Are you familiar with virtual races? I'm new the virtual racing scene, but I believe that I'm going to enjoy it. I think one of the benefits about a virtual race that I like is that you can truly make it your own (which is exactly what I've needed to do lately) 

A virtual race is just like an organized race except that you decide in most cases which day you'll run it.You create your own route. Set your own time, and then run or run/walk or walk the distance. And with Running On The Wall  not only are there several races to choose from, but the race packet is awesome!

I registered for the She Believed She Could So She Did 10K and
I received an awesome tank (super soft material), race bib, finisher medal, and She Believed She Could sticker.

I had planned to run the race this weekend. In fact, I was excited about it because I want to wear my tank top next week! I won't wear race gear, or hang up my medal until I have completed the race. So my plan was to run this weekend - my race - my way. 

However, my body said otherwise. I picked up a virus, have a slight fever, not so nice cough and a super nasty sore throat. So, it's mandatory rest for me. 

But one of the benefits about a virtual race is that I can postpone my race and run it when my body allows. I hear people say, but how do you know that someone actually ran the distance? Like many things in life, virtual racing is an honor system. But, I've personally watched people cut corners in an organized race. We've all heard of people who don't run a race but jump in at the end to finish making it look like they ran it. A virtual race is your race. To me, if you don't do the distance, or the race, you are cheating yourself. It's the same (for me) as an organized race.

With Running On The Wall, in addition to several races to choose from, I found the prices to be reasonable especially for all of the cool things that come with the bib. Overall, I'm super excited to be running with Running On The Wall. I look forward to many more races with them. 

Stay tuned... for my results for my She Believe She Could So She Did 10K

*****update 10/12/15
Wow this virus has been a tough one. I'm still not 100% well, but I was finally able to get out and run my 10K! This was my first time doing some heart rate training. I had to keep it slower than normal and still struggled with keeping my heart rate in range. The congestion was tough at times, but I finished.

Self Care Is Not Selfish It's Necessary

It's not selfish to take care of yourself. It's not selfish to take care of yourself. It's not selfish to take care of yourself. And I'll say it just one more time in case you didn't hear me. It's not selfish to take care of yourself. I have found through experience that when I'm not taking care of myself, not only do I suffer but my family suffers. So ditch the mom guilt and take the time that you need! I have a tendency to keep pushing my needs aside until I reach a breaking point. We've had a very busy fun summer so far. However, I've struggled to get some quality ' me ' time to decompress. I'll spare you the meltdown that ensued. But the reality check that followed prompted me to take action.

Running My Life

Wow, has it really been 2 years since my last post? I suppose that I allowed life to get in the way. For any faithful blog readers, I apologize. Although, I'm not sure how many people actually read blogs anymore. I think most people use other social media platforms.  (By the way, drop by and say hi on Insta. )  But for some reason, each year when I pay for my google domain, I can't seem to let it go. As silly as it sounds, this little space is mine. And lately I've been struggling with ownership and acceptance. And my domain renewal was a not so gentle reminder that I have a voice .  Seriously, you'd think by 48 that I'd have this figured out - nope - apparently not. However, I am wise enough to know that we have a choice to allow situations to harms us or make us stronger. I'm choosing to let this mid-life quandary make me stronger. And because of this, I'm setting goals, taking charge, and reexamining priorities.  Movin' on... 

When The Planner In You Must Be Flexible

In case you haven’t figured this out by now, I’m a planner. I know - shocker right?!? :) So although I love substitute teaching, it’s making the planner in me anxious. And it’s been reeking havoc on my workouts. Basically the morning of or maybe the night before, I find out if I’m working. So my day ( that I thought I had planned ) can be turned upside down in an instant. But, truthfully, isn’t that really the same with everyone?
