What a weird feeling! I feel so gutsy right now and at the same time I think I lost my mind!
I pulled the DisneyRun registration page up and read that the September 1/2 Marathon was 62% full. So I thought, "I still have time to think about it". Then I saw that it was cheaper if I signed up by February 28, so I thought "I still have time to think about it". Then I read that the payment is non-refundable and thought "maybe I should wait and be sure that I can do it".
...Then this other little voice inside my head kept saying "Just do it!" That little voice got louder and louder! I thought of all the things I have learned in the past year at SparkPeople.com, mainly how important it is to have goals. I thought about how this goal would keep me going and my weight off until at least September (lol)! It was like I got kicked in the pants - "JUST DO IT!"
So I keyed my credit card numbers in real quick and hit "send"!
There is no turning back now.
Ironically, as I pulled up my Sparkpage, my background picture stared me right in the face:
"I'm not telling you it's going to be easy, I'm telling you it's going to be worth it." OK, Jillian Michaels, I am going to trust you on this one!

My little brother, 42, who lives in San Diego, came over to the East Coast for four days on business. He met us for dinner last night. We had a great time catching up. He runs almost every day and said he would run the Disneyland Half Marathon with me in August this year. My bff was supposed to run with me but she now has a work commitment. So, it looks like I am going to California!

I finally got a small moment to blog...Just got a flat, waiting for my husband!
It's been a crazy week. Started with my son's 21st birthday weekend celebration, then yesterday I had to go to Long Island, NY for business. That was a 3.5 hour drive each way! I packed all my food for the entire day in a cooler so i did great on my cals. Today I packed my running stuff and ran 4.2 miles during lunch break. It was 72 degrees in Delaware.
I am so thankful to have the spark tracker phone app on weeks like this. It makes it so easy to keep up.
I hope you are doing well on your journey!

It's been a few days since I blogged, I haven't had a lot of time to go on the computer!
I did finish the January Jumpstart Challenge yesterday, I didn't get a chance to exercise at all Thursday between work and going out to dinner with friends.
Last night I went to a Pampered Chef/Tastefully Simple/Sell your gold/silver party! One of my old employees had it, it was fun catching up. She and her husband are hardcore runners - he won the Delaware Marathon the first year. There were other runners at the party too, it definitely was motivating to me.
There is a running club in Southern Delaware called the Seashore Striders Club. They have races all year. I ran in one last summer. I am going to sign up for a couple during these winter months. I find that I am more focused when I run races. And, they are a really nice group. I don't know of any around where I live in Maryland.
Today I cleaned my house, next I am running 3 miles outside (it is 50 degrees). I consider this cold, but am doing it today because FitForMyFamily thought my feeling cold at 50 was so funny! Then I will be off to buy my son a birthday gift & strawberry torte (his favorite) - he will be 21 tomorrow! He is my youngest. He has to work til 11:30 tonight and then is going to park his car at his best friend's house and go order a drink at one of his favorite restaurants. They live and hang out in a small college town so they can walk everywhere. I think a bunch of us are going to join him at midnight, so I am going to need a nap at some point today!
I hope you are having a great weekend!
