Run For It!!

I love to exercise. It's good for you, it makes you feel good AND it makes you look good. With that being said, I hate running. These short stubby legs weren't made for it. However, I also hate being bad at things sooo I've been practicing.

Now Gloria...well, she is ALL about the running. And I don't mean the couple miles that I do. I mean half marathons and nonesense. She is even preparing for her first full marathon.

The point is...we all know the key to great running is....MUSIC. HA! you thought I was going to say practice. pssshaw. practice smactice. (but really you do need to practice.) So, we'd like to share our current running playlists with you in case you were looking for some inspiration for your own runs....or if you need someone's music taste to criticize, doesn't matter to me.

Gloria's Running Playlist

I'm passionate about running. I never think about how long I've ran or what mile I'm on. I think about the now just getting lost in the moment listening to my favorite tunes :) 

This week's marathon training schedule looks like this:
Mon- 3 miles, Tue-Rest, Wed-5 miles, Thur-3 miles, Fri-Rest, Sat-8 miles, Sun-Rest  
Pretty easy week right!? Krystal disagrees hahaha. One day I'll convince her to run a marathon or at least a half marathon with me. It is now part of my bucket list. No pressure Krystal! ;)

So the tunes that I will be blasting in my ears this week are...

1)Jessie's Girl by Rick Springfield 
2)Don't Stop Believing by Journey
3)Hungry Like the Wolf by Duran Duran
4)Living On A Prayer by Bon Jovi
5)Girls Just Wanna Have Fun by Cyndi Lauper
6)You Shook Me All Night Long by AC/DC
7)You Make My Dreams by Hall & Oates
8)Total Eclipse Of The Heart by Bonnie Tyler
9)Where Did Our Love Go? by Soft Cell

and last but not least...

10)Eye Of The Tiger by Survivor    hahaha I just had to!

In case you didn't notice I made this week's playlist 80's theme! Who doesn't love the 80's!?!?

Good Friends Are Hard To Find

Since this is a new beginning and all, we'll start where all stories should start...the beginning. Gloria and    I first became friends in 2008 in New York where we were attending a Navy prototype school. This is us then.

We had a fantastic time there, we went hiking here in the fall:

And slid up and down in the snowy New York winter here:

Then the day came when our orders arrived. On the bright side, we both got Virginia! On the down side we got Virginia. Just kidding all you Virginians out there...we just prefer the West coast. I got stationed on the newest carrier in the Navy and Gloria...well, Gloria got stationed on the oldest. 

We did find time to hit the beach and pretend like we were on the west coast...


Then we got to work...we're not gonna talk about work here. But this is me driving the ship, be AFRAID! (this is NOT what I do for a living. I work in the reactor plant, as does Gloria)

And this is Gloria, trying to convince herself how much she loves the Enterprise....yeeaaahhhh...

But now, here we are 3 years later getting ready to get the orders we've been waiting for...FREEDOM! (Nothing against the service, we're proud to have served but are certainly ready to discover what else the world has to offer) 

So, this is our blog of our new adventures as we transition from military to civilian life. We can't wait to share all of our experiences with you!
