Had to share this quote. It made me laugh. No physical training today….yesterday we walked from the Marina to Santa Monica pier so today I trained my mind. I thought marathon training and racing would be my greatest mental challenge but it appears that maintaining laughter and a positive outlook right now is more difficult.

I jogged a mile this morning at 13:20 – yikes and it hurt…long road ahead but it felt oh so good. If this is what I get for 30 days I’ll take it with a smile and so begins my training for something wonderful this year.

Here’s to Jan 2012 and my goal to lose 10 lbs and improve my time to 10 min miles. Perhaps without hair I will run a faster time – regardless my 2012 journey has begun.
