Tuesday, November 15


I'm still hobbling around the house like an 80-year-old with bunions (or a 30-something runner with some angry blisters!), but every achy step reminds me that I ran hard on Sunday.

I've been recovering with walking, yoga, and lots and lots of sleep, so I don't have much exciting news to share. But I do want to send a blog THANK YOU to Kristin at Everyday is Run Day for this little gem:
This is my new desktop wallpaper.
Don't get me wrong: I'm not giving up track workouts.
In fact, after my race on Sunday I am more determined than ever to be faster on my next 13.1.
But I knew Sunday wasn't going to be a PR.
And it was totally bumming me out (I put a happy face on. After all, fake it 'til you make it, right? But I was not a happy camper last week...)
This simple little slogan gave me the inspiration to put my all into the race.
And I'm really glad I did.

... now off to plan the next one!

Do you have a slogan/mantra/poster that inspires you?

  1. Try some epsom salts on those feet!! They make my feet feel soooo much less like swollen, blister covered death sticks and more like feet :) Also stealing the inspiration!

  2. Thanks for the shout out Beth! I'm glad it motivated you to the finish last weekend!

  3. That's awesome inspiration, must remember that. :) And every experience adds to the next, right? Hope the feet feel better fast :)
