Update~!

Thursday, September 29, 2011

I just love my Sparkfriends! The only ones asking for a race update! It's great to have this community.
Here goes:
Fired up for a cure 9-24-2011
finished #99 out of #119
time 37:43.3
ran a 12:10 mile (well I will admit that I lost my spice a few times and walked some)
I have a long term goal to get to a 10 minute mile
I am way ahead of everyone that didn't show up and I got a nice compliment from the mother of the 6 year old that "smokes" me every race!
This race was to honor my BFF. She did not come. My son was sick with a cold and said that he would not be able to run with me right before we left the house. I felt depressed about BFF not coming and blowing the whole thing off. I have since spoken to her and did let her know that I was upset. I told her that I was aware that she had not asked me to do this. I stated that I will never bring up the subject with her again. I have learned a valuable lesson. I will also not speak of the disappointment about that situation again (anywhere!)
I joined a weight loss competition at the Y. SOMEONE in the locker room "threw down the gauntlet" and called me out! Yikes- way to spur me on! I am serious about that- if you tell me I won't be able to do something most of the time it makes me try all the more~ I lost over 5 lbs on the weigh in today! Excitement!
I will not give up. I won't be ashamed or upset that someone is doing more or "better" than me. If you run faster and farther- good for you! I'm just so glad that I can actually run- I was so afraid that I would never be able to walk normally again and now I can run! I still have trouble on steps- going down them- but maybe that will get better over time too.
Whatever you do or want to do - don't give up. Don't let other people control you or your emotions. Don't be a hostage to the thoughts and ideas of other people. Be yourself and be proud of who you are and what you can do.

    You did an awesome job! You still did it even though you had to do it by yourself and that your BFF wasn't there for you. Your spark friends will always be here for you and encourage you through everything you do! emoticon
