Here is my current list of motivational factors for running:
1. Being chased by a killer.
2. I’m in the Hunger Games and there is only one block of cheese in the Cornucopia.
3. A tornado.
4. An ice cream truck.
That’s it so far. Not too bad. But, I’d like to improve on my current list so I’ve decided to sign up for a 5K run. It’s called The Color Run and looks like my kind of party! The money has been paid and a friend roped in, so no backing out now! It’s in about 2 months, so I’m going to try training for it using the C25K plan. And maybe, just maybe, my thighs will shrink in the process. Or, I’ll get a date with this guy.
Today is Day 3 of the Belly Fat Cure and so far it’s crazy easy. I will be totally amazed if I actually lose weight this way. Is it possible? I’m going to skip my weigh in this Sunday and step on the scale on Tuesday morning. That way it will have been a full week of “dieting.” Plus it’s also Put On The Pants Day that day!
I skipped the 5:30am Crossfit today and took my kids with me to the 9:30am class. I’m sure everyone was just thrilled to have my kids there. “What you doing?,” “Can I try?,” “My mommy has more bigger butt than you.” Ha ha. Nah, they were pretty good but not sure I’ll do that again.
So yep, I’m gonna be a runner. I know, a 5K is nothing for all you runner people, but it’s like tackling Everest to me. The thought of running is about as exciting as eating a “paleo pancake.” Ok, the pancake thing is even worse, but still. This is no small potatoes we’re talking about here. But the thought of random people chucking packets of colored powder at my face, has me intrigued. I’m gross like that. As Forrest would say, “That’s all I gotta say about that.”
