Time To Lace Up: Doing What Feels Right!

At the beginning of the year...

I talked about how I didn't have any concrete plans for 2013! (That, I didn't have any goals set out before me!)

I also said that...

I would let myself go with the flow and do...

Whatever felt right!

If anything...

I was in no rush to commit myself to a goal as...

I wanted to digest 2012 for everything it had to offer before I made any decision to do anything!

To be honest...

There was a need for me to slow down and catch my breath until I was ready to get after it again! (Whatever that it would end up being in the end!)

As you know...

I already committed myself to the OPA Ontario Championships (just a couple of months ago) but, after thinking things through...

I've also come to commit myself to a few new things that feel right! (I sure have!)

Those being...

Things I know I am ready for both in body and mind!

Ready!

Knowing that...

My decisions were not rushed and that...

I thought out my plan of action...

That made me realize that yes...

I am prepared to put things into motion!

Yep!

So...

Here are a couple more things I will now be working towards this year! (This list may grow as time goes on!)

First...

After meeting up with Krysten from The Misadventures of a Darwinian Fail back in January...

She mentioned that I sign up for the Goodlife Marathon in May (in Toronto) alongside many other FitFluential Peeps that would be coming down! (That includes Pavement Runner from San Francisco!)

I wasn't quick to commit to running (although I committed to going for obvious reasons) because, well...

I hadn't run since my half-marathon back in September of 2012! (And, I still haven't yet!)


With that in mind...

I've registered for the Loblaw 5K! (It's not a long distance but I am A-okay with that as a FUn starter race!)

And, to make things even more awesome...

SuperFit signed up for it too!


Without a doubt...

I can't wait to get my sneakers back on...

And...

To be running a race with SuperFit alongside some amazing FitFluential Ambassadors!!! (I seriously cannot wait!)

My first pair of real running shoes!
Mizuno Wave Inspire 7s!
Oh the memories :)
My second pair of Waves! (Inspire 8s!)
I received them as a gift from Mizuno before my half-marathon!

What a great first event of the year don't you think?!

And for my second scheduled race...

SuperSly approached SuperFit and me last month about signing up for the Super Spartan Race in June in Mont-Tremblant! (If you don't remember SuperSly, he is one of my friend's with whom I ran the Spartan Beast with last year!)


He proposed that we run together as a team of couples (3 couples total) and that...

We stay the night in Mont-Tremblant after our race! (The idea is to race, have a nice dinner and stay the night!)

Obviously...

We couldn't reFUse that idea! (I mean, how could we?!)

So...

We registered for it!

No doubt...

It's gonna be FUn!

Aroo!

Now...

Having shared with you my current plans for 2013...

I know I'm doing exactly what feels right for me and...

I look forward to everything I have committed myself to thus far! (Maybe I'll add a couple or few more things as I go along but, for now, this is what I've got going on!)

I must admit...

My feet are ready to FUreakin' run again!

  16. Awesome! That will be so much fun for you! And I am glad you opted for the 5k right now...with all the training you are doing for your competition, this will allow you to give both events the attention they deserve. Then Mt. Tremblant should be a ball--not to mention beautiful. Good for you!
