Suck It Up

I'm feeling pretty good today.  I thought was paranoid that I was going to get sick because Dustin has a full-fledged cold going on right now!  While I'm still not sure that it is behind me, I'm feeling good today and plan to get a good long run in today.  At this point in time, I'll take 5 miles as a long run.  I need to do something because I haven't worked out in a few days!  Yuck!  I have been eating pretty good, though, getting my veggies in.

In other exciting news, my friend Ashley has decided to run the half with me!!!  I cannot even tell you how excited I am that I'm not alone (not that you guys don't help me) in this process.  She is a much better runner than me and will probably eat my dust, but I'm fine with that.  Right now I don't think I'm going to set any specific time goals because I think I need to focus on FINISHING!

I'm a little nervous about my 5k on Saturday.  I was contemplating bowing out, but don't worry, I won't let myself do that!  I just know that I haven't trained as hard as I should have, so not doing it would be the easiest way to show that I didn't train.  I would be supremely PISSED OFF at myself if I did that, though.  It's only 3.1 miles, I can suck it up and push through it.  I might not go super fast, but I never expected myself to in the first place.  I think this will be a good test for me.

Hope everyone has a terrific Tuesday!  Biggest Loser is on tonight!


  1. If you are running 5 miles just for a work out, you should TOTALLY do the 5k! My first one is on Sunday. Super nervous!

  2. The 5k will be a blast!

    That's so wonderful about your friend joining you for the half marathon! What a great friend!
