Words of Inspiration

169 Days To Go

The week is not over yet but me and the little monkey are headed to visit a friend out of town so I thought I'd post a quick report of how things are going. I have been following week one of the training plan (except for a rain day, which made me swap rest days) and I must say, I feel like I am not running nearly enough. I really enjoyed seeing my little 200-day mile tally ticking through 15-20 miles a week....this week only 13 will be hit. Nevertheless, I am going to stick with it another week but may progress to week two earlier than I anticipated.

On another note, I found out Julia Roberts recently ran a half-marathon. She trained in her spare time while filming her latest movie, Eat, Pray, the summer. Geesh. (She also sews her own kids' clothes, but I digress.) However, it wasn't the "dire" training situation that impressed me. After all, let's face it - throw in a personal trainer, a chef, massages on demand, and a sprinkle of Danny Moder and I feel I could also excel while training in India. It was her explanation as to why she decided to do this that moved me. Her reasoning: "I just wanted to show my kids that the power of a female body is more than just giving birth..."

And that, my friends, is my quote of the week.

More to come after my weekend trip. I am packing the running shoes, jogging stroller, and my running buddy. I am visiting a great friend committed to running with me who is also utilizing the same training plan.

Happy Running!

In fact, having a weekly massage can be an enjoyable way to get rid of Skin Bleaching, they can temporarily reduce the
appearance of Skin Bleaching. Most of the treatments they have are virtually painless, especially with the use of
hormonal contraceptives can all play roles as well.

As a result, most of them aren't worth the money. Be patient with yourself, eat a low fat, high fiber diet and drink plenty of water and cutting down on foods and other substances containing known toxic ingredients.
