Walked for an hour and a half with a friend today. It was a beautiful day, and this was a nice way to get exercise while giving my legs a rest. Back to running tomorrow!

2 mile run today! It wasn’t great, but I’m making progress :)

A while ago, I talked about training for a half marathon. I kind of abandoned this when life/work got in the way, but today, I decided this is really something I want to do. SO…I have decided to register for my city’s half marathon. It will be in May of 2015. That gives me 9 months to prepare, and I know I can do it. This is the motivation I need to run consistently.

I haven’t registered yet, but I’m going to as soon as I have the money. I have to make the commitment so I have something to work toward!


I am feeling super motivated today!!! I had a productive morning, ran 1.25 miles, walked for 30 minutes, did two wall sits (2:00 and 1:30) and had a healthy nutribullet smoothie for breakfast. I’m also packing carrots, hummus, and a salad for my break at work tonight.

Honestly, I just hit a really low point and it motivated me to get myself back into the shape I was in last year. It’s so easy to ease back into old habits, and I’m sad that has happened :( BUT these bad feelings have finally given me the motivation I need!

7/19 and 7/20

7/19: The Color Run! It was a BLAST, and I’m proud if myself for running a 5k :)

7/20: 2 mile run. Found a new trail in the area and it’s beautiful. It makes longer runs more enjoyable!

Starting the day with some green.

7/19 update

Oof I am the worst at remembering to write in here. I wish there was a way to have both tumblrs logged in on the app on my phone?? Anyone?

Anyway, this week I did a 1.25 and 2 mile run (I forget which days) and I’m running the Color Run today! I’m excited :))


Oops, forgot to post that I DID run 2 miles the day I said I would :) I had to literally drag myself, but I did it. And felt better after :) now it’s time to kick it into gear for the color run!!


Ran one mile today! I’m going to run 2 miles tomorrow, along with some strength exercises.

Other goals for tomorrow:
- up my water intake
- take my vitamins
- eat more raw foods
