It's the same ole, same ole anyway.....
I am up early this morning for a 5K. I have not run once this week so I should be fresh (or not prepared, whichever way you want to look at it) for this race! But I know I will have a fun time and I will cross that finish line. My time on this race last year was 41:23. Don't know that I can beat that time since I have not been training like I should. But just being out there is cool!! Race day weather so far is Temp: 66 at 6:25 am and Humidity 94% (not good). But at least it won't be too hot!
I can't seem to find the same enthusiasm I had for all this running stuff when I first started. I originally started running to lose weight and that did not happen. I guess I though that the pounds would magically melt off of me just because I got up off the couch. But I can't seem to control the hand-to-mouth thing. But I will continue to work on it - one day at a time. I haven't gained. I just seem to be at a stand still.
One of these days I am going to love myself enough to really want this thing. Until then - I'll just keep trying.
Now, for my last cup of coffee before this 5K. I'm excited. The race day is always fun. It's the training that sucks. lol
I did sign up for St. Jude again but I signed up as HERO so I am raising $500.00 for the kids of St. Jude. Please pray and if you feel lead, I would love for you to join me in helping them with a monetary donation. My page is below if you would like to help
It was a hard decision because for the first time my mom will not be there with me. She was my best cheerleader. But I know she would want me to do it again.
Have a great weekend my friends.
