Monday Motivation

This weekend I realized something about myself....I need to push harder.  Sundays used to be a sore day for me...long run on Saturday usually meant Sunday was going to be a sore day.  Well....I wasn't sore....or tired.  11.5 miles and I wasn't sore.  This means two things to me.....I need to go longer and faster!  I want to see what I'm made of!  The only person limiting me is myself!!  

What are you made of?  Go out there this week and find out!!!

Thankfulness Day 21:  I'm thankful for my Dad's health, even though he isn't feeling super...he's home!  I have written many times about my Dad and his struggle with Chrone's Disease.  One Thanksgiving my hubby and I got to my parent's house and no one was home.  Dad had to be rushed to the hospital with a blood infection.  Well this year, even though I won't be there, he is.  Chrone's is a daily struggle for him but each day I am thankful for one more day with my Dad!

  6. I have had that realization a couple times! Sometimes I really try to not pay attention to it, but it's so much better when I do something about it!

  15. This is a very good sign! Your body has adapted well and is asking to be pushed a little. Here's to a longer long run!

  16. I love the idea of going vegetarian for a day. Great way to get new foods into the diet. You should invest in a good inspiring vegetarian cookbook.
