Chubby, sleepy face.
I ran! It wasn’t fast and it didn’t hurt as much as I thought it would.
I mean, it was my first run in over 3 months (Dailymile says my last run was December 11…wow)
I don’t know how much of a running routine I can get myself into this close to being done in Jalapa, but it’s nice to know that I can still put one foot in front of the other.
Monday: INSANITY Max Plyo Intervals
Tuesday: T-25 Core Speed/Ab Intervals
Wednesday: TurboFIRE Fire 45
Thursday: TurboFIRE HIIT 30/Abs 10
Tomorrow is a rest day; I think it’s deserved. Happy Friday, everyone!
This month…this month is happening. I’ve spent 26 months in Nicaragua. I will soon be in my own bed, in my own room, in my own house with my mom, dad, and puppy. I will soon be reunited with my novio. I will soon be starting the next chapter in my life.
Puppy acquired by my mom and they’re on their way home!
Thanks for all of your good vibes… I can finally breathe again…whew!

She’s in the air on her way to Denver! My mom is anxiously awaiting her arrival and they’ll be on the road back to her new (temporary) home!
UPDATE: PLANE HAS LANDED IN DENVER!!!
For being so busy, I’d call this month a win.
3.5 weeks, y’all. 25 days and I’ll be home.
Pípe’s flight has landed and she’s currently at the overnight kennel. The lady said she’s wagging her tail and looks very good.
HUGE wave of relief.
Doing this process all over again tomorrow morning when I get word she is on the plane from ATL to DEN. Then, after everything, when she is in my mom’s arms, I can relax.
Thanks for all the positive vibes! They’re working! Just asking for a few more tomorrow morning.
4 am wake up call to drop Pípe off at the airport.
She walked right into her crate just fine, I gave her lots of puppy love and told her I’ll see her on the other side.
No tears were shed, but I’m trying to hold myself together and think positive. Plane leaves at 8, gets in around 11:30 to ATL, then she heads to the kennel for the night. Phase 3 starts tomorrow at 8am when she heads to DEN where my mom will be at the ready to get her grandpuppy.
Any extra positive thoughts/vibes you have today and tomorrow, I’d very much appreciate if you could send a few our way.
UPDATE: PUPPY IS NOW IN THE AIR EN ROUTE TO ATL
Pípe is officially in Managua. We got SUPER lucky and got a free, private ride with my counterpart because he had to pick something up at the airport for the brigade. 4.5 hour trip: done.
Papers are ready, puppy is paid for, currently living the royal life at our country director’s house until Thursday morning.
As for me, dearest Colorado, I’ll be IN YOU 1 month from today!
Short breaths, wide awake, can’t go back to sleep.
Third night in a row.
The pup is USA bound next Thursday.
Plans are made. Flights are booked. Parents are at the ready.
Unfortunately, she has to overnight in ATL (no way around it, no matter how hard I tried), but heads to DEN first thing Friday morning.
Please send good thoughts our way on the 27th that my bubba gets home safe.
