Today was a rest day for me because MY RACE IS IN TWO DAYS!! OH MY GOD! How am I going to get any SLEEP? I am SOOOOOO excited. Wow, can you tell I'm all geared up!? I wish I had a nice technical shirt for my race, but they are WAY too expensive in my size right now. As I said above - I should be able to buy one from Target in a few months! Hopefully I can do that by my second race which is May 19th! I'm going to try to run a race every month - that should help keep me focused on running instead of weight loss. I'm not sure why that changes it for me but it does. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that weight loss seems daunting to me sometimes. When I see how far I have to go it makes me want to give up. With running I can already do it, I just need to improve. I don't know if that makes any sense, but it works for my crazy brain!
So speaking of my race, the weather is supposed to be craptastic. It's supposed to be cold and rainy. I have a friend who is a runner - as are her beautiful daughters. She mentioned to me that I had better not wear a light colored shirt. OH MY GOD I had never even thought of that! I told her I might not place first in the race but I would win a wet T shirt contest in a heartbeat! That had seriously never even crossed my mind! Could you imagine my picture as I crossed the finish line?
Well, I had better get going. Both kids have fevers and congestion. I'm going to have to set up the air mattress in the baby's room so both kids can benefit from the humidifier. Colin loves camping in Susie's room - it's exciting for him! He is such a cutie pie!
Thanks for reading! Have a wonderful night! -Monica
