I Did It! I Didn't Give Up!

     What I have been working on and blogging about for two months. Before stuffing myself like a turkey. I participated in the Turkey Trot to benefit LARS, Laurel Advocacy and Referral. A great organization that helps the homeless and people that are having trouble making basic ends meet.  

      Whenever I sign up for these events. I am happy until they day of the event. Then when having to wake up early in them morning. The same thoughts run through my head. Why did I do this? I don't want to go. I wonder if I can get out of it?

My number and my lovely chapeau
         Then upon arriving at the event. I want to go home. Can I go home? How can I get out of this? Sadly in the past. If I didn't want to go through something like this. I wouldn't. I just wouldn't show up. Desperately want to quit that type of destructive behavior. It is destructive. People learn that they cannot rely on you. Being considered unreliable. Is possibly the worst thing ever. 
Standing around waiting for things to begin. It was a very cold morning.
     When I started practicing for the Iron Girl 5k. I was finishing at one hour four minutes. By the time the Iron Girl came around. I was finishing at 54 minutes. This time when I did the Turkey Trot. My official finishing (according to Blue Cheetah Sports Timing) time is 47 minutes. I thought I had finished in 49 minutes. Finishing in 30 minutes, will be in my future.

My first 5k

     My new goal for the end of November, December and into the New Year. Is to not gain any extra weight during this delicious Christmas season.

Greetings from the Queen

     The Queen of Procrastination, that is. Bet that you didn't know that Procrastination was its own country? There is, it is north of the country of Dilly Dallying and south of Loafing. The capitol of Procrastination is Trifling. We are proud of our beautiful Frittering River. There are many loyal subjects in this country.

       I plan to move to Hastening, but not live in Rushing or Hurrying. One way to do this is to stay off of social media. Until I get the jobs I want to complete done. To get up earlier and not fritter around doing nothing useful. I no longer want to waste my time with frivoling.

        I waste a lot of time thinking of exercise. When I could be exercising. And if I had gone out and done what I needed to do. When I had first thought about it. I would be home.

        I would say wish my luck, I need a lot more that luck.

How'd This Happen?

         Sitting here and realizing, it's November 2!  How on Earth did that happen?  Less than a month until the 5k. As far as preparation goes. I'm not quite as prepared as I would like to be. So what to do, what to do? Start preparing for this thing like a crazy woman.

          In the past, I would use my lack of preparation. As an excuse to give up and quit. Well not this time! Just as it was stated above. Must start preparing like a crazy woman. Perhaps this will teach me to stop putting things off. And become a little more organized. I am working so hard on becoming organized.

     On the lighter side. Since I didn't receive a finishers medal. The finishers medals only went to those that finished the half marathon. And I didn't place. Well twentieth from last is a place. Isn't it? I gave myself a medal. And commemorated reaching an exercise goal in August.
