Pity Party

Yesterday I went running for the first time in 2 weeks. 

Until May, I was on a streak of running 100 miles or more every month in 2014. And now, suddenly, I’m in a funk. I can’t seem to figure out how to make my runs fit in my busy, end of the school year schedule. 

I really need to get my act together! The Grand Island Trail Marathon is in 6 weeks, and I’m not ready. (Luckily, Stephanie’s running it with me, and she’s not ready either…so that makes me feel a little better…HA!)

But really, what’s my deal? It’s clearly race season. The weather is ideal. Perfect really. And I’m just not doing what I need to do.

Today, I was messing around on Facebook and feeling REALLY jealous of everyone that did triathlons today. Last weekend was exactly the same. I sat there and looked through all the pictures and saw those amazing accomplishments and was completely jealous! It’s pathetic really, I’m having a little pity party over here, wishing I was out there racing.

And then it hit me, there is literally nothing stopping me from doing the things I want to do. Those races are completely within my realm of possibilities, I just haven’t taken any initiative to sign up for anything. (Plus, I always remind myself how much I dislike swimming…why does everyone think duathlons aren’t as cool as triathlons?!?) 

Anyways, it’s time for this pity party to be over. I WILL do better this week! Let the training begin!
