It may just be the caffeine talking but I am getting very excited for the ZOOMA run half-marathon next weekend.
I have no reason to believe I am in shape enough to PR this race, yet I can’t help but be excited to get out there and R.U.N.
Also, my college roommate is coming down and will be running her very first half-marathon. I can’t wait to experience this with her. She actually drove from Syracuse to Albany when we were in college to surprise me at the finish line of my first half, so it is all coming full circle now!
This week I’ve been closely monitoring my activity levels thanks to my new FitBit and I must say, I think this little toy is worth its weight in gold.
It has forced me to park farther away, take breaks at work to go for walks, and be more cognizant of the amount of time I spend sitting in front of my desk. I aim to hit 5.0 miles every day, whether through walking, running, or just moving around.
I saw that little guy on my walk yesterday. I’m hoping the increased activity will help with my long term weight loss goals but if not, at least I’m making more of an effort to stay active. I think it will help me feel better overall.
And one last thing since it is Friday and a holiday weekend is upon us. It’s the “final countdown..”
Only 2 more days until Arrested Development is back! If you need me Sunday, I will be on my couch soaking up every last pun and subtle joke.
