Show Me the Mommy- Like a Doughnut on Fire (part 1)

***New Freeze Ahead Post for Mama Dip's Chicken and Rice. Seriously good southern cookin' at it's finest.**** Gasp that there's actually a new post up on the long forgotten 2nd blog.

Overhead in the last 10 years, "yeah..snicker..snicker.. the only time you will ever see me run is

1. Someone is chasing me

2. a Krispy Kreme Doughnut shop is on fire and SOMEONE needs to save the merchandise

I'm totally eating my words (and also 4 Krispy Kreme doughnuts consumed this week on Ben Date night)

You can only have a first race once, so why not run all the way with that inside joke as your motivation on a custom hat.

So freakin' proud of myself for sticking out making this Mondo Goal a reality tomorrow.

As I wrote about in my Team 317 post, I'm totally in awe that this accomplishment because I know what it took to get here. Not just over the last 4 months of running several times a week but really the last 10 years.

But enough with the After School Special, SO....

Go sticking to my guns, Go making a commitment and keeping it, GO ME!

How's that for some shameless self promotion?!?

Send me some good thoughts tomorrow morning around 8:30. I opted for one last short run yesterday. My knee felt good until the last 1/2 mile and I was within 5 mins from the time I am shooting to finish. A first race is a guaranteed PR. SWEET!

As I proclaimed at the start of the New Year that I put 2011 On Notice for Potential A$$ kicking all year long.

Team 317 totally kicked to the curb tomorrow while I smile (and hopefully don't become a big ol' hot sobbing mess) all the way to the finish line.

Go Go Go Go!!

Seriously, as a fellow "why would I run if there isn't a bear chasing me?" graduate, there's nothing like your first race. The finish time barely matters at all. The fact that YOU RAN is an awesome feeling all on its own. I can't tell you how much I'm looking forward to re-starting C25K and rocking my next-first race.

Rock it, Heather!! That hat is so fantastic! Have an awesome run! Good for you for sticking with it; Isn't that the best feeling?!? You deserve to indulge in self-promotion! I'll be probably starting in on my Saturday run a little after you've finished and will be thinking about you as I head out onto the pavement... Here's to your PR!!!
