Sweat Pink, running, and life

Three totally random things and yet, all weave together like a tapestry.

Sweat Pink-earlier this week I got an email saying that I had been accepted as a SPA (sweat pink ambassador).  Basically it means that I am "tough and girly" (haha) and not afraid to sweat pink.  It's a great support system and it gives me another means to encourage and reach out to those in my own community!


Running- I'm behind in my half marathon training because of the knee issues.  I'm a little frustrated and starting to question my decision to run this.  Part of me feels like I should have planned for more time and then the other part of me has realized that quite honestly, I just don't like running long distances.  I like the 5K's and 5 milers but anything beyond that just seems like a chore.  So, I have come to the conclusion that it would have to be one super cool, special, awesome race to bring me out of half marathon retirement (One of the Disney races would be one of those).  And you know what- that's okay.  Of course, this could all change once the weather stops acting fickle and decides what it's going to be- this back and forth from cold to warm and sun and rain is messing with me! 


Life- well, life is just life- busy, nonstop, eccentric, extraordinary, and just overall crazy!  The calendar is crazy- I sit and go through my March and think it's pretty much gone already.  How did that happen?  (and it technically hasn't even started yet).  I have been working on work stuff (long days, meetings, etc), doctor's appointments (good visit- will chat more later on that), nutrition class stuff (yeah, I finally decided to just do the readings and quizzes rather than the projects as well- the time is overwhelming and something had to give), and the steps for health coaching (more on that later as well). 




So, that's a peek into what's been going on- will keep on truckin' along and know that Spring Break is a month away!

We will have pink towels for when you come to visit. Don't want pink sweat on my blue towels. No one is a weenie to chooses to run what they are comfortable running, especially for their health. Love you much.

Congrats on being a SPA! I am a new SPA too - we can figure it out together :)

Have you thought about doing your half marathon as a run/walk? That way you can still do it, but put less pressure on your knees...

Alicia- thanks! It's a little overwhelming LOL :) That is actually my plan for the half. I knew from the beginning I couldn't run the whole thing
