Looking forward with a better attitude!

Thursday, May 05, 2011

Thank you everyone for the support you have given me with my venting blog. I really needed that this morning!

I went to the gym and cleared my head.... that is always a great place to de-stress. During some weighted squats I turn to my friend and said, "We ARE running this race"! We decided to create our own race. Not sure yet what we are going to call it. We are not sure on the course yet. But we do know that it will be an official 13.1 mile course that will be timed using our Garmin watches and we will even have bibs made to wear during the race.

I am even going to see if my kids will still come out with my parents to come cheer us on. We want it to be kind of like a race atmosphere so we are going to create our own!

emoticon Now I can smile a little bit!

We also made plans for our reimbursement money for the cancelled half. We are going to use the money to participate in our first duathlon in September.

AND..... we are both signing up for another half marathon. We are looking at one in July.... it will be hot but that is what training is for!


So today is turning out OK and looking a little brighter!


Thank you again Spark friends for all your encouragement and support!

    So happy to hear that your day is turning out brighter. If I weren't going to be out of town on the weekend of May 21st I would totally come and cheer you on for your own personal 1/2 marathon. I think it is fantastic that you are still going to run and that you are looking at other events for the future. You are such an inspiration.
