I am exhausted. Abby and I have been sick the last couple of the days, the only thing worse than Abby being sick is me not feeling while she is sick. Monday night she was running a 104+ fever pretty much the entire night, this meant no rest for mom and dad, resulting in me feeling even worse on Tuesday. Last night was a little better, but we are not quite 100% just yet.
I am basically sick and tired of being sick and tired!! I am also tired of being injured 🙁 We walked all around Sesame Place on Saturday and by the time we got back to the hotel my shin was aching. I have rested the damn thing for a month now and it is not supposed to be hurting anymore, at least I have an appointment with the orthopedist on Thursday. I am ready to start working out without restrictions, but until then I bought this:
I am headed into the water for some pool running as soon as I get this baby in the mail. I NEED to run, even if it is in the water, I NEED to run.
In anticipation of making 2013, my 35th year of life, my healthiest, I have decided to join the Commitment Day Movement!!! On 01.01.13 I will be joining over 300,000 people in over 30 cities in a movement to commit to a healthier lifestyle that begins with a nationwide 5K!!!
I can’t think of a better way to start my New Year than by running a 5K!!! 2012 was supposed to be my best running year, unfortunately my body had other plans, so 2012 turned out to be an educational year that will allow 2013 to be my best running year this far!!!
Here is #myCommitment:
Join the movement and make a commitment!!!
As you can see I have running on my mind!
I have been told by many people that maybe running a marathon is not for me. I have been told maybe I should stop running altogether. Even with the best intentions these statements are discouraging and have left me doubting myself and my abilities.
This quote is my answer to these statements:
Running will always be a part of my life and I WILL run a marathon in 2013.
What are your goals for 2013??
