Three Things Thursday

1. My first week of training for the Princess half has been going well. I managed to do both runs without stopping!! HOLLER! I am excited for my long run on Saturday and seeing if I can push myself to do the whole run without walking. It's funny because I used to think "oh man, this is SO far to run" and now all I think is "This is nowhere near as long as what I ran for my half marathon...piece of cake!" Love the change in attitude!

2. Speaking of changes, one of the reasons I haven't had time to update this week is because I was helping my sister move out and then cleaning her old room so I can take it. (Her room was bigger so it's a total upgrade for me!) I woke up this morning to a text telling me my programs were cancelled so I figured might as well take advantage of my day off and start moving stuff, right? Well, once I get into a groove, it's hard for me to stop, so I ended up moving almost everything into my new room (with the exception of my two dressers that are currently in storage). Can't wait to get it all set and put away!! Hopefully by the end of the weekend!

3. And now, an awesome quote that I LOVE:

"If you run, you are a runner. It doesn't matter how fast or how far. It doesn't matter if today is your first day or if you've been running for twenty years. There is no test to pass, no license to earn, no membership card to get. You just run."

Princess time!! Exciting!! When the run gets tiresome just picturing running through the Castle... it helped me out A LOT!

Congrats on having a good first week. I LOVE new training plans -they are filled with such excitement and newness :)

yay for a larger room. Hope you can still find your way to the bathroom in the middle of the night :) (that would be my problem - a stubbed toe on the new path - ha!)

Have a great weekend! TGIF!

Starting a new plan is fun, especially after running a long race. It feels so fresh and doable!

I love that quote. One of my friends wanted to know where the difference between jogging and running was. I was appalled by a few of the answers. One of them I found very insulting because it implied (based on pace given) that I was not a runner. WHAT???

If you are trying your best, you are a runner.
