Good afternoon!!!
I am just taking a lil break from work, thinking I better go for a run. I am trying to get inspired. Then I remembered what I was doing last year at this time, and I think, “why am I even hesitating in regards to going for a run?” Just do it!!!
Here is a blog I wrote last year right after I completed an Olympic Distance Triathlon…..
I’m soo happy right now. I was honestly intoxicated when I signed up for the triathlon online at 2am on June 1st, but it was one of the best things I’ve ever done. Michael and I “trained” this summer. We really did “tri” to train, but with my brothers wedding and other summertime fun, we didn’t do as much as we should of…but I am pleased to say, we finished with flying colors.

Our day started at 4:30am when our alarms went off, we walked to Tims and got our coffee, and headed down to 2nd beach, the officials wrote our numbers all over our body’s. Then we got our wetsuits on and made our way to the ocean,

Crazy feeling of anxiety and anticipation as we headed for the start line. Wow, the markers that we have to swim around are WAY further than I had trained for. BANG, off we go, I hold back for 15 seconds or so before I head into the ocean because I didn’t want to get clobbered by the hard core’s!
k, I won’t bore you with the swim details. Just know it was soooo tough, so rough and I didn’t think I would make it. 1500 meters later and somehow…I made it through.

Then the bike. a few accidents around sharp turns. even spectators taken out. so many bike tires popped, 4 insanley tough hills…but again… somehow, on my own, in my own world…made it….40km..(I’m tired just writing about the whole event)
Then…the run! I thought I’d be sooo on fire for the run since I run so much, but after everything leading up to that point, hmmm can I quit now!!! My 10km run was a feat on it’s own, But seeing my friends Rick and Andrea, and Mike‘s mom (and Mike cuz he finished before me) made me have that much more oommph to get my butt across the finish line!!

It’s been a great day! We are ready to train for next year, but also put our focus now back on voice over’s, our band, our business and everything else we do!!!

XOXO

How do you get motivated to workout? I know it’s hard sometimes, but we just gotta give ‘er! ;)
