A Fresh Start

Seriously, where did November come from?  Slow down!!!

It’s been almost 3 weeks since my half marathon and they have been 3 busy, erratic and lethargic weeks.  I have had some trouble mustering up motivation lately.   I have completed my 3 runs per week like planned but they have not exactly been quality runs.    Not to mention that my eating habits have taken a nosedive.  Enough is enough.

Today is the bright shiny start of a new month and the end of my lethargy.  (Fingers crossed)  As today is Friday and work is usually crazier, I did not plan to run just to eat a hell of a lot better than I have been.  Mission semi accomplished.   It’s a good thing I planned on running tomorrow and not today as I would have had to cancel and that would have just made me cranky. 

Last minute pirate…that’s fairy tale right?


 Yesterday ( Halloween!), we dressed up and had a potluck and that was the great part of the day.  However at 3:30 the network crashed and we lost all internet connectivity.  Well crap.  We left as usual hoping that it would be fixed by this morning.  No such luck.  We ran the entire day with no computers.  About the only thing the computers could do without the network was tell us the time.  And we lost our phones.   I think I put more minutes on my cell phone today calling other locations than I have in the last 3 months.  Poor phone.   So, yeah, work ran over today, I didn’t even get home until almost 8.  😦

 I think that part of my ennui was that I really wanted to find another half marathon to do before the end of the year, but couldn’t find one that fit with my schedule or budget.   Also with the time change coming, in years past I have always become a much bigger Slacker in November and December.  This year I want to be better than previous years, I am hoping that this blog will help keep me accountable!  Call me out if I get too lazy!!!!

New goal?

I have been looking at various running challenges for November and I may do one. I will post when I make up my mind.   I want to look more in depth tonight and tomorrow before I decide. I will post when I make up my mind. As for races, Spooner’s Cove 5 mile Trail Run, here I come!!!! C and I are also looking at a 10K Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving morning 🙂

So here’s to be being a little less of a Slacker going forward!

I hope everyone had an amazing Halloween!

Anyone else DVR’ing the New York marathon like me this weekend?   I know, I’m a big nerd!
