Getting back in the swing of things

This is the view from my run this morning. I had the (brilliant) epiphany Friday after work that I have another half marathon race coming up and I have been slacking in the running department for sure (oops!) So I figured I better get my butt out the door this weekend and pound some pavement. Luckily, the weather was super nice!

Over the two days I accumulated about 10 miles or so. For me, training isn't always about how fast or far I go.. it's about clearing my head so timing the miles was irrelevant for me.

This weekend was a good reminder for myself about how much I enjoy running and a big kick myself in the rear moment for I-better-stay-consistent-or-I-will-not-be-a-happy-camper.

 Getting out of a shape is easy. Getting back into shape is hard. Dear self: stay in shape.

Some food for thought
I saw this quote online today and thought it was so true. 
You get out of life what you put into it.

‎''You will notice that those who speak most of prosperity, have it. Those who speak most of health, have it. Those who speak most of sickness, have it. Those who speak most of poverty, have it. It is Law. It can be no other way…The way you feel is your point of attraction, and so, the Law of Attraction is most understood when you see yourself as a magnet getting more and more of the way you feel. When you feel lonely, you attract more loneliness. When you feel poor, you attract more poverty. When you feel sick, you attract more sickness. When you feel unhappy, you attract more unhappiness. When you feel healthy and vital and alive and prosperous—you attract more of all of those things'' 

I'm going to work on being a positive force in as many areas of my life as I can be.
