This morning I did a little Insanity cardio/plyo circuit dvd.  Holy shit balls.  I always forget how hard those workouts are.  It was AWESOME though!!  I'm trying to eat really good and exercise like it's a last chance workout before I weigh in tomorrow morning.  I must have looked just like this while doing it:

I'm actually certain I did not look just like this. 

I don't care how I looked.  That Insanity crap is no joke.  I should do that more often.  Now I'm gonna try and drag my ragged ass up to the treadmill for 3 miles before we go cheer on the boys in their Sub-District bball game!  Go Wolves!!!

And speaking of insane.  HOLY WIND!!!  Does anyone else just get pissed off looking out the window at it?  I don't even have to step outside and it makes me angry.  Especially on a day when the sun is shining and it's warm out and you would love to just be outside all day.  Well, you can go outside.  You may end up getting blown 3 miles to the neighbors house, but go ahead. 

And last but not least.........Drum roll please...........

My kick ass on sale running skirts came in the mail today from Athleta.  SCORE!!!

On sale for $19.99.  Whoop whoop!!!  Scored 2 of these so hopefully I'll love them.  I feel much better running if I dress the part.  I'm not vain.  Just think it helps my mental game.  :) 

Happy Thursday everyone!!

A few of my favorite running quotes........

I love motivational quotes, pictures, sayings.  They're good for the soul and make me feel like I can accomplish what I set out to do.  I used some when the volleyball season started this year and it really helped the girls see they can accomplish what they set out to do.  Here are some of my favorites!!

I love this one!!  People constantly tell me they have no time for exercise.  They assume since I am a stay at home mom that I sit around all day with hours of free time.  NOT.  I know alot of people who are really busy that still find time to exercise!!

Just found this one today!  Love it and it will be on my fridge soon!

Or a bigger one.......which I think is happening to me.  :(

The "for the rest of your life" kinda scared me at first.  :)  But it's the truth.  If you want it you have to work for it!

I tell myself this when I want to quit.

I've started and now I know that I won't quit!  I love running and I love how it makes me feel!

Why I run......

I've been reading these really great blogs about why people run.  What keeps them motivated to get out there every day and just run.  I'm relatively new to all this running business, but after those first "great" accomplishments (running 3 miles without passing out/stopping/dying), I really "get it".  I'm not gonna lie.  I used to wonder why everyone that ran talked about it all the time.  I mean really????  Do we care about your time, distance, pace etc.  Now I'm that annoying person that talks about running.  How far I've gone, have to go, and how fast I was.  Or slow in my case, but who's keeping track!  I finally GET IT!!  It's addicting.  That feeling of pure accomplishment (or passing the "fast" beotch at the race) is the greatest in the world!

So, here is why I run.  Some are why I started running in the first place.  Others are why I will continue to be a runner from here on out.

Ode to the running shoe.......

Size 11.  And I'm not referring to my pant size.  That's my ginormous shoe size.  Who cares, you say!  I care.  I'm 5'3".  Yeah, you read that right.  I wear a size 11 shoe have a head the size of a watermelon and nothing in between stretched far enough to be called tall.  When my husband and I were dating, my future MIL asked me why I was wearing his shoes.  And she wasn't joking.  Not only are my feet huge, they are flat as a pancake.  I'm also bow legged and pigeon toed.  Major problem.  I was so bow legged when I was little my parents had to put Forest Gump braces on my legs at night to sleep.  Seriously.  And "f" off for laughing!!!!!   I have a hell of a time finding the right shoes.  Nothing was different when I began the search for the "perfect" running shoe.

We live on a ranch 21 miles from the closest town and 100 miles from a Walmart.  I rarely run on pavement.  This is my running "track" most days and while I love …
