Ok here it goes....

So, it has been 3 months since I have written anything. I know I said that it wouldn't be so long until my next post, but I was wrong. I have been doing a whole lot of *thinking* about my blog but not so much *doing*. I'm in this war with myself about what to write. "Do I want my blog to be just about clients or do I want it to be about running or maybe things about Kansas City or just about my life OR..." That is what my conversation in my head is like!! Very frustrating, I know! (Trust me!) So I have decided that my blog is going to be all of those things. I am going to write about anything and everything that I want to! So I promise that I am going to do a better job about updating. I'm going to go with the whole "21 days of something makes a habit" so here goes nothing.....

Running. I feel like it is consuming me lately. Not so much consuming me physically but mentally. It is ALL I seem to think about. I think I am doing too much thinking and not enough doing (JUST like with the blog thing)... training for this half marathon is super overwhelming and I am discouraged. I have been running for over a month and still hate it. Literally every step of the way, I hate it more and more! I have to give myself a pep talk just to get out there and run. It is super easy to get dressed to go run and I will even put my workout clothes on first thing in the morning, thinking that it will motivate me, but nope, it doesn't. Don't get my wrong, I feel FANTASTIC when I am done but the journey is miserable. I am hoping that will change soon and I will get the "runner's high" but so far, my ankles hurt, my legs ache and I don't like running.

A couple of blogs that I really enjoy reading about running are Shut up and Run! and Run Faster Mommy. They are both determined women and I am hoping that rubs off of me :)

11 Weeks until race day ..... San Francisco here I come!
