I got stuck this week.
I had gained 3 pounds in the last 7 weeks, when my running went down from 20-mile weeks to 6-mile weeks, and I didn't change my eating for that! I was exhausted from work stress and not taking the time to a) work out more consistently and b) plan meals. So I churned along in the mud for a bit, not realizing it, until I got, well, stuck. This week I realized I couldn't get UNstuck without PUTTING THE VEHICLE BACK INTO GEAR, lol!!
So today I'm joining 1800 of my best strangers in the It's a Wonderful Run 5K. I signed up for it 2 months ago, to keep me running and have some holiday fun. And even though I've only run 1-2x/week lately, I'm still going, still having fun, and using it like chains to pull myself out of the mud!
All bodes well, because - check it out -- the FB profile photo for this Bedford-Falls/It's A Wonderful-Life-themed race is:
See the resemblance?
