I know what I need to do.

I just need to actually DO it.

I’ve got my gym notebook out and a pen on top ready to start this list.

I’m writing goals, a plan and everything I need to be successful… with dates and a timeline.

Yesterday was the Marathon By the Sea here. On my drive into town I was stopped by police to allow runners to go through the intersection. While I have ZERO desire to ever run for more than 40-50 minutes… which means unless I get CRAZY fast… I will never run a half marathon or a full marathon… but seeing those runners yesterday reminded me I need a goal, I need to have that satisfaction in my life.

I know I can set goals and make plans on my own, but I really think a race is what is in the cards for me.

Today marked my first morning cardio since prep. I really just needed to get moving. I feel swollen, sore and just… gross. It’s not pleasant.

This week is just about getting moving…. next week it’s on.

September 11th is the most probably race day… so here goes nothing.

  1. Races can be great motivators. Good luck with your training – you can do it!

  2. “I know what I need to do. I just need to actually DO it.” << Sounds just like me. Now I just need to be more like you and actually make something happen after stating those facts.

    I am looking forward to reading about your training for a race, you always inspire me to get my butt moving!

  3. It’s funny because I can’t imagine doing shorter races for fun – BUT I am not speedy AT ALL.

    Glad you found something to motivate you — Good luck!!!

  4. Watching races always inspire me
    Good luck today – your plan sounds perfectly obtainable – get up and move, i think i’ll take your lead and do the same!

  5. Good luck girl. You are going to do so well in your race just like you did with your competition!

    Go for it! Hey, what’s the worst that could happen, you don’t want to do another one? But, i feel like you’ve started getting the bug for running. I think you might actually like it. I’m excited for you!

  9. Good luck! Sept 11 is my race day too…

    You can do it!
