2 months to go!!!

My "running for a reason" charity Half Marathon is in 2 months. Today I went for a run after work. I cut it short at 3 miles as I was feeling extremely discouraged. I felt deflated and pissed. I was weak and had no motivation to move forward. I felt like giving up. I felt like there was no way I could run 4 miles let alone 13. I have run a half before so deep down I know I can do it. I just had a horrible pathetic moment. I hated it. I came home and in my mail box was a donation of $100. Talk about wind in your sails---a reminder at the perfect time---why I am running this. Not only for me, but for others. Lisa and I have now raised over $900 for our run!! WOO HOO!!

My son showed me this video tonight---again perfect timing. Another fabulous reminder than I (and anyone) can do anything they set their mind to.

New shoes!

It is that time again-time for new shoes. I started with saucony ride 2, then to saucony triumph 8, now on to saucony triumph 9. What a fabulous revamp!

See how the new version is smaller, less bulky in heel and on the sides

The heel is not as high

Sole is completely redesigned

My husband got a new pair too!
