So for those of you who don’t know. I am a goal setter and a list maker. I like to write down my goals and make to do lists. Maybe this is the therapist in me, but these goals have to be objective. They have to be measureable in order to show progress. So for the month of August I have a few goals in mind:
- Run at least 50 miles
- Sign up for two races
- Log 1000 minutes of exercise time.
Race wise, I already have one 5k coming up, the Diva Dash on August 10th with my running buddy/sister in law. I also plan on doing the Tulsa Zoo Run in October and hopefully another one called the Neon Vibe 5k in November with one of my friends that is fairly new to the whole running scene. Hopefully once she sees the fun in these, I will get her hooked! Little does she know, I have plans for her! I need someone in my corner when it comes to this exercise business and her husband and mine are too much alike in the exercise department. My husband is the first one to say “I hear of more runners dying from running than I hear from people sitting on the couch.” That is my husband for you! I love him though and wouldn’t trade him for anything even though we vary differently in this exercise department!
On to other August Adventures, school starts back August 22nd. Since when do I have a 2nd grader?!? Luckily this weekend is tax free weekend, so guess where we are going this weekend? You got it, out into the stores with all the other crazy people trying to get good shopping deals. Now if only I can stunt my daughter’s “daddy long legs” so we can find pants that fit her better than we will be doing awesome! My daughter happens to be tall AND skinny! AKA a pain in the rear for Mommy to find pants/shorts that fit her correctly. To find jeans to accomodate these “daddy long legs” of hers than they are too stinkin’ big and even with the adjustable waist band hardly stay up on her hips. Than if we move onto shorts, these normal length shorts become daisy dukes on her and I just refuse to let that happen!
Oh boy oh boy oh boy! Let the fun begin!
