|I Make Time. Not Excuses.|
I'd say it's pretty much my philosophy on how to live life. I know it's cliche, but life really is short. If you want something, get it. Don't wait around for that "perfect" time or chance. Truthfully, I'm not sure there has ever been a time in my life where the circumstances have been completely "perfect" to do anything. They're will always be excuses, whether it be with work, family, money, heartbreak, car troubles, depression, what have you. Put all that aside, and make time to REALLY live your life!
Soooooo, after my inspirational run-in at Dick's Sporting Goods, I hit the pavement for a solid 30 minute tempo run. Again, the weather conditions in Cleveland have been ridiculously amazing. I will take 75 degrees and sunny every day until fall! I gave myself a 10 minute warm up, and then ran 15 minutes around a 7:00min/mi, and then finished with a 5 minute cool down. I covered a little over 4 miles. I'm feeling well and energized, and looking forward to the Chardon 5K on Saturday! The weather is looking a little unfavorable (humid and upper 80s...hopefully will be at least in the 70's in the a.m. for the race), but I'm still hoping for a sub 20 minute finish. There should be some speedy chicas at this 5K to keep me on my toes!! We all need a good butt kicking here and there to motivate us to keep getting better!
Rest day tomorrow and shoe shopping, YIPEE!! :-D
