This weekend was a double whammy – I finished a 5k challenge with some tough obstacles plus  my friend came in town for a visit and support. One of my buddies found out about the challenge and we signed up as a group. While I upped my workouts a bit; I wasn't as prepared as I should be.

All the obstacles that involved total body strength I did alright, but any test that relied on upper body strength was extremely difficult. Guess I know what I need to change with my workouts 🙂 I had so much fun; I will definitely do something like this again.

  • Green Panda Treehouse->Cash Spending in May Saved Me Money!: I shared the results of my cash spending for food and hopefully encouraged some college graduates to save their money when eating out.
  • GoBankingRates->The Cost of Giving Birth vs. Adopting?Whether a family grows through adoption or by giving birth, it is an emotional rewarding process. For those deciding on which route is best for them, I wanted to share some numbers.

I hope you enjoy the posts!

  1. Wow, just found your blog. I was a super ninja during the 5k and had a blast! I didn’t know that you guys were in the same area. We live in North Raleigh. Maybe we could all get together and cook out and discuss married financial stuff?
