Today I did something that made it to the top 3 hardest things I have done. You know when it is so hard that you have to have a constant pep talk stream in your head? It goes something like this... " You got this Katy" "You can do it", "Don't stop now, you have done so much", "I think I am going to die", "This is ridiculous", " Why am I doing this?", "Stop. It. You. Can. Do. It". Before today I distinctly remember having this thought stream two other times.... while studying and taking the bar exam and giving birth to my first son Jacob.
This afternoon I ran for 70 minutes on the treadmill or six miles. This is not a huge deal for many many people. For me it is a huge deal. I am not what people refer to as athletic. I am the smart girl. The dramatic girl. Not the athletic one. My brother is super athletic. He won a Marathon last spring. It was his second one EVER!! (Who the heck wins a marathon???) Anyway, he is a personal trainer and an avid runner. My husband and I are in a fitness craze and want to run a half marathon so my brother made us a training plan. Today was a long run.... a super long run. I made it and it made me proud of myself. I really want to finish the half-marathon with my husband and then maybe I can be the athletic girl.
Who am I kidding, I mostly just want to be the hot lawyer mom and running burns a grip of calories.
