Motion and Progress

Today I found myself reflecting on all the good things in my life. I am so thankful to be healthy and motivated. I am running a 50 miler in two weeks and though I don't feel ready for that distance, I will run with confidence and purpose. February is The Coastal Challenge, a six day stage race in Costa Rica. I can't wait! It will be an amazing adventure and so much fun. I've put my name in the lottery for Western States and will also try my luck for Miwok and Mont Blanc. Let's see what the lottery Gods has for me this year. If I don't get into these races, well, there is a lot more great races waiting to be run. No point sweating it. Last year when I didn't get into WS, I entered Big Horn and had a blast! Things happen for a reason.

The Holidays are quickly approaching and I like to go into winter feeling fit. Remember it is easier to stay fit all year than to begin all over again come January. Commit to a fitness regimen and keep off the extra winter weight. You will be so happy if you can do this. I had to include this picture of my daughter's dog, Bentley. He was so tired after trick or treating all evening that he fell asleep in in Halloween outfit. So cute!

"Do not confuse motion and progress. A rocking horse keeps moving but does not make any progress." Alfred A. Montapert

Your action for today is to look at one of your long-term goals and see if you are making progress towards it.

Have an extraordinary day!
Make 2010 your best year EVER.

I am a little bit afraid to look. I just might find out I am a rocking horse.
