I have lots to share about our Open House and custom projects that are complete.
However, I must share a unique experience first.
That's right people!
All for the love of chocolate!
But let me back up...many weeks ago, I saw the hot chocolate 15k/5k advertised.
I don't run, but I like chocolate so I said I'll do it.
I twisted my friends arms and we committed. And signed up. And paid. Yes people I paid to run.
It makes no sense, but I must have been in a funk when I committed.
So I started training. I went with Hubby and my oldest. We walked a few miles. About 30 seconds in, I was bored. Hubby was encouraging but it didn't work. It sucked.
I followed up later that week and took the dogs. That was more enjoyable, but it still kinda sucked.
My next training resulted in me picking berries for a fall display in the shoppe.
My ability to focus is a major issue.
Fast forward to Saturday when I realized I had to wake up in the 5:00 am time frame on a Sunday.
Who hates me? Why is this happening?
Next came the details I decided to figure out Saturday night:
What do I wear? I don't own a sports bra.
My Lululemon leggings are too nice to actually exercise in.
Does my number go on the front or back?
We made it down to the race. Somehow I pulled my booty out of bed.
And we finished!
We received some delicious chocolate that helped me forget the alarm earlier that morning.
In summary: I am not a runner. I am not a morning gal.
I am a lover of chocolate, friends and a beautiful morning.
We had lots of laughs, good conversation and we even talked about our next one.
I will be looking for a race that begins later in the day and offers killer swag.
But at least I'm open to another!
Enjoy your Monday!
