Clear headed decision

Ellie Goulding’s “Lights” has been on repeat all day.

Partially because I’ve been playing the Ellie Goulding last.fm station at work. I go through phases.

So I’ve read the marathon recaps, I’ve signed up with Teams for Kids and I’ve started to tell my friends and family – I’m committed.  Deciding to run the 2012 NYC Marathon has been one of my most goal oriented, clear-headed and focus decisions ever. Heck it might even be the decision.

I know it’s not going to be easy. In the past 48 hours since confirming my decision my blood sugars have been a mess – almost to spite me. But some how the idea of the marathon makes me want to gain control more than anything in the past. I once had an eye doctor tell me I couldn’t get Lasik until my blood sugars were under control – something I hadn’t been trying to do my entire life or anything. Ok Doc, sure it’s so I can get rid of my contacts that I’ll all of a sudden figure this out, nothing to do with my future health, lifespan or any other threat.

But this challenge (which will be as much as the training and figuring out how this is going to happen as well as the race) will be my chance to tell my blood sugars (yeah I speak to “them” – calling me crazy?) ha! I win! Because it wont be easy and it wont always be fun but I don’t think for a second that it’s not doable.  Time to get my research on to find some success stories.

don't be afraid to fail
