La Vida Loca

I completely forgot about pilates.  In my defense, I...I guess I really don't have one.  It was a busy afternoon though.  My mom came back from visiting my sister and my dad came over after I got home from work.  So it was a nice evening with good conversation. 

I knew there was a zumba class at seven, so I decided to go to that since I have missed zumba for a month!  Once I got there, I was having a hard time getting into it.  I tried though.  It got easier and I started to enjoy myself.  Until she played Zoot Suit Riot, and then I was all what?  I know they don't always play songs in Spanish, but that is just not zumba music!  It would have been okay after that, but then she played Ricky Martin.  At least I think it was Ricky Martin and Living La Vida Loca.  So we went from swing music to Latin singer singing a not-really-Latin song.  I glanced around the room while making a WTF face and saw my cousin, Gloria; and I was totally busted with my WTF face.  I smiled.  Hi Gloria!  She told me she likes reading my blog.  =)  That made me feel good, and then I felt like I had to refocus.  So, thanks, Gloria!!

Now, after my attitude adjustment, suddenly songs seemed better.  There were even a few older ones that I remembered and also one of Kelly's favorites by the Pussycat Dolls.  Now Pussycat Dolls is not really Latin-inspired, but the song still makes more sense than Zoot Suit Riot if you ask me.  All in all, it was a lot of fun, and I'm glad I went.

My plan was to go back to the rec center after putting the little one to bed, but as I was putting my running shoes on, something told me I should just stay put.  I'm not sure why, but I've learned to trust that voice in my head, so I am not getting my run in tonight. =(
That makes me sad.

I am learning though that coach Ric has a sense of humor.  Earlier in the week, he sent an e-mail out saying that he was pleased to hear that we wanted more bridges.  I was all, Who in the hell is asking for more bridges?"  I took me a minute, or maybe even a day, to realize that he was being sarcastic. 

Anyway, there is an impending tropical storm forming and heading to the Texas coast and the gist of the e-mail was that we would be running as long as there's no lightning or winds stronger than 35 miles per hour; even if it is raining, snowing, or cold.  The one that made me laugh the most was "If it is raining hard (cats and dogs)…your going to get wet! I might suggest no make-up because you might be mistaken for a member of "KISS"! :)"

Hmmm...That could be a good plan for the Warrior Dash.  We can put on wigs and lots of make up.  By the end of it, we probably would look like members of KISS.  I bet people would even ask us for our autograph!  It would be another loco chapter in mi vida loca!
