Simple.Lose 5lbs. Follow marathon training and do 1 thing every day that scares you/ helps you better yourself.
Day 1: Today I woke up at 5:20am to work out before going to work because I knew when I got out of work at 5:30pm I wouldn’t want to work out knowing that I had so much homework to do.
A couple weeks ago I sent my copy of Runner’s World to Lauren Fleshmen to get it signed (I am a dork) and I passed along a little note about my blog/a brief history of my running and how motivating she is.
She not only signed it but wrote a note on her “Believe” stationary. It says:
“Dear Caitlin, You’ve been a warrior through the ups and downs. Go easy on your spirit and forgive yourself for any undesireable consequences of past actions. Today is NEW! I’ve made incredible combacks with that daily reminder. Recognize EVERY good thing you do. Sincerely, Lauren.”
and she signed the copy of RW saying
“The greatest change comes from a place of love for yourself. You know this already but remind yourself daily. It works! Lauren Fleshmen”
SHE IS MY IDOL. OMG
