Every year the holiday season – starting with Halloween and ending with New Year’s Eve – gets a number of us off track. For me, because my bday is in February, I often find myself trying to tone and tighten around this time of year instead.
But this year, I’m really doing it. No more failed resolutions. This time I have a specific, measurable goal with a deadline. I’ve decided to go from #bedtohalfmarathon in 14 weeks. That’s right, bed. Not a couch potato but a bed slug. Can you relate? I’m one of those who loves. my. comfy. bed. I come home from work, put on a t-shirt, get my laptop and jump in the bed. Damned shame. LOL!
But things have changed.
A few weeks ago I hooked up with my local Black Girls Run group (after lurking on the page for about 3 years). I remember when the organization started like 8 years or so ago as a blog. I actually tried to run, about twice a year each year, and just never made it into a habit, until now.
Sometimes you’ve gotta put your money where your heart is. Without giving it too much thought, I signed up for the Run Like a Diva half marathon in beautiful SoCal wine country, Temecula. Since it happens to fall around the time of my birthday (February) I thought it would be perfect. A far cry from last year’s Vegas birthday weekend, where all I did was eat, drink, shop and be merry. I think the time is right for me to finally get this cute little marshmallow body firmed up.
Will you join me? If so you should find your local Black Girls Run group and sign up so we can, as they say in BGR “preserve the sexy”. Then subscribe to my youtube channel where I’ll track my 14 week training, going literally from bed to half marathon. If you’re a new runner, or about to become one, we can do this together. Let me know in the comments what you’d like me to share in my video series #bedtohalfmarathon.
By the way, since the physical part is only half the battle, for the other half I’m opening the Detox for a Diva 14 day program in January. Take advantage of the special Black Friday rate and join NOW! Let’s get busy getting really well, divas!
