You will always remember your first long race or triathlon, but if it was awhile ago, just how much? Yes, it may have been life-changing and left you with skills you use daily, like long-term goal planning, an understanding of delayed gratification, excellent time management and perhaps healthy changes in your diet. Crossing the finish line might still be a vivid memory, but how about the feeling you got when you signed up and committed? Or the way the upcoming event was constantly on your mind and, in many ways, defining who you were?
This is a reminder, a reality check, YOU CAN have that living-life-in-full-color feeling again! You can blow away the cobwebs from the often mind-numbing day to day lives we fall into. You can commit again and shake up your world! Perhaps an ultramarathon or trail marathon to light your fire?

If you've followed along with me at all... You know I was STRUGGLING to get my butt out the door after our never ending winter. So now I've got good news, and I've got realistic news. The good news is... the better weather and longer days really did put a SPRING in my step. I've been getting in my miles, getting the ol' tush out the door, and the running fire is re-lit! The realistic news? When things are going good its easy to go overboard! I put in a hard effort long run on Sunday, and followed it up with two more hard efforts. Do you know where this story is headed? Me too. Yesterday I woke up (on Global Running day no less!) and my body wasn't just telling me I needed the day off, it was screaming. Instead of pushing through it and getting out there so I didn't ruin my streak, I took the much needed day off. Listen to your body, it knows you best! The rest and recovery days are just as important as the hard efforts!
Baby Goat, an admittedly (not quite as) obsessed runner happy I took the break so I can get back out there today.
