Get Into It

All Glory Comes From Daring To Begin

lasts night’s run turned into “how I met your mother” with tea and chocolate bundt cake.. 

8km tonight, zen style.

hold me accountable. 

<3

DAMNIT.

I was just looking over my recent posts and saw the one I just made a few days ago about running 15 miles this week. It’s 10:20, I have a class at 8:30 tomorrow morning, and I just ate a large bowl of spaghetti squash convered in delicious curry and peanut butter (don’t knock it ‘till you’ve tried it..); but sensibility be damned IM GOING FOR A RUN! 

ugh 

<3

hahahaha

Struggled through 4km of hurricane weather

SO WINDY! 

I felt like a fish swimming up stream, if the wind is still like this tomorrow I’m going to go insane. 

either way, a solid run :) (even though it wasnt the 5km I said I was going to do earlier).

In other news: I took some awesome action pictures of me doing a bridge, in which I look awkwardly skinny (which I’m definitely not) and also flexible (which I really want to be!). 

Also, ive decided that next week I’m going to run 15 miles, Which for me is quite a bit seeing as these past few weeks I’ve been running about 6. So I’m really upping my game here! 

This bucking up is partially due to the fact that I’m entering into a race for November 5th. You can run a 2.5km, a 5km or an 8km, and originally I was just going to do the 5 as a fun run (because this is technically my first race) but I really think that entering the 8 will be good for me, so I think I’m going to do that :) 

The 6am run didn’t happen

I woke up, fresh as a daisy (well red eyed and grumpy.. but whatever) and looked out my window only to see a hurricane greeting me.

Seriously though, insane wind and pouring rain.

I love running when it’s raining, don’t get me wrong, but fresh out of bed and having it be freezing and windy on top of it? ughh.. I’ll take extra sleep thank you. 

So here I sit at 8:20, deciding what I’ll eat for breakfast and consoling my yet-to-run-today self by saying that I’ll run at least a solid 5km after drivers training.

So stay tuned for that. 

I am retiring to bed at 10:25 on a friday night..

I mean, I’ll stay up and read in bed a little. But still, how cool am I?!

"Kind of cool" is probably what you’re thinking. 

But what if I told you I was waking up tomorrow morning at 6:15 to run 5km before my drivers’ training class at 9:30? Hmm?

You’re definitely thinking I’m more than just “kind of” cool, you’re probably thinking I’m straight up awesome. Especially because I’m almost 20 and should have earned my license years ago. 

Oh yeah, cool points all around. 

How do you let go of attachment to things? Don’t even try. It’s impossible. Attachment to things drops away by itself when you no longer seek to find yourself in them.
