Work in progress

I am not the person I want to be, but that’s ok.  I may never be that person I want to be because once I get to where I’m going, I always see something else.

Our weight loss journey
I wanted to lose weight and when I did lose the weight I wanted to run a half marathon.

I conquered the bridge and completed the half marathon in a personal best. So PROUD of myself right now.
After I ran a half marathon, I wanted to run a better half marathon.

Refueling at RnR Denver finish!
After I ran I better half marathon, I wanted to run lots of half marathons and travel the country.

I was supposed to run my first #marathon today but last night at 6:30 pm St. Jude canceled the marathon. This morning my husband and I got up to run for the kids! I ran my first 26.2 so does this make me a marathoner? #runchat #running #run

After I traveled the country to run half marathons, I decided I wanted to run a marathon.  After I ran my first “unofficial” marathon, I never wanted to run a marathon again.  BUT I was already signed up for another marathon a month later so I ran it anyway.

After I ran my first official marathon, I decided to run lots of other marathons.  Marathons then turned into ultramarathons and I’m eyeing an half ironman now.

I tell you this to let you know that it’s OK to be a work in progress as long as you’re working! I will always be chasing after something because that is just the person I am.  I am a goal oriented person.  It keeps me moving, it keeps me alive! It’s my reason for being a work in progress.

This weekend is coming up on another one of those work in progress moments for me.  I’ll be running a 50K (31 miles) in the Texas heat at midnight on Sunday!  When I signed up for this I was super excited for it.  My enthusiasm has weened a little bit about this race but I think that’s because I have removed myself from racing for a little bit.  I need to feel my racing spirit.  I have a couple other races this summer but I definitely needed to summer to regroup and relax. But I’ve been working towards this…so it’s a work in progress.

Are you a work in progress? What are you working towards?

    You are awesome! I think you should come to Virginia and run Shamrock ;) I’m eyeballing a half ironman as well, but I need to get through a few sprints and olympics first! Good luck this weekend!

        I definitely want to do the shamrock half but of course I have to plan for that. It looks like a very fun race.
