I manage a country homestead and the lives of my 4 babies ages 10,8,5 and 3. I LOVE TO RUN and NEED to keep healthy and fit for my SANITY!! Seriously....All problems are solved when I am running.

Making MY health a priority allows me to be the mother and wife that I need to be for them.

I can't begin to explain to you the weather outside right now. Yesterday is was ICE...as in we were worried about a SEVERE ice storm circa 1998.  This morning it was POURING rain, and then 20 minutes later snow flakes fell the size of my nose. Seriously.

I had to make an executive decision. I say executive because I have complete control over my fitness. Yesterday I made the executive decision to be EXTREMELY lazy and eat potatoes at 9pm (for which I am suffering for today )

Anyway, I was scheduled to do a 10km run today, and a 10km hill workout tomorrow. I knew that if I did not get my run today I would steer off course.  I begged any friend I had to put me on their guest list at the YMCA today so I could at least hit the treadmill.  BUT then I realized that TOMORROW is supposed to look like today BUT also be 15C COLDER. 

So out I went......... 10km in 54minutes.  ;)  No excuses.

 It made all the difference in the world having THESE PUPPIES...a gift for me from the best running partner ever ;)

The YMCA will just have to wait until tomorrow...maybe ;)
