Sorry we didn't take any pictures of our 12 miler.
So, this post is entitled Motivation Monday. However, I am writing this today, Sunday. And the events that are discussed in this post occurred on Saturday. Totally confusing, but also irrelevant. I just wanted an alliterative title. Sorry, but accuracy must be sacrificed for the art of blogging.
Anyway, Mr. Marathon had typed up a whole big long post yesterday intended for Facebook, for the MHC Inspire page, which is the page for the local triathletes, runners, cyclists, etc. but I said, "WAIT. THAT WILL MAKE AN AWESOME BLOG POST." So he waited. And here it is:
"So I have been in a bit of a slump lately (since last week), it's been hard to get out and run since I have been sick. But the thing that started it was my marathon training plan, that I started last week! However today me and Elizabeth did a 12 miler! And I got to see a lot of people from our area that were out and about! That made me feel extra good, because of how hard they were working! It made me realize that I too can work hard, and that I may fall off my path but the important part is that as long as I get up and get going again I'll be ok. I wanted to thank all the people that decided to go out and exercise this morning, because you made a difference in my life and in my training!"

Speaking of training plans, we've also recently become involved in a Run for God program at a local church. Friends of ours are heading up the program, and we're helping in any way we can. This program is going to begin in a couple of weeks, and it's going to be awesome!
If you are interested in registering for this program, registration will be Tuesday night from 5-7 PM at the Martinsville YMCA and also the day of the first meeting (September 8 at 6 @ the Y), so come on out!!!!!
