Inspiration, Thank you NYCM

Sometimes social media really pulls through. . . and this morning Twitter did just that.



I woke up this morning not at ALL wanting to work out.  I think all these WODs that I’ve loved doing have worked my body in a new way, leaving me with a new soreness along with it.  Go figure.

Well after getting woken up by a paw punch from the dog telling me it was time to go outside (Gus doesn’t understand time changing), I got the furball up, grabbed a cup of coffee from the lobby, and came upstairs to check the blogs, email, twitter, etc.

I couldn’t help but be inspired by all the NYCM love and support out there.  People were ready to run, excited to finish 26.2 with 40,000 of their closest friends.  Not to mention, my brother and sister-in-law were running in their own marathon/half marathons (Raleigh/Durham)…so I needed to suck it up and get out there.

I was already dressed for the treadmill, an easy work out.  So I sucked it up, changed my clothes (a little overkill, fleece, gloves and hat for 50ish), and got out there.

And a 5k later…I couldn’t have been happier with my choice.

Hello negative splits.

I finished off my run with a quick 10 miles on the gym stationary bike.


PS:  Shout out to my brother in law who finished 10th in his marathon, and sister-in-law who killed the half with a 1:36 PR.  I have fast family members. . .

And now it’s time to run a few errands, including picking up breakfast, a few groceries, and a possible birthday gift for the husband! 🙂  I am excited!

Question of the Day:  What’s the last thing that inspired you?
