Sunday Bloody ^%@#'n Sunday

Dear Baby Jesus: Can you please make it stop raining?? Love, Gitchie

I don't know if your weather is anything like mine (Upstate New York.... hook a left at Satan's armpit and there you have us) but it's been raining for a while now. Our lawn is a soggy jungle and the ground won't dry enough for me to pester my boyfriend to mow. This has seriously held me back from running (fast walking) and after the near death experience on the treadmill I'm still a bit leery about the machine. So once again, trial by mud and fire this Saturday. I'm (almost) sure I won't die.

I may be crazy but...

Well, two 5k's in a weekend. I know what you are thinking... "Gitch, what are you doing??" The fall is just about here and I want to get into the swing of things before the winter is on us. I would have to wait a whole year (A WHOLE YEAR?!!?!) before I could do either of these again. 

So here it goes:
Saturday 9/10/11 The Spartan Sprint at the Blue Mountain Ski Area in Palmerton, PA
 Sunday 9/11/11 Bell of Hope 5k walk/run in Binghamton, NY

I'm sure this is crazy but I'm so very excited. These past few weeks have been an eye opener for me. I've been sober (as of today) 19 days. Now that may not seem like much to most people but this is the longest I've gone with out even touching a glass of wine. Cold sober peoples. Cold sober. There was this physically fit and active person inside me that was screaming to get out. Unfortunately, I shut her up with merlot and chocolate. Not anymore. I want to do the Tough Mudder in April of next year and giving in to being lazy and not following the things I know in both food and fitness is a waste of my potential. I've surrounded my self with people who are on the same track as me and I'm loving life. 

I can't wait to share with all of you.

Oops I did it again.

Well, I didn't sign up for The Spartan Sprint. I wanted to, believe me, but with the time frame and travel it's not enough time to plan accordingly. So to make up for it I'll be doing a flat land 5k (mostly walking really fast) on the 11th! WOOT! Motto for the next week: "Fake it till I make it"
