In addition to running everyday, one of my goals for 2014 is to experience different types of races. Yes, I have done the Color Run before (twice), and I have ran countless 5k’s, a 10k, and a half marathon. And I want to continue to work on that half marathon distance, as well as my 5k speed. But I also want to compliment that training with some strength training. I’m not talking about lifting a few weights; I want to challenge myself to do things that I honestly don’t know weather or not I can do! And what better way to enjoy strength training and push my limits then trying out an obstacle race?
Good morning! And congratulations on making it through the first week of the New Year! How are you doing on those resolutions?
Outside of my running streak, I haven’t really spoken much to what my other resolutions for this year are. I have a few that are personal that I will leave off of the blog for now. But I do want to share one other resolution of mine. This year I am going to make the effort to start being more honest with myself and others around me. I spend a lot of energy trying to please others, and I’m learning that it is usually not worth it. Have you experienced this? I waste a lot of time stressing over what others are going to think of decisions I make for myself. When I say ‘others’, I’m talking about people who I love. And I’m realizing that if I love them, and they love me, then it should not matter what decisions I make for myself. So that’s where I’m at. Like anytime we try to adjust our thought patterns, this is not going to be easy; but I believe it is manageable.
Happy limbo weekend! Haha! I heard the term Limbo weekend on the Today show this morning; it means the weekend between Christmas and New Years! I loved it, so I am probably going to be saying it all weekend! Yes, I’m officially a nerd.
Anywho …. I wanted to drop in and see what kind of running goals everyone has for this coming year?
Happy Monday everyone! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend! I spent the majority of my weekend finishing up Christmas shopping. But here are two other highlights:
1) Steven and I celebrated our two years of dating anniversary with sushi and wine! Sorry didn’t take any pictures because we didn’t take our phones out the whole time :)
This morning Steven and I left for South Florida to see his family for Thanksgiving. The car ride isn’t too terribly long and we normally make it fun with lots of music and car dancing :) Today we’re listening to alot of country music like Darius Rucker! I love his sound!!
Happy Monday afternoon!! I am writing this as I ride back into town from St Augustine (don’t worry I’m not driving, my
chauffer Steven has the wheel!)
This weekend was the best! I will have a race review and recap of the weekend up shortly!! Although I should probably focus on adult things like unpacking, laundry, and dinner first when I get home; so please be patient with me, but I promise the review will be up this week!
