Oh Hi There, August!

Is anyone else in total and complete denial that its already August? I mean, seriously, didn't 2011 just start? We're well into the second half of the year here, people!

Wanna know how my marathon training is coming along?

Its not.

I haven't run in weeks. Yes, I said, weeks.

Its awful. I don't even feel bad for not running. I am having trouble determining how I went from this to completely unmotivated in less than three weeks. I guess that's life.

I am not 100% committed, but I'm pretty sure I'm going to run today. I think I'm ready to get back into the swing of things and this time, I need to make sure that I stick with it. November is going to be here before I know it and I really don't want to be stuck trying to psych myself up to run 26 miles when I know I'm not physically prepared.

So, that's it. August is here, I need to run. No, I want to run.

If I say it, it must be true, right?

I want to run.


  1. I totally hear you on the running. I have a half marathon coming up in less than two weeks (R&R Chicago) and I have absolutely ZERO motivation and am woefully undertrained. Good luck!

  2. Can I just say...I feel you on all these things. I have no idea how it got to be August. It blows my freaking mind.

    As for the running... While I'm not running distance like you are I'm trying to work up to being able to run a mile (sad I know...but I physically have never been able to do it). I'm at .35 miles now...and it only takes me like 4 mins to run - but I swear those are the worst and longest 4 minutes of my day. I DREAD them. I can't even say I feel good after them. Though I am glad I do it. It makes me wonder how I'll ever be able to handle the full mile though. So I feel you.... i hope your running mojo comes back soon. Send some my way when you find it!!


I'd love to know what you think...
