It's a bird, it's a plane, it's the flying pig?
So if you read my last post I just lost one of my uncles this past week. He had cancer and suffered from a massive heart attack at 53. This past week was just weird. My eating was decent and within calories. My workouts were lacking. I posted my goal to be 3 to 4 times this week at the gym. Tonight will be my third time. While in the city with my family I realized something was missing. I just wasn't feeling the same about this journey of making a new me. I need a change. I haven't felt the purpose in getting my workouts this week. I don't know what happened from last week. So while talking to some family and best friends this weekend I realize I needed a change and something to give me to look forward to in my workouts. I've decided to register for the Flying Pig Half Marathon In Cincinnati, Ohio in May. I've got 15 weeks to get in the training and work needed. I know I won't be able to run the whole thing or even hald and that is important to me. What is important is that I work hard and finish it for myself . Whether I walk or roll across that finish line I will finish! I don't have anything to prove to anyone else but myself. So if you pray, please say one for me and my legs lol, because we will need it in the next 15 weeks! Training starts tonight. I am so happy that I will have family joining me and hopefully lots of support waiting for me at the finish line!
