Weekly Chase!

Is it time for another Weekly Chase? Already?????

Thank you Mindy Molly for hosting the weekly chase (Blog links are in the image below).


Road Runner Girl

In case you missed it, here is what I chased last week
1) Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate - Done! I started taking my BIG water bottle to work and filling that up. 
2) Don't over eat in the name of "carb-loading" - 1/2 good, 1/2 bad. I did well at work, and HORRIBLE at home, birthday parties, and the valentines dinner at my in-laws. 
3) Run 2 days - Fail. I rested and relaxed this week.
4) Organize my closet - Nope. 

Sometimes, we just have a bad week with our goals and you know what? It's OKAY.  I'm not making excuses, I'm owning it. That's right, I ate birthday cake, chocolate covered strawberries, Shake & Bake Chicken and LOVED it! 

Next Sunday is my very first Half Marathon, and I'm SO excited. I think I told EVERYONE at church, birthday parties, work and maybe even a few total strangers at CVS that I was running in a half marathon. I couldn't help myself!! How can I help but get excited? I have NEVER trained so hard, and looked forward to a race so much in all my life. Even in my swimming days, training for states (I was an alternate in my Senior Year - yeah. ... don't let the title fool you, I wasn't fast! - haha) It is FINALLY here and I canNOT wait!!!! 

So, what am I chasing? 

1) Hydrate!  
2) Run my last two training runs - Tuesday / Thursday
3) Fold / Put away the laundry - by Wednesday
4) Wash the dogs / dog bedding - by Wednesday 
5) Dust my living room / Sweep and Mop - Thursday

Love Challenge - 
Discuss 2 new ideas, hopes and dreams for our future with my husband.  If you are a long time reader of my blog (which, only my husband really knew it existed for the first couple months) you may have seen this post from last February. I participated in a love challenge. It was a challenge to love your spouse in THEIR language. My husband LOVES to talk about ideas, "what ifs" and dream. Sometimes we don't take time to discuss life - I think it's important to get back into that. So, babe. Let's talk! 

Question: Who is racing this weekend?!?!?!!!
