Day 14-15 Yoga November Challenge [Soft Flow Class]
Today is November 15, 2014.
Mantra of the day: Sometimes you win, sometimes you learn.
Day#14: Rest Day
This Saturday morning was lovely. The great start of the day was when I open the curtains and saw that was snowing. So for a moment I contemplated to stay at home so I do not drive in the snow. But I think twice and decided to go. I said in my mind this day is a wonderful day to relax and enjoy the rest of my day with my family. So I went to the class. I took the soft flow class in the morning. Let me tell you was a little bit challenging but at the same time powerful. I release all the negative of my mind; I introduce a positives thoughts; and relax my mind. Was a wonderful experience. The teacher was amazing his voice was incredible relaxing. He explained so well, and show how to do the poses. It’s nice because I’m a beginner on this practice.
You know when you are in the right place and time, when you feel comfortable with yourself. That was my moment, my space, my time, my peaceful and grateful instant to enjoy my life. In this class I found a little bit more about me. It felt so good to have this occasion to review my life and be grateful with everything is happening.
Thanks God for be present in our lives. Thank God for my husband, for my baby girl, for my home, family, and friends.
Theme of the class was Acceptance.
I accepted in the class to be more positive, if I’m that way everything in life is going to work with me.

My fourth 5k event was on September 6, 2013. This event was at night with the people around my community. Was a great idea because I’m new in the neigborhood. I got to know more people that love the same passion that is RUN. This race was nice, I saw the families giving support around the route; was a great motivation. I went by myself, so that was nice to receive the animate from the people around; great impression. This was a fun run, I made it to the finish line in 38:36 min. To be by myself with no friend or family member around me was great. I usually run with my amore or friends when is relative with races.
The finish was nice.The event got better at the end; Free snacks, Free beer, Free gifts, music and a nice part was the bonfire.
This once again was a great experience, I loved it… I’m a little sad because it was the first time that the community make this event and for the next year I won’t be here to participate… But the life goes on, and you need to move on, to progress. The good thing is that I going to be in a new place to explore it RUNNING! Love it…
