Three Things Thursday

Ok so could I be more random much swirling around this fancy mind of mine....spring cleaning project coming up, miles miles and more miles, Marathon Monday, weather, food, you name it! Here is some semblance of Three Things....have fun!

1. I have been lacking in the motivation department. Part of this is because of my back....partly because for some reason I have all day heartburn....and partly because I am just plain tired. I started this whole 4:30am wake-up before Christmas and I think it is getting the best of me lately. Last night I feel asleep on the couch at 8:15 and proceeded to roll over this morning and smack the snooze button. I feel like my motivation comes and goes in waves.
Does anyone else experience this?? I want to keep the high motivation even if I'm not training for something but I'm having a hard time with it.......any suggestions?

2."At some point your life flashes in front of your eyes. Make sure its worth watching."
I read this quote yesterday on a blog and since I'm a space cadet with names I forget. It was a guest post by a woman who is a self-proclaimed marathon widow and the quote came from her husband's blog. I really liked it and also want to share it with my high schoolers who need their own dose of motivation.

3. I couldn't be more excited for Marathon Monday to come!!! This will be the first time I have just watched the marathon. Not only is it the start of my April vacation but we are also going to see Elmo Live the day before. Em is going to flip her lid!! We are going to my husband's grandmother's house in Framingham to watch the race. It isn't too far along, from what I remember it's like mile 7 or so, and so we need to get out there early! I am so excited to see Kara but also to cheer on Bethany, Aron, and Mel!!! If you are running it too let me know....we'll give you a shout out at mile 7!

Well that is all for now......I hope this Thursday treats you well.....warm weather is on it's way here!!!


  1. Love the quote!
    My motivation comes and goes, too. I wish I could stay motivated 24-7.

  2. So HAPPY you found my blog! I will be wearing a bib that says ELKTON on it :) ...I haven't decided what my race outfit will be exactly yet, though...have to wait for the weather. SO excited to find someone from the area. Are you in RI of MA? I am flying into providence, but staying in MA.

  3. Love that quote! I have times where motivation lags, it's not fun but I just push through it and eventually it returns. Maybe watching the race will be just the motivation you need. Have fun!

  4. I tagged you in my Stylish Blogger post today. I am not sure if you have done that already or not!
