Got a little more in you for a few rounds of #DailyAbs today? I’ve been doing this everyday and dang, I can feel it working! Just a few rounds will fire up that core so push through it!

Feeling tight or have some pain somewhere? It happens… stretch out the soreness with our 7 Key Stretches for Runners or some Yoga for Runners. Either one is a great way to stay loose and shake out that soreness!

Still working on our August calendar and I’ve gotten some good stuff coming in but would love to see more! Thank you to Jan Peischel and Kacey Trapp for giving me some stuff you like…would love for others jump in and help me help you reach your goals!

Only a few PayPal notices trickling in. If you are due for August please click here and make sure you are set for our new month!

It would be helpful to know what you loved this month….pick a day you loved and tell me why you loved it.

Now get to work Crew…I want to see even more activity today! Don’t make me call you out next…. 😉

Day 11: Challenge Winner!!!

Screen Shot 2016-05-11 at 5.45.01 AMHey Core Crew…sorry for the delay…but we have a challenger winner for April!

This was a super tough month to decide because there were LOTS of stand outs…and even 3 Challengers who completed ALL 30 Days!

First off..HUGE props to Christine Shelly Tesner and Traci Grimes Yates…you ladies ROCKED it for April!! I wish I could give everyone a medal and you would BOTH get one. You finished all 30 days and that is an amazing feet! It takes willpower, dedication, and serious resolve to get it done each and every day and I am so stinking proud of both of you!

Other stand outs…

  • Becky Jacobsen – Finished 28 days!! 🙂
  • Deena Hill – Finished 28 days!! 🙂
  • Martin Gonzalez – Finished 28 days!! 🙂

Way to go Core Crew! I hope you are all feeling fitter, stronger, and more confident! More than “winning” that is what it’s all about. You are working so hard to reach your goals and getting slower and closer every day! Keep pushing!!

Drum roll please…..our April Challenge winner is a woman who started working out with the 30 Day Challenge in April 2015. She was active…but was not a runner, she was fit…but couldn’t do a push up, she was fabulous….but now she is STRONG and a Marathoner!!

Lisa Lasseter….you are our April 2016 30 Day Top Challenger!! You finished all 30 Days of our April Challenge and went the extra mile but completing the #BrowniePoints on 4/13! Lisa you have come so far and have pushed the boundaries of what is asked of you every single day. You run a little farther….you push a little harder…you make us all want to take a nap! 😉

So proud of how far you have come in one year. From not being able to run a mile…to KILLING all your half marathons…and ROCKING 2 full Marathons. Girl you are a amazing and I am so proud to be your friend and Fearless Leader!

Since Lisa lives in Jax, a few of us had the pleasure of meeting her for her birthday lunch yesterday and surprising her with the April “Top Challenger” medal. Way to go Lisa!!! And Happy Birthday!!! 🙂

For those of you who are confused…every once in a while I throw in a little extra…on top of the bonus. You have to read the daily posts to find them…but they do count! Every little bit counts! Not just towards the challenge…but towards your fitness and strength!

Keep pushing Core Crew! You make me smile…and make me proud…every single day! 🙂
