It is the small things in life that matter

Today has been perfect ~ church, lunch, nap, dinner, and a movie. A short run tonight. What else could a girl ask for?

Twelve Days

Sometimes I wonder where the day goes - today I wonder where has the last twelve days gone. Excuses are easy to find - house construction gone wrong, delays in putting in the pool, joint commission surveys, blah days, and on and on and on......

Well here I sit, twelve days into my training program and no training has occurred. So now what? - how do I refocus, find my motivation and get moving.

Looking in a mirror helps - I no longer see the runner I felt I had become this time last year - instead I see a middle aged person.

With Memorial Day weekend here, I have three days to get moving. No excuses - just getting running - that is what I am going to do..... this weekend... no turning back.

Starting Over

On of the blessing we often overlook is the ability to start over. In January 2008 I started running - it was about me. Over the past two years I have lost balance in my life. This weekend I picked spending time with my kids over work or volunteer activities. I also bought a treadmill. No excuses now. I can run in the morning and bike in the evenings with my husband.

My husband has become my motivation - he has worked hard and lost 30 pounds. He has encouraged me to sign up for the St. Jude Half-Marathon. So here we go... I am starting over. See one of my goals - below - run 500 miles this year.
