Does that sound right? Sounds right in my head…  So I have been so unmotivated and I’m not even going to step on the scale to see the damage, but I need a kick in the pants for motivation.  The night before last I stumbled across a marathon training sight.  It happen to have a 5k training program too so I stewed overnight in my head about training.  I am not a runner, it is not my favorite thing in the world, but damn it feels good when it is done!  Also, I suck at reaching my goals, so I thought instead of making my 8 wk training plan my goal to complete, making the 5k (which I will register and pay for) be more of the goal.  See my thought is if I pay for the 5K I will be more apt to train (Evil Laugh- MAHHAHA).  So I set up my own training program – busted out Word and made it all official with a printed sheet hooked to my fridge – see the motivation!  Yet I am so unmotivated to start…. WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME!?!?!  It’s extremely frustrating when I feel this way.  I’m excited to get started, but the motivation slacks.  The 5K I chose is  The Zombie Run in Seattle August 17th – that is a ways away, and there is another one in June shortly after I finish my 8 wks training; I may sign up for that one but it is 7.5 hrs away from my house – I mapquested it 🙂  But it is by Mount St. Helens so that could be a fun educational stop for my 3 little monkeys!

Sadly while looking for 5k’s to sign up for, I bumped into the news about the Boston Marathon bombing.  How Heartbreaking ~My heart goes out to EVERYONE!  A big thank you to all the loving people and volunteers who stepped up and helped everyone in need!   Such a sad day for such a joyous occasion….
