Above is what hangs on the wall in our office. A constant reminder of our family’s commitment to fitness.
What you see is a framed *** that my mom had made for me after I ran the Marine Corps Marathon in 2000. Ten years ago, last weekend, I ran my first (and probably only) marathon. It was an amazing experience…complete with sassiness, sore legs, Tootsie rolls at mile 22, a nice view of Watergate where I stopped to say Hi to my dad and stretch my legs, a running finish, and a race for a cure. Oh, and there was a space blanket, purple Team in Training comradery for all of us where purple tanktops, and a dad who stalked me rode the metro around DC to different stops along the course to cheer me on!
It was an amazing experience. And one I’d like to repeat…but the chances of that happening with little people around is slim. Really, none. (Perhaps when they are older…training for a marathon with little people around takes more time and commitment than I have to offer right now.)
Half marathons will do. They are my thing.
I’m back to hitting the pavement and have run several miles this week. Tomorrow I’ve got my final long run before the half marathon in a few weeks. This is what my Saturday will look like.
Bible Study. 10 mile run. Drink water. Eat. Stretch. Eat. Epsom salts bath. Drink water. Stretch. Sink into the couch. Eat. Drink water. Stretch. Another Epsom salts bath. Eat. Drink water…
(You get the idea. Most of the day will be centered around this long run…and now you see why training for longer than a half marathon would prove difficult!)
I have made the Commit to Fit Pledge. Have you?!?
If so, then this giveaway is for you. It’s for $100. 100 bucks. 100 smackers. For you to invest in your fitness goals.
For me, it was the half marathon entry fee.
For you, it could be a series of 5K entry fees. Or a gym membership. Or Zumba classes.
This money is to help you reach your personal fitness goals. (Please note, proof of purchase will be required before your reimbursement can be sent. Winner and I will work out all those details. Failure to show proof of purchase in a timely manner will result in a new winner being chosen.)
