Your Body Is A Gift

It was like I had a major light bulb moment. I mean for the last 6 years, weight loss has always been a goal along with getting more physically fit and stronger. And I've heard people say that you only have one body, and you need to take care of it blah blah blah...

But it's like I felt this on a personal level - like WAKE UP GIRL! You have ONE BODY. It's YOUR responsibility to take care of the GIFT that you have been given. I experienced this while I was in bed with pain in both of my feet. My right foot was throbbing from the arthritis, and my left foot was in as much pain from my plantar fasciitis.

Family, Life, and Marathon Training

Who knew that summer with a 3 year old would be so busy? As you know, Lil Man is our only child, and we are learning as we go. So I wasn't really prepared for the busy summer days, and I even ditched some of the programs that I had originally considered us doing. But we are having a blast at Hershey Park this year. And we are getting more than our money out of our season passes. We love the rides, but we also love the water park (What I Saw Today)


In addition to staying busy with Lil Man, and Hubby with his business travels, I am in full mode marathon training. This week I reached (I think) my highest weekly mileage ever of 34 miles. I'm pretty nervous that my marathon is fast approaching. So far other than being sore, my body is feeling ok. I do have a hamstring that's a little tender. So I know I need to be more faithful about foam rolling, especially with the mileage increasing.  



But I'm putting one step in front of the other, one more mile then another.
