The inspiration for today’s blog post was found in the strangest of places: my page a day calendar, a bag of m&ms, and at the local running store where I picked up my race packet for this weekend. Here we go. Try to keep up with my random thoughts.
1. Today’s page on my doggie calendar. I thought the description was appropriate.. Dixie is super fast but lovessss long, slow runs.
2. Boston colored M&Ms!!!! I opened my peanut m&ms after lunch and these four popped out and I realized how excited I am for the Boston marathon on Monday. Since I started blogging, I have found so many inspirational and motivating runners that are running on Monday, and I can’t wait to see how everyone does. I can only hope to be there someday!!
3. I get to race tomorrow! Sometimes we forget that we “get” to run, and I’m guilty of saying that I “have” to run way too often. Running is a blessing that we should never take for granted, and there are so many others who will never get to run in a race. The race I’m doing is for a great cause and I’m excited to be a part of it!
I don’t have great expectations for this race. I’ve been sick all week and have logged exactly 2 miles, but I also feel like racing will get me back on track with my training and will kick start what I feel like is going to be a really great week.
4. Girls weekend!! Thomas is out of town for the weekend, so that means I get to have some much needed girl time this weekend with some of my best friends. I’m sure we will take a lot of selfies and I’ll tell you all about it later whether you want me to or not 🙂
Are you excited about the Boston marathon? Are you running or do you know someone who is?
What is one thing you are excited about this weekend??
