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.

Well, That Was Harder Than I Thought It Would Be.

This is kind of what I had going on in my closet.
So, I cleaned out my closet. All the old clothes that have not fit in months are officially out of my closet, and it's sad to see how little I have left in there. So, I thought it would be this easy thing to just clear the old stuff out of there but it was tough and it was surprisingly emotional. I guess it was the statement of "Im not going back there" that really made it surprisingly difficult. When it was all said and done I filled 4 garbage bags with clothes headed to the women's shelter. I did keep a couple of things... the first pair of pants I wore to the gym, and the outfit in this picture....

I plan on taking a picture of myself wearing the outfit once I reach my goal. Should make for a heck of a picture.

In other news, I had my final long run before the half today. We started with this awesome attitude and we were ready for a kick ass long run. We started out well, but fizzled by the time we hit the 5 mile mark. We were mentally there, our fuel and hydration was there, but we were both exhausted and more so than what you would expect. We eeked out another two miles, and decided when we hit 7 that we would walk that last mile back to the cars. This was not one of our most bad ass moments. That being said, not every run can be this awesome bad ass rockstar run, and we understand that. We got some miles in, and we have a race at Bella's elementary school on Saturday. Maybe there will be some redemption there. We'll see.

Last but not least... just had to share that I am picking up another Zumba class on Wednesday evenings. WOOHOOO!!!!! Plus, I am getting my hair done tomorrow... double plus!

I had the same problem when cleaning out my closet. I held onto some things like the shirt I wore on my first date with hubby and the outfit I brought my first daughter home in.

I just parted with things in my closet that I absolutely love. But really, do I need my college clothes anymore? I mean I finished in 2000, it was time to move on. But I was a little sad.

I have to get my Princess hair done!! I should arrange that now. Must have fresh hair to race after all.

So exciting that it was your last long run. Sunday I am doing 11, and from then I get to taper. Hallelujah for the taper!!
