    My husband's running all of them with me. =) Color Me Rad I'm doing with my girls from Zumba. It's a group of about 8-10 of us so that should be a ton of fun! The other two it will be my hubby and I.

    The Santa Monica Classic is on May 20th, Color Me Rad is June 30th, and the San Francisco 5K Progressive Marathon is July 29th. My goal is to make it to all of them and hopefully by the SF one I will be able to run the entire thing.

    I brought it up last time we had a weight loss competition last year. It was individuals and I told her that these kinds of competitions should be by percentage especially since we were up against a 400 lb man. He won, obviously. I'm not saying he didnt put in the effort, I'm sure he did... he lost 60 lbs. But you tell me how me, a woman, with 120 lbs less than him, a man, was supposed to loose 60 lbs in 8 weeks. I would have had to loose 8 lbs a week and although I'm sure that's feasible for a week or two it would not have been every single week. I was completely set up to fail which after talking to her really made me feel screwed over and kinda betrayed.

    I asked her about it for this challenge, but I just asked if she would be keeping track of pounds or percentage and she said pounds. I had already brought it up last time and explained why percentage works better but she didnt care so I'm not bringing it up again. its her challenge, she can do what she pleases. if I dont like I can simply not participate. It sucks that it affects me emotionally so much though because this is a woman that has really motivated me in my fitness journey and although I know she is a fitness instructor and nothing more I guess I grew attached to her so when the situation arose last time I felt very betrayed and now that the competition's come up again those feelings of betrayed are coming up again. Ridiculous I know.
