Motivation Monday- If I Can Do It!

There is so much more to come on this, but somehow (a leftover bib and peer pressure) I ended up running a 10k this weekend! I have never ran more than 3 miles and just a quick reminder, a 10 k is 6.2! Did I rock it? Heck no! Did I survive? Heck yes! Was running injured my best idea? Probably not, but getting to run the You Go Girl with Stacie and all the local bloggies was an experience not soon to be forgotten! This weeks lesson... Sometimes, you just have to go for it! Forget about the results and remember why you love running!

Your amazing. I just assumed you had been running...you tricked us. GREAT JOB. So happy I got to meet you, glad you got to run! Aren't you glad you didn't miss the run. It all worked out. I'm sure we will see each other again soon, since you live close. Loved your bondiband too.

Those are usually the best races/runs - the ones you're not planning on! Hope the injury is ok!
