Today I'll Run

I'm a girl who likes to have a lot of things going on at once.

Why put the baby in daycare when I can bring her to work with me?
I'll just nurse the baby before the marathon and right after. 
Why take 15 credits when I can take 21?
He's 5 weeks old, it's time to go back to grad school.

True story. All of 'em.

I thrive when I'm busy--it's usually when I excel. So I've never quite gotten it when I've heard people say things like, "I need a few more hours in the day," and "I'm too busy to exercise."

But guess what. I need more hours in the day, and this week my training's been non-existant. I'm 18 weeks out from a marathon...this is when the training usually ramps up...and I'm too busy to run. Between Kennebec Valley Coaching taking a huge leap in business, renovating the new fitness studio, my kids and my day job, I'm wiped.

But I feel like running, because I love it.

So guys, when you come to the first boot camp class on Wednesday and the floor's not perfectly refinished, and the trim's still unpainted, I hope you understand. It's because I've been running.

The good news is, you can do squats no matter what color the walls are.
