work out, keep moving, run and blogging

Yesterday was the final day of my Christmas vacation.  It was an interesting vacation, days spent with family in Toronto, visiting friends far and near, along with catching my annual winter cold.

Now that I'm back to work and back to running, I've been visiting some of my favourite blogs (yes, you are all my favourites), but one struck me in particular.  JoLynn at Single Track Junkie, hit the very cord of inspiration I was looking for.  


Move every day!!!


Wow, that hit me like a ton of bricks...I had slipped into a very comfortable, non-motivated state that I call Slothdom.  Now all that is gone.  I've had two very comfortable 2.5 and 4K runs, which will prepare me for the first race of 2011.  The Richmond Road Race.  This is one of my very favourite races to kick off the new year!

2011 may not be a year of many races, there are a few family issues ensuing, which of course will take priority, but at least I'll make a point of moving every day!!

Life's fun if you don't weaken,

Lily

That is a great goal for 2011. I may steal it myself. :)

Love the new blog look too!

there's a reason why our bodies turn lethargic, and then there's a reason to kick them in the arse again! MOVE EVERY DAY!

Yay! Welcome back to movin' lady. We've all hit some slothdom at the end of the year. Happens to the best of us.

Anne said...

Sounds like a plan! :) Great start to 2011.

Nice refresh on the blog and the attitude! (Though a little slothdome is something everyone deserves.)

I heart JoLynn. She is such an inspiration.

Happy New Year Lily!

Happy New Year to you too!!!
A race is always a good way to start another year.

Move Every Day! A great idea. I LIKE it and could probably live with that too. My too tight trousers are telling me it's a must!
btw... love the pinky reddy hues....
