taking the bad with the good.

Want to know one of the worst parts about living in Provo? THESE shorts & shoes:

I do not understand why guys feel the need to wear cargo shorts, running shoes, and BYU shirts EVERY day of their lives. No you do not need to wear running shoes everywhere. No you do not have to wear cargo shorts every day. My friend told me that Provo is in the top ten of the worst dressed cities. I believe it!

So I FINALLY went running again. I went the first week I was up here and did half a mile and about died. Yesterday I did two and while that is still wimpy to me, I guess it is a start! I want to train for a half marathon again and hopefully this time I don't get really sick so I can actually follow through with the race :) The weather is SO much nicer to run in than back in Arizona so I am grateful for that.

"Racing teaches us to challenge ourselves. It teaches us to push beyond where we thought we could go. It helps us to find out what we are made of. This is what we do. This is what it's all about."
- PattiSue Plummer, U.S. Olympian

+Want to know what's awesome about my job at 24? The last time I went it we had a dance off, watched Emperor's New Groove, played capture the flag & Uno. How do you beat that?! You can't. The free membership is nice too :)

& I'm really loving this song right now. Great for running to. Anyone else have any good tunes they like to run to? Let me know!

Good for you for having a goal and going after it!!
Also, I LOVE that song!
I love running to anything upbeat.. even if I don't particularly like the song, sometimes I like it just for when I'm running. Nicki Minaj, for example. ha ha
