Going to run, going to run, going to run.

Wednesday, September 29, 2010

I've decided that the only way I'll stick to my goal-seeking mentality is to put some money on it. Really. Money is a motivator, particularly when I'm the one who's spending it.

I'm signing up for the Cleveland 1/2 Marathon; I figure that I have until May to train, and I can be more than ready. I used to love running (still do!), and I'm hoping that with the concrete goal in the distance, I will be able to run every day.

Even though I tend to despise what I look like (now is a particularly bad body-image time), I'm hoping that I'll release a lot of good mental juju and stop focusing so much on what I DON'T look like and start to like what I DO. I lead such a sedentary lifestyle (helloooooo dissertation) that I need to focus on my accomplishments bit by bit and forget all the negativity wrapped up in how my clothes fit. It's a goal--one that is the hardest to acheive, especially in myself. I should start taking my own advice, since I tell my friends that every little win is huge. Duh, Erika, LISTEN! :)

    Well, lace up the shoes and hit the pavement. Just remember to train smart and safely to avoid injury.
