What motivation? 

It’s been a long time between races and staying motivated has been hard. 

I’ve done 93.7% of my runs in 2010 on the treadmill.  Initially it was good – it was private time with Rob Thomas and his buds from Matchbox20 – it was funky punk with my favorite guys from Green Day – now, it’s all I can do to not stare at the time and wait for the next Lady Gaga video to hit Vh1 (gaga oo la la). 

So I am looking for inspiration. 

I came up with this:

At Rob Thomas concert!

And this:

Rescue Children

and some of this:

Celebrate with chocolate!

And realized…I am blessed.  I am so ready to share about Rice Bowls and what I have learned.  I am ready to run my heart out in three weeks, 5 weeks, 9 weeks and so on.  Racing season cannot come soon enough.

The big giveaway starts on March 1st – come back – check it out – and see what happens.

Run on Friends!

    Well, if Lady GaGa Bad Romance and green chocolate nipple cake can’t motivate you, I’m not sure what can! Ooohhlala!

    Okay you, I’m going to publicly say a HUGE thank you for your very VERY generous “thinking of you” slice of happiness you sent me. I have been sooo down lately with whatever crap is going on with my sinus/head and I can’t even tell you how much this brightened my day! I will send email, and a public thanks on my blog soon! You’re the absolute best!!! Thank you!!!
