I went for runs when I really didn't want to.
I was fortunate to be able to go for runs when I really did want to. (thanks to my extremely supportive husband who put the kids to bed numerous nights while I was out for a run.)
After 3+ months of hard work, I think I'm ready. I know this is no marathon or anything, but EIGHT MILES is not something that I ever thought I could do.
My work ethic pretty much sucks, and I'm not too good at setting goals (and actually reaching them) when it pertains to exercise (or anything else), so I am pretty excited to run this race tomorrow.
Oh...and did I mention that the race is on Mackinac Island?
...and that my amazing in-laws will have the kids. So Dan and I have two days up-north...with no kids...and a couple of Spaniolos! Yay!
...and here's a little Pinterest loveliness I found on the topic.
Wish me luck!
