Happy New Year!

“Cheers to a new year, and another chance for us to get it right!” -Oprah Winfrey

2018 was a crazy year, with lots of ups and downs, like any other year! I was challenged, but I’ve also been changed! I’ve hurt, and I’ve worked to heal.

I’m excited for a new year, cause 2019 is shaping up to be AWESOME! Have a happy New Year! 😊

What was a highlight of your 2018?

Self Care Saturday – Listen To Your Body!

When your coffee cup matches your shirt… 👌🏼

I usually run on the weekends but I’m taking today as an actual rest day – my body has been sending me signs that it needs a break, so even though I still have some mileage to acquire for the challenge, today I will listen and rest! I WILL acquire it, so I am not worried! 😊

Coffee, errands, house stuff and then we celebrate Courtney and Evan’s new house! 🎉

 

Thursday Thoughts – Celebrate The Journey, Not Just The Destination!

We are our own harshest critics, right?

There are a lot of miles tacked up on this paper, but I was so focused on the END RESULT that I was forgetting to celebrate the JOURNEY of getting there, forgetting to celebrate the fact that my legs have run 49.99 miles in 42 days!

For reference (and if I’m being honest, FUN!), I tallied up all my runs from 21August2017 through 17June2018, for a total of 15 runs and 32.3 miles total, in TEN MONTHS.

From the start of this challenge (18June2018) through 31July2018, I have 17 runs totaling 49.99 miles in SIX WEEKS.

That’s a HUGE difference and I needed the reminder that I’m CRUSHING IT, instead of being ‘woe is me, I’m so behind the pace I set for this.’

Eff no, I’m gonna celebrate faster times, longer runs, frequency, and the fact my legs are gettin’ toned. as. eff!

Don’t be so damn focused on the DESTINATION that you neglect to •appreciate and celebrate• the JOURNEY that gets you there! 😊
