Day 19 - New Shirts
I woke up with an excitement to run today. My new shirts came yesterday and I was dying to try them out! Yes, it truly is the small things in life that make me happy. The dingo and I put in 3.5 miles on our usual Thursday route. I felt pretty good, nothing to complain about. I practiced my "mental movie" of my best training run. It's amazing how much positive imagery can really help! I'm still working on my second mental movie about the marathon finish. I want to get it just right in my head (because I'm sure it will bear nothing in actual resemblence)! I also got my iPod working again....praise sweet baby Jesus! Two runs in silence is horrible, I've got to say! I didn't really look at all the songs on my "Workout 1" playlist after the system re-boot, so some oldie-but-goodie songs popped up during my run today. I think for the actual marathon I won't edit my playlist so much. I'm very connected to music. Almost every song I hear has some sort of personal significance. Hearing some of the music that I listened to when I initially started out on my weight loss journey was fun....and inspiring! I've also started a list of songs I want to buy from iTunes for my "Marathon Playlist". Whoever said running was an inexpensive sport was sorely mistaken! Of course needs vs. wants are different things, too! Well, I hear Caroline starting to stir. Braden is happily watching Power Rangers....gosh, when did he get so old to like Power Rangers?! That means my day needs to get going. I think we may treat the dingo to a day at the doggie spa today. He needs a good bath and teeth brushing!
