Well, it's Monday!!!!!! It's kind of overcast and cold outside. Most people are off work today because it is a holiday but we are open. It was a whirlwind weekend but it was all good EXCEPT the Little Man came down with the Greensboro Yuck!!!!! Fever, a faucet for a nose and congestion in his chest with a cough. He managed to enjoy some time at the McDonald's for his little birthday party and then some fun with 2 friends that came home with us. It was a lot of fun having 3 little one's in the house. They all kept each other entertained. They are stair-steps. 5-4-3-Literally. 2 boys and a girl. The girl may have been the youngest but the boys would do whatever she said. It was GREAT!!!!!!!
Well, I have made the big decision. I had posted a couple of weeks ago about getting ready for this race in February.....well, that has been put on the back burner, cancelled my time off at work and came to realize that the choice that I was making to try and push myself to get ready for a Half Marathon in 6 weeks was a bit----CRAZY!!!!!! That was not the choice that needed to be made and the pressure was unreal. So all of that being said, I have cancelled time off, I have cancelled time at the beach in my most favorite place to stay in the world and have chosen to set my sights on a different race that is further out which would give me more time to train and then who knows, I may venture back to Myrtle next year. This was just not the year. Man, that is so hard to say, swallow and even write. At the same time it is a huge burden off. So grateful for the choice even though it was hard.
On the other hand, I have a "friend-sister" that lives in Georgia that we have been Facebook-Messaging each other for over a week. See, I call her "friend-sister" because she is the daughter of the people that live next door to my parents in North Ga. They consider me their grandchild but Tami and I are close enough we could be more like sisters. The funny part is that there is NO blood relation whatsoever. ANYWAY, we were talk/messaging and she is dealing with the same things as far as making the time for the gym, put on a few pounds here and there and we both want to get back to where we are. She is getting into a "program"/"challenge" at her church with a group of ladies. So in all of this, we have chosen to keep each other accountable with Facebook and texting and phone calls. I have also suggested that she consider the race in September....how fun would that be? Now, I am off to get to work on my co-worker to talk her into doing September with me..........I think maybe if I beg and plead......We will see........I will keep you posted.
For now, it's back to work and then maybe to the gym tonight because I didn't make it this morning. Have a WONDERFUL DAY!!!!!!!!!
