I’m so tired

I’m so tired

This is what I tell myself every day.  It’s the one thing that has been holding me back from doing my daily walk or run.  “Oh, start tomorrow Diane — you are too tired today.”  And tomorrow — it happens again.


But not today.  

Today — I decided the day would not end until I got my 12,000 steps in.  And so I opened the door, and went out.  5.6 miles and 13,500 steps later, I’m home.  Had a B.I.G. glass of water.  And……I’m stoked.  Like a freaking fire!

Not until this moment did I make myself remember that everyday, e.v.e.r.y. f.r.e.a.k.i.n. d.a.y. of my marathon training — I was tired.  But I made myself get up early, and dress, and go outside and do the 3 miles, the 6 miles, the 10, 15, 20 miles…..whatever the day required of me.  I was tired every day.  But when I got home…..  when it was all over, in the bag, DONE —- I was a freaking GORILLA!   Pounding my chest!  King of the World!

Ah – Ha Moment Diane.  Go Make It Happen!  Every day.

Ciao for now..Diane

About Diane

Ciao! My name is Diane. I'm a wife, a mom, a working professional, and a Weight Watcher from New Jersey. I started blogging in 2011, at 45 years old, when I was training for my first Half Marathon at Rutgers on April 22, 2012. Since then, I've lost 80 pounds, completed my Half Marathon goal and gone on to train for and run my very first Full Marathon. On Jan 13, 2013, I ran the Disney Marathon in Orlando, Fl! What an incredible day. As the saying goes -- "The person who starts the race is not the same person who finishes the race." I am forever changed! So now we move on to the next phase of this journey! Come along. We're in this together!! Ciao for now!
