Why is it...

That for months I've wanted to fit exercise into my schedule and literally couldn't find time. It was exercise or get 5 hours of sleep. For some odd reason, sleep won.

Now that the Indy mini-marathon is less than four months away, things have changed. (The fact that I start writing my next book this week may alter things a tad....)

But I've been running and exercising like crazy.

Practically every day.

It's been awesome! And has me shaking my head.

It's amazing how the drop dead date to run 13.1 miles has made all the difference. Maybe I'll have to do a second mini this year. Just to stay motivated. Or scared.

You take your pick!

Perfect example of how deadlines and goals keep us moving forward. =)

Oh yeah. 13.1 miles would motivate me as well. I did my first half marathon last year. Vowed never to do it again. I can get just as motivated for a 10k and keep my knees intact **SMILE**

Congrats on the running, though. That's awesome. Keep it up!!

Running always helps me with my writing. I hash out so many plot or character issues while running and biking!

Have a great day!

It'd truly be a drop dead date for me if I ran 13.1 miles!

Just having an appointment to the doctor motivates me. I need to make one...

I awarded you the Premio-Dardas Award on my blog!
