Other than working on a few articles for work and one freelance writing project (yep, that’s what I said…I’m gonna be rolling in the $$$$$$…well not really, actually haha) I’ve not really been on my computer lately. A lot of my energy this summer has been put toward teaching my history course at the community college and the pool 🙂 But there’s so much I want to share and hold myself accountable to so I need to get back into a routine. Reading Running Off The Reese’s obsessively every day does not count as a routine (wait, maybe it does?!).
It’s so easy to come up with excuses not to do certain things (it doesn’t help that I ran across this fab blog that gives you an excuse for basically anything!) Here are the things that have been keeping me from my usual routines:
1. Traveling to Florida/Michigan/D.C.
2. Drinking heavily
So let’s just say I need to get back on track with some stuff. Like sleeping. Eating well. Sobriety. Running (my favorite thing and yet every freakin’ summer I can’t bring myself to brave the disgusting, hot sticky heat!). While the Vegas Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon is still months and months away, I want to actually follow a 16 week training plan this time, rather than wing it for 12 weeks (like I did for the past two marathons: this one and this one). And yes, today I signed up for…..GASP!….a 5k race this Friday. I know, I know why spend the $ on a race that’s over in the blink of an eye? I can’t remember the last time I actually signed up for one. But this one is soooo cool! It’s the Vine to Wine 5k
Here’s what’s included: “spectacular mountain views, a performance gender specific tee, a commemorative wine glass and post-race party with wine samplings.” Vine to Wine 5k
Wooohoo…free booze. A perfect Friday night pre-party before hitting up the bars! Wait…wasn’t I going to lay off the booze and bingeing? Well, there’s always next week…
