Nobody cares if you're not a good dancer. Just get up and dance. The same holds true for racing. Whether first or last, we all cross that same finish line. Just get out there and run.

No Backing Out Now

It's official, no backing out now, I signed up for the Disney Princess Half Marathon! It's starting to get a l little more real and a whole lot more scary, but that's ok, I got this. Just have to make sure I am fast enough to not get picked up by the bus. I don't care if I'm last across the finish line, I just want to finish it. I got this!

I hit up Groove this morning to dance it out with K&A, it was a groovy good time. Afterwards, I got on the treadmill to try and get in a short run. I surprised myself, I wasn't particularly fast but I was talking to K when I started running after my warm up, and when I looked down to see how much time had passed I saw that I had been running for almost 5 minutes straight. I know that for those of you who are seasoned runners, this isn't a big deal but this is HUGE in my world. My confidence went through the roof! So, after a super short walk break, I tried to see if I could run for 5 again, and I didn't quite make it but I think it's because I was thinking about it and wigged myself out. Regardless, I am still pretty darn proud, and I plan on riding this high today. It's the little things right?!

K and I have plans for a walk or run tomorrow, depends on how we feel and how our joints are doing. I can't wait because I love our time together just chatting about everything. Before that I am training with Amy and I should have plenty of therapy between the both of them to get me through the weekend at the very least. LOL I need the therapy session(s).
