1. "Don't be afraid to give up the good to go for the great" This quote was from Lesley at Racing it Off and it really sums up what I have been reflecting on a lot. As much as I talk about running faster and getting prs I have recognized that it is the fear of failing that keeps me from really going out there to get it. Same for marathon running. I want so badly to run another but along with the fear of totally stressing out my family, there is that lingering feeling of what if I don't do any better. I realize that that is highly unlikely but you know how it goes. I am determined to lose the fear!!! "For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline". Timothy 1:7.
2. I have felt like I have hit my stride this week with running....like really feeling like myself again! I'm looking to the Fall for a race or two to train for. I really love doing long races in the Fall...just beautiful around here! I am hoping to get out early (5am) tomorrow morning to get in my run since I am heading to visit the fam. Since I am a complete scaredy cat and think that someone is going to steal me, this is a stretch for me. We shall see! Also on the fitness front...my brother-in-law wants his P90X back....how dare he!!! Any suggestions for something just as good just not as pricey???
3. This weekend is high school graduation. Since I only check my mailbox once a month (it's a 1/4 mile away...although that would add mileage) I didn't realize that teachers walk in graduation. So it looks like I am going to be putting on this getup Sunday!
As I see it I paid $150 for this whole shebang so I need to work at the high school for at least 10 years to get my money back!!!
Have a great Thursday all and stay cool!!!!
