Thanks to @wanderinglynn for the book and bookmark from the #BFCr2 #week4 check-in. My husband just returned to Canada from our NJ address and brought this with him. It's been so long I had forgotten what it was even about. What a lovely surprise! I hope you didn't think I was a dud for not posting my sincere thanks sooner.

wanderinglynn Oh my! I had no idea you hadn‘t actually received it. I‘m so glad you finally got it! 👍🏻 2mo

My biggest goal of this challenge to run another 5k is done!! And I took 5 minutes off my time from #bfcr2. Progress! I was good about drinking water, got in 2 runs and 1 Lagree class, and managed to get outside everyday. Also finished 2 very enjoyable reads. Feeling good at the end of week 1. #bfcr4 @wanderinglynn @Kaylamburson @LauraBeth @m

Trying to will fall into existence and get through this book. Its compelling but I often feel lost. Super thankful that my #bfcr2 Group let me stay in the chat even though I‘m not doing the challenge. I‘m in the midst of a sucky anxiety cycle and their support has been great.

Megabooks Anxiety is part of my mental illness complex. I‘m so sorry your going through that! It really sucks. Best wishes for feeling better soon! 💙 5mo

BethM @Megabooks thanks. I‘ve had GAD all my life so I know it‘ll get better but it sucks big time when you‘re in the middle of it. 5mo

cobwebmoth Sending positive thoughts and hugs! 5mo
Avanders 😖😔 so sorry for the anxiety .. so glad Litsy helps even a little! ♥️ Also, I‘m verrrry ready for fall. This 101* nonsense is wearing.... 🥵 5mo
BethM @AlaMich I like it I just spend a lot of time wondering what they‘re talking about. @Avanders thanks dear. The shouldn‘t complain about 80s but I‘m a solidly 60-65 kind of girl. 5mo
Chrissyreadit Hope you‘re feeling a little or a lot better. Anxiety sucks ❤️❤️❤️❤️sending positive vibes in your direction. 5mo
BethM @Chrissyreadit thanks friend. Today was a little better, I‘ll be busy this weekend so that should be fine. Monday we have to deal with some work stuff for my hubby again so that will probably not be so fine. But we leave for vacay on Wednesday so that will help! 5mo
Avanders Oh I totally understand... those low 60s are my sweet spot too!! 🍁🍂⛈ Keep your eyes on that vacation!! 🌈🤗 5mo

I could not stop listening to this audiobook! Usually if I‘m not doing something active I have to stop listening. I could not put this down!

This is going to sound huge, but me listening to this audiobook is the equivalent of me listening to the Harry Potter audiobooks for the first time! I JUST COULDN‘T STOP!

Katherine Center is definitely now one of my go to must read authors! Both the books I‘ve read were great!

#bfcr2 - audio 2

marleed I‘m listening right now and loving it! 5mo
wanderinglynn I went into it without knowing her and got immediately sucked in! 5mo

Chris Colfer still suffers from a case of telling instead of showing, but I could see his growth as a writer in this book. It was an enjoyable read; I liked it more than the first one, and it ended on an interesting note that left me excited for the next book in the series! Mother Goose is such a fun character, And it sounds like we will see more of her in the next one!

August has been crazy so far, so I never even got around to posting my final #BFCr2 check-in:

✔️ In Round 2, I managed to get in all of the scheduled workouts (though with some flexibility, because life), drank enough water, and listened to 60 books

I‘m keeping my goals the same for #BFCr3:

-Stick to my marathon training schedule
-Drink at least 64 oz. of water each day
-Read 50 audiobooks


TK421 Awesome results and goals!! 6mo
