Is it seriously only the 5th of June???
Today is rainy, cold and I am exhausted from my overflowing week in this hectic month of June. Today is one of those days that I am in no mood to make my mood better. I don’t want to run or walk or lift weights or swim or spin or anything. I would, however, like to curl up in a blanket and RELAX. For me, I fear, this challenge will be a fight most days.
But. I’m going to do it anyway.
It helps that I am working towards a goal. This year, Kyla and I have decided to sign up for a 5km race. But not just any old race. Oh no. That would be to
simple easy boring. No, no… we are doing
COLOR ME RAD
To be honest, I am not exactly certain what Color Me Rad even is. And, I am not sure if it will be rad either. Apparently as we run (?) we will be doused with powdered colors. It sounds dangerous to me. While I am sucking wind I will be inhaling synthetic powdered color?? Nevertheless, it is something to work towards that will, I am quite sure, be an adventure.
Here’s a little video to give you (and me) a sense of what this adventure is all about..
Sweet Jesus… the average age in this video is about 18!!! I am going to be like the old, decrepit Granny, hobbling the entire 5km and then choking and spewing on the “rad color”. (sigh)
By the way, yesterday I walked to and from soccer (40 min) and tonight, I am going to drag my sorry ass onto the treadmill. It won’t be pretty, but it will get done.
*Amendment* – In honor of full disclosure I feel the need to add this. I just got back from a walk outside (the sun peaked out the tiniest bit so I decided that was a bit of an improvement over the treadmill) and I feel awesome! Despite my best efforts to wallow in my self pity and miserableness tonight, the walk did wonders. It was great to breath in some fresh, cool air, connect with my music and just clear my mind. I literally did an extra loop around the block because I didn’t want it to end! Goes to show, eh!?!?!?
