Erin's Thotful Spot: 1

The Explanation:

I've been playing around with the idea of posting a weekly inspirational quote. I have a lot of friends who do "motivation monday" and other similar weekly posts, and... yes, I could have linked up with them but I wanted to be different.

Soooo, it took me quite a while to come up with something that was meaningful to my story.

Then, as I was reminiscing about our trip to Walt Disney World, I remembered how much my daughter LOVED meeting Winnie the Pooh in real life. She has a stuffed Pooh toy that she LOVES, and I never imagined exactly how MUCH she would love meeting that silly old bear, but she did [please excuse that extended rabbit trail].

So, inspired by my daughter and her current love for pooh, I bring you "Erin's thotful spot". A weekly posting of an inspirational quote that has fueled or encouraged me throughout the week.

In case you missed it, here is a video of when our daughter met Winnie the Pooh for the first time at Disney. Truly, it was such a beautiful memory.


The Quote: June 7th, 2014
When I think about the beginning of Marathon Training, I start to get a little anxious. The thought of going on those long runs, and leaving our daughter with family makes me sad. Not that she will be with family, but that she won't be with me. These last few months of Maternity leave have been the longest / shortest best days of my life. 

This quote focuses me back on that goal I set February 2013. I said I'd run the Goofy Challenge, and 2015 is my year to achieve that goal!
