This weekend I ran a 1/2 marathon. That is 13.1 miles for you non-runners. It has been 8 years since I have done that. You can read my confessions here. While running may not be the most enjoyable sport in the world, I have learned to love it. I am happy to say, that while I may be toting around a lot of extra weight- due to having 4 wonderful boys and 4 not-so-wonderful c-sections- I did it. I worked hard, I trained for months, and I finished the race without any problems- except having to walk a little. And today, despite the pain in my legs, I can still climb stairs, and I feel strong. If you are thinking I'd like to do that- but I just can't-- YOU CAN! You have to decide to do it and you can. I'll share more thoughts on this later. I could do this because I decided to and because I have an amazingly supportive husband. When he met me I was a runner. I am still a runner- even with four kids- because of him. He helps me out so much and watches the kids so I can run. If you are a mom, that is half the battle - finding the time, and having support of your husband. So challenge yourself- to anything- learn to sew, run a 5K, learn to cook something new, learn a new skill, find something you want to do or try and do it. If I can do it, you can do it too!
note: I know you come here for crafts & recipes...so I will attempt to post my running posts on this blog.
Thanks for reading! Hope you had a great weekend!
