I was too optimistic and ambitious last Sunday ! πŸ™ˆ
2 races on same weekend... Who got this wonderful idea ?
.
Here is the story :
I have registered for PZU Half Marathon last August, with hope than I would be ready to run the distance within 2 months from my comeback on running tracks.
.
Of course, I've sold the bear before I've killed it, my longest 2017's run is 12 km...
With 6km from Armageddon Challenge on Saturday + 21 km on Sunday... even a blind person can see the trap πŸ˜…
.
When I picked my start package to get the tee-shirt, unfortunately I liked my race number 4334 and motivation came !! Which is bad in my case as not trained at all for this distance πŸ˜‚
Then I met Hillary Kiptum Maiyo, in sport shop, Kenyan half Marathoner, who won last year and also this year too πŸ’ͺ🏼
All these conditions mixed pushed me to not give up & to be part of it... uuup's 😊
.
No time target for this race, finish it would be a great victory!

Men : 2971 on 6046
Age cat. : 652 on 1224

It's definitely not my best race.
When you are not trained for it, you get what you deserve !!

πŸƒβ€β™€οΈYa gotta give some to get some! Any one heard of that phrase before? πŸŠβ€β™‚οΈ
.
Before I began my lifestyle change, I was drinking 2-3 coffeesβ˜• a day with at least one nap some where in the schedule.πŸ˜ͺ A donut🍩 or two may or may not have been in partnership with the hot beverege...πŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆ
.
I remember coming accross that phrase in a lot of instagram posts and of course with the new knowledge I had to try it.πŸ€” I genuinely wanted to improve my health so I knew I had to suck it up and just begin the fitness part of my journey.πŸ‘Š
.
At first it was hard and dreadful. πŸ˜₯But the more I incorporated it into my life the easier it got.πŸƒβ€β™€οΈ The STRONGER i got and the more ENERGY i gained! πŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺ
.
It was just a matter of deciding when my "now" was. It's been about 10 months since I started and I am so greatful for that decision! #justdoit πŸ‘πŸ’™
.
⁉️So when will you start your day one?! As Autumn Calabrese would say, "you can do anything you put your mind to!" "Be better than your excuses!"πŸ˜πŸ‘

These little cards are how we start our day now. I've been into personal development for myself for awhile, and I grabbed these cards to pull for myself every morning as a way to start my days in a positive mindset. Then I thought, why am I only using them for myself?? So now, every morning as they eat breakfast and before I head out the door, Lucas and Lilah each pull a card, we read it together, and I explain it. They have really taken to it and I couldn't be more thrilled. We want to raise positive, ambitious, solution-oriented children (even if Jake does tease me about my "hippie, hocus pocus" ways sometimes πŸ˜‰) and having them begin each day with a positive affirmation makes my heart happy.
And having Lucas pull, "Happiness is my birthright"? You bet it is, kiddo. 😍
