In 20 more days I will run this, I will own this… I will DO this! I have to keep repeating this over and over again .. I need to believe that I can do it…

On Good Friday I ran the route, mind you I only did one loop at 10km, but damn you I did it. It took me 1 hr and 8 minutes, and the wind was against me on the way back, brutal. I needed to get my head wrapped around this whole I can do this thing. After the run I felt great, I was not dying, I was not crawling, I was not puking! I actually thought I could do more. Needless to say I stopped. No sense killing myself! Then on Saturday I did just a little 4k to try and work on pacing and that was ok. I headed back to the treadmill today, it was chilly this am, and ran another 5k. I will attempt the race route again this week, depending of course on weather conditions.

I survived Easter, but the chocolates found me and I ate em. Not many, but enough that my guts told me it was time for an intervention. I have cleaned out my bedroom of any and all chocolate… enough is enough.

The boy and I feasted on Gardein Stuffed Turk’y … and mini diva wanted some of it, instead of steak… #swoon… my heart melts when my kids eat well!

Hope y’all had a great holiday…
