Overcoming the ballet body image.

Pizza, Wine, Chocolate, and Motivation

Salad that I devoured too soon for a picture and Costco pizza. While watching Monday’s episode of Bunheads.


Port wine and chocolate chips.


Lately I’ve been struggling with running motivation. It’s largely due to my legs being in an almost constant state of fatigue. Two weeks ago I found that I was more motivated to run long when I had a new route planned. So, that’s what I’m doing tomorrow.

I decided to drive down to Newport Beach (it’s only about 15 minutes away, maybe less since I’m goi early) and run on the boardwalk/street. I’ll have to cover it a couple times to do the full 19 miles, but I’m hoping that the extreme change of scenery will make it at least a little easier.

Part of my renewed motivation came from reading this post. It’s so true – if you want something, then you gotta do what you gotta do.

Besides, no one is making me run this marathon. I chose to do it. Therefore I’m choosing to devote the time to train for it.

So there you go. 19 miles tomorrow at the beach.
