yes. it is a bunny trapped in a tea cup.

*climbing onto soap box*

ahem ahem…

sometimes, i forget how important it is to be working towards something. when we aren’t moving forward, we tend to do the opposite or simply hold still. both, of which produce less than ideal outcomes. whether it’s a career goal – like a promotion or job change, or just something fun on the side — it’s healthy to have something you’re excited about reaching. 

if you aren’t avidly working towards a finish line of sorts…  the pent up frustration over your motivational standstill only snowballs, making you unsatisfied and creating an unproductive void. 

want to redo your living room diy style?  make a list + start right now.
thinking about polishing your photography skills? start a photo blog.
considering a venture into a new career? polish that resume tonight.

what are you waiting for? the sooner you have a goal, the more you can apply yourself to get there.

 all of this self-advice came flooding back when i set my new goal: completing the half marathon { in october.} every time i train and go for runs, i truly feel better!
ok i’ll stop now. just sayin’. you’ll feel better.

have a great monday!

bring it, monday...via ffffound.

here we go… a friend motivated me to run the columbus nationwide better health + fitness 1/2 marathon — sunday, october 18th. aahh. we started what we’re calling “preliminary” training today. which basically consisted of a 3.4 mile run during lunch { with maaaaybe two teeny weeny walk portions } a real-life-following-a-chart-training begins in about a week. as i’m sitting here, i just noticed my leg muscles tighten and my feet start to ache. oh joy. *pulls out foot massager* 

but this means i will obviously need shiny new running shoes that fit like a glove { er… sock? } and probably additional dry fit running attire { i said probably.  }

however — i am excited to have a challenging goal to work towards. i just wanna be able to say “i did it!” ** stay tuned **
