Entry: MOTIVATION... Monday, June 01, 2009



Here we are again!  It's time to get my groove on and drop some poundage.  I'm going to get everything back in gear and start running again.  I've got a race calendar:

JULY 18
VESTCOR BRIDGES 5K (NIGHT RACE)

AUGUST 7 - 8
TOUR DE PAIN (4 MILE BEACH RUN 8/7 P.M., 5K 8/8 A.M., 1 MILE 8/8 P.M.)

AUGUST 22
SUMMER BEACH RUN 5K (NIGHT RACE)

SEPTEMBER 26
DISNEY'S EVEREST 5K, OBSTACLE COURSE (NIGHT RACE)

OCTOBER 24

NOVEMBER 1
EVERGREEN PUMPKIN RUN 5K AND 10 MILE (GOES THROUGH A CEMETERY!)

NOVEMBER 14

NOVEMBER 26 - THANKSGIVING DAY
OUTBACK DISTANCE CLASSIC (ANOTHER MUST... TRADITION!! RACE EARLY MORNING, PIG OUT MIDDAY)

DECEMBER 6
FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS 5K

DECEMBER 31 - GAVIN'S BIRTHDAY
VYSTAR GATOR BOWL 5K (DOUBT I'LL DO THIS ONE, SEEING HOW IT'S HIS BIRTHDAY BUT IT'S A MIDDAY RACE AND GOES ON THE PARADE ROUTE DOWNTOWN. THERESA AND I DID IT YEAR BEFORE LAST.)

These are the races I want to set out and do this year.  I'm going to start training tonight to gear up for the races in the fall season.  There's a 10k, a 13k and possibly a half marathon in there somewheres.  It's ambitious, I know, but I have to set high goals to give me good reasons to stick to it.  Doing it for myself never sticks.  But if I do it for training, then I'll complete it.  I'm 140 pounds right now.  I hope this season, I can drop some of those pounds, and put up some of my best numbers ever.  I'm going to try and keep track of my weight loss, running progress, motivation, recipes, and just general stuff here.  Just like the good ole' days.  :-D

Hopefully, I REALLY WILL BE THERE cheering you on. Either that or home babysitting so I can have a little Gavin and Auntie Susan time. :)
