Ok Motivation, you can come back, I signed up for a race!!

On paper, I did not achieve my 400 mile goal for 2010. There I said it. I have written and re-written and tried to get out of writing this post, but it had to be said. All in all, I came up short and wasn't able to make up the last 12 miles during the holidays. In the back of my head, I already KNEW that I had completed 400, just not documented. I didn't start tracking my miles until the end of February - one 4-mile run the last week. I KNOW that I ran at least 12 miles in January and the beginning of February, but it just would have been cooler to see it in writing. There, I admitted it.

Moving on.....I haven't run yet in 2011. We begain the year up in Vermont, skiing with college friends. Due the the slopes and the alcohol consumed, there was no running that weekend! And I have been sick since last Wednesday, hense no miles logged. I didn't even go to work Wednesday, and probably shouldn't have gone today, either. So I decided I needed to sign up for a race to help get the ball rolling and invite Mr. Motivation back into my life!

Super Sunday 10k, here we come! I knew that a 5k would not be enough motivation, so when my husband found this race in South Boston on Superbowl Sunday, I knew it was perfect. We signed up last night, arranged for a babysitter (who ends up is having a Superbowl party that day too!), and then I got my new running skirt in the mail today! Now if only someone could turn off the faucet, aka my nose, I can get my first 2011 miles logged......


  1. Feel better soon! I am glad to hear you have a race on the calendar - it definitely helps :)!

  2. YAY! I understand your thinking, and would probably feel the same, but really 388 is basically 400 - it rounds up :) I've never run in a skirt before - how do you like it?

  3. Hey Laura! Thanks for your sweet comment on my blog. The little things mean so much right now. It's good to be back. Hope to catch up on what's been going on in your life. Stay in touch.
