather will take a chill pill soon!
I know I probably shouldn't be jamming out while running in the dark... but I cant help myself. I love my new playlist!

 Its upbeat, fun, and I feel like its helped me push myself through the rough patches in my runs....

Check it out below. May be a few you'd want to add to your list. :)

Get a playlist! Standalone player Get Ringtones

 If you have any songs that are a must on your workout playlist, I'd like to know about em! The more music I can cram on to this list the better. Don't be shy! :)

Hope you all are having a good week!! 5 more days of full time work for me- OH YEA!

p.s. I wanna say HAPPY 28TH BDAY to my WONDERFUL hubby. He's getting SO old. ha! I love giving him a hard time!

Learning Some Photography

My girlfriend Koree gave me the opportunity to put my eye
for photography to use this past weekend. Of course our studio was make-shift , but I think it did the trick...

Koree is almost full term... She really wanted some maternity shots done, but since they are trying to cut corners where they can financially she passed on the professional photographer and let me take a few... I was happy to be a free alternative :)
Here are a few that I've edited so far. What do you think?

p.s. I am slowly but surely getting back on track with my training... it is HARDER than I thought it would be to get back to it after slipping up... whheeww... :)
Hope you all are well.
