So, this song has been stuck in my head.
My Warrior Dash run in on Saturday. Less than 48 hours. I packed my bag, and I printed my release paperwork today. I am beyond excited. BEYOND. It's CRAY, ya'll.
Five months ago when I signed up for this run, I was TERRIFIED. Excited, but terrified. I'm in good shape, speaking from a cardio perspective. But, strength? Nah, that ain't me. I made a plan to train and train hard until race time. Why? Because I'm a competitive bitch. *shrug* 25 days ago I started the Bikini Body Mommy challenge (I spoke about it a couple weeks ago, and it's all on YouTube, check it out.) I feel LOTS AND LOTS stronger. For the first time in my life, I have defined muscles in my ARMS! My ARMS!!! I have been doing weights (8 and 10 lbs...nothing crazy) and I'm more tone, and more strong. Now? I'm not terrified. I'm just excited. I feel like I"m going to KILL IT.
If I can finish strong enough to make myself happy, I will do a Spartan in 2015, and a half marathon before my 40th birthday. What the what?? I'm pushing myself. I'm working hard on ME. And, I love it.
