Half Marathon, muscle up, paleo challenge!

Ugh, I haven't posted since just after the Paleo challenge ended. Lots of interesting things have happened since then. On June 6, I did my first muscle-up! I did a bunch of practice on different pieces -- chest high pullups with a band, weighted pullups, chinups, banded muscleups. But the key thing that made the difference was a hard core false grip. It all came together Saturday, 6/4, the two days before my 41st birthday. I went in on Monday, and made sure the instructors saw it. It hurt my elbow a lot so I haven't done once since. :(

I also dropped from 167.3 at the end of the Paleo challenge, all the way down to 162.3 at one point. But I'm now hovering between 164 and 165. Need to get back on the straight and narrow!

At the end of June, my running partner Annelisa and I ran the Seattle Rock n Roll Half Marathon and finished in 1:56 and 1:57, beating our goal of 2:00. Here's a picture of me at the end of the half marathon
I eventually passed the woman next to me. Annelisa came in one minute after me.

That's about all for now!
