~ My babes out for a ride in BOB ~
And honestly, running is such a welcome relief. I recommend it to any other moms that are craving a few quiet moments. It's like a built in babysitter - one baby sleeps and the other enjoys the ride (while playing on an iTouch....another miracle worker). And I get to put on my headphones and take a good 30-60 minutes just to let my mind wander. All while preparing for my upcoming runs!
Speaking of which.....I figure the best way to ensure I don't fall off the wagon is to register....so register I did! If I have clear and defined goals, I'm less likely to make excuses not to get that run in. I'm thinking that around one race a month is realistic and thanks to some great friends and motivators, I've managed to plan it out through June. So here we go....the first race isn't until March so I have plenty of time to get myself ready:
March 13: Safari Park 1/2 Marathon
April 10: Black Mountain Trail Run (15k or 5k....haven't decided yet)
May 15: Coronado Bridge Run?
May 28: TOUGH MUDDER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
June 5: San Diego Rock 'n Roll Marathon
June 18: ASYMCA Camp Pendleton Mud Run
I'm excited! Let me know if you are interested in doing any of these with me. The more, the merrier! Jacqueline - you don't have a choice! :)
Stay tuned for Insanity results! As soon as the DVDs arrive, I'll be starting....well, if I can figure out where to fit it into my schedule. Maybe after I get the babies in bed. Thank goodness for early bed times and good sleepers!
Keep "doing your work." (that's what Samantha calls working out) I promise getting out for just 30 minutes a day for a walk or run will make a difference in how you feel, your attitude and your outlook.
