hey christina, thanks!

I did not feel like going out there today.

Thank you, Christina, for messaging me yesterday to tell me you got a nice run in today – your first run, in fact. I’m so proud of you, and thanks to you I gave myself a kick in the butt and got outside for a run today. I didn’t have it in me yesterday – my eyes just shut on me. Sometimes you just have to listen to your body!

But today, I pushed. I got out there, and I ran. It felt so good and once again, I remembered why I am a runner. It is so nice to feel nothing but a cool breeze against you, and the pavement against your feet – nothing can bother you, and you don’t have to do anything except just move.

I also got an e-mail today, from my uncle Rick, with some information about upcoming runs. Another good motivator.

This reminds me – I’m kind of bummed that no one has commented, and wanted to be added to my list. I will have to add Aunt Carol (something tells me you wanted to comment on the post about that, but it wasn’t working for you 😉 hehe). Come on guys…I need to run these miles for someone other than just myself.

Some of you are being added to the list, because you are rocking out on the exercise train and you are also helping to keep me motivated. So, you just might get added to the list without your even wanting to be on it – but, let’s be honest…it is an honor! LOL :0)

I’ll see you all on Sunday for my next post…thought I’d add this in one for a little extra mid-week excitement!

walking and cross training

I just wrote a whole post about staying healthy, getting in good long walks, and cross training while traveling. My internet connection was lost as I clicked saved. Post = gone.


Anyway, I haven’t been able to get great runs in while on our cross-country road trip. I have been getting in great walking, stretching, and some strengthening exercise though, so I’ll take that for what it is worth. My knee has also had time to rest and it feels like it is getting back on track so that’s at least a good thing.

In one week, I will be back on track so I’m not worried. I know March will fly by too, and April brings the beginning of intense training so I’ll be ready to rock once I’m settled in and back on a schedule.

Little bumps in the road are no big deal.

Well, we’re in Vegas but I wanted to post (even if this isn’t as good as the one that got deleted 😦 ) and let you know I’m doing by best to stay in shape while on the road. I hope you are meeting your February exercise goals…if not, there is still one week to make it happen. Don’t forget to make some goals for March too…good month to make big plans, saying goodbye to Winter and ushering in Spring!

Staying healthy while on the road…success.
