Woot, I was not last

My goal when I go out and run is to cross the finish line, sure I have a time in my head but I am not there yet to really push that. I always say that I don't want to be the last person in my age group across the finish line. Well this past weekend I wouldn't know anyways because I forgot my timing chip but my finish line photo at least shows a few people behind me. Whooo hoo I am not last.

Can you see them, the people coming in behind me? Sometimes it is the little things that keep me going. :)

This morning I did not want to get up, then when I finally talked myself into getting out of bed my back was killing me. Yea, I didn't get up which means I didn't work out. Oh well I have tonight to get my 5 miles that is on the schedule done.

Soooooo........I told myself I wasn't allowed to by any new running stuff until I dropped a few of these pounds that have been bugging me.  Of course now I want new stuff.  New capri's, a new skirt and heck toss in some new shoes while I am at it. This is going to be a tough few months while I knock off these pounds.

Do you use "things" as motivation to do stuff? Clothing as rewards for losing weight or meeting running/fitness goals?


  1. A girl in front of me at last weekend's race had a 'Dont Be Last' shirt on. She sure wasn't...she was far ahead of me. :S
    Did you see RunningSkirts new fall stuff?

  2. Yes! I want the heartstooth subzerio skirt for my half in November! Eeek...must get these lbs off so I can order it.

  3. I do!!! Right now I am in the great panty project! haha! Every week that I do at least 5 hours of exercise, I get a new pair of panties LOL I actually bought 6 pairs on sale, but I am earning them 1 pair at a time :) haha
