It’s been an fun-filled, busy weekend here in Chicago. These last few weeks of non-winter slush, snow, and cold have left me a bit energized, and apparently, I’m not the only one. And while I know that this space is usually reserved for my oh-so-exciting antics in Chicago, today, we’re turning the tables here.
Yep, you read correctly. Today, I’m excited to share some of YOUR news – some of the great things that you all are doing out there in runner/walker land…
From Michigan: former Chicagoan, current Cubs and Spartans fan, and friend Cindi keeps me smiling most days by posting about how she’s back on the track again – and training for her own Turkey Trot at Thanksgiving.
From Washington – Kelly is out there, knocking down 2+ miles by now, finding her way on the track – where (I hope she doesn’t mind me saying) she’s setting an awesome example for her two kids, who get to play while Mom runs – watching Kelly make health a priority. Nicely done!
There’s Diane, in Salt Lake City, who finds the humor (and wisdom) in whatever she’s doing, and despite a recent setback, is taking it one step at a time…
From Cincinnati, there’s Maura, who signed up for the oldest Turkey Trot in the land (and yes, even if you’re walking, it’s a good thing!)…
And there’s many, many more of you, out there, putting one foot in front of the other, just getting it moving. I just wanted to say I’m really, really honored that you’ve either written, or shared, or just told me what’s up with you lately – because it’s pretty motivating to know you’re out there, pushing too.
So, with that said, I’m looking forward to this week’s Turkey Trot on Thursday. I took the sticks out again on Saturday, (and didn’t maim anyone); and this morning, I hit up my first Pilates class (if I can walk tomorrow, it will be a small miracle). Couple that with three hours of power shopping today, and I consider that ‘cross training’.
So here’s to a great pre-Turkey Day week. If you haven’t thought about your Run Like Hell plan again recently, perhaps revisit it prior to going home. I know that I will!
Have a great Monday, and I’ll see you on the path!
