Monday Motivation: Going Without

We had a family wedding this weekend. Tom's Niece, Erica is now married to her beloved Jeff. Here I am with Chickee.

A rare photo of Tom and me. 

Then, as promised... Monday Motivation. Yesterday was cold. It was blustery. I was tired. It was a long (but fun) weekend. I couldn't think of a good reason to run. I already wore the dress, so I didn't have that hanging over my head. I had a race last weekend, the last one for a while... so that wasn't motivating me. My running partner, was out of town, so I didn't even have peer pressure to motivate me.  I got to the park, and as you can see, I was stalling taking selfies instead of getting out the door. The only thing I could think of was that I hadn't run all week and I'd feel really sluggish if I didn't get out there soon. I knew I'd probably feel happier once I got it done.  I'm 15 miles BEHIND my goal for the month. It would be so easy to just say, 'I blew it, I give up'. So... I would just have to run without motivation. Just go without. I had shoes and warm clothes, who needs motivation? Not me.

And a random cat photo.
