why now?

I signed up for the Chicago color run months ago, and when I signed up for it, I was so excited to actually do something fit and active, and add it onto my list of accomplishments. When most people think of me, I’m sure they aren’t thinking ‘5k Runner.’ I wanted to prove people wrong.

Then I got lazy.

Then I got ‘too stressed’ over school work.

Then I sprained my ankle.

Then, today, while I was watching Sex and the City and drooling over Sarah Jessica Parker’s perfect 2002 stomach, it hit me on the head: DUH YOU’RE SUPPOSED TO BE TRAINING FOR A RACE, YOU COULD BE LIKE THIS BY NOW!

And I was like, “oh, yeah. that.” 

When I sprained my ankle, my dad told me that no matter what, I have to do the race. Even if I walk across the finish line, I just have to finish. And I plan on doing that. 

SO I’M BACK, because I need motivation, and I can’t do this alone and I want perfect-sarah-jessica-parker-2002-abs (SOMEDAY). 

Just finished week 1 day 1 of couch-2-5k to start preparing for the color run on June 2nd!! Without cheating!! I made it 2.49 miles around this huge street that is a block away from my apartment. It was HARD but I PUSHED through it!

Now, I’m laying on my bed with a fan blowing on me with no shirt on because I’m sweaty as a beast! I’m also rehydrating and once I feel human again, I’m making hard boiled eggs and a protein shake.

Phew!

Also, I hadnt showered yet this morning (thank god!) so YAY NO MAKEUP
