This week has been busy. I am working 6 days, which is highly unusual, but I said yes, because I could use the overtime. I have been trying to go to bed earlier (before 11PM) this week with the intent being that I would run in the morning. You would think this would make my mornings easier. Not so much. It has been so incredibly hard to wake up, I haven’t run at all this week AND I have been yawning all day long everyday. What the heck is up with that.
With that little tid bit said, I had been thinking about doing the Super 5K this Sunday for a while, but was thinking I should NOT spend the money to run right now. However, I just found out that I got a $250 dollar bonus in my check for meeting my sales goals in December! So I decided to reward myself and sign up for the Super 5K!
Ok, since when did signing up for running races become a reward? A reward is a tasty donut or a piece of KFC or a delicious brownie or….right?
Not anymore! This is another NON SCALE measurement of true lifestyle change happening here.
I may struggle.
I may whine.
I may fail at times.
The scale may not move for months on end.
But when it comes right down to it.
I am not the same.
I do not want the same things I once wanted.
I have a dream…
of being healthy and fit and active and full of life and spunk and vigor…I can sit still for only so long before I grow sick of my laziness.
Races as a reward? Oh yeah Baby!!
With that said…I needed some inspiration tonight AND I thought I might be able to sign up for the race at Running Fit. So I stopped in at my friendly running store to see Linda and Lori. I couldn’t sign up in-store, but I was able to visit with these lovely ladies. Have I mentioned before how lovely these women are? They are soo encouraging. AND they are runners. I like being around people who like to run, simply because they can. I hung out in this store for over an hour, just chatting, watching them sell things to other people. I left inspired! Thank You Ladies…just being in your presence is inspiring and encouraging!
Oh, and I came right home and registered online. I am now signed up for the Super 5K. See you there Linda!
