In 6 weeks I will be 47 years old. I will also be running a 5K. It is how I want to spend my birthday. I find this really strange. But wonderfully strange. How is it even possible that I could be excited about running 3.125 miles while someone times me. It’s mostly because I now know how a good run makes me feel.
Over the past year I’ve trained myself to be able to easily run 3 miles in just over 30 minutes. It’s something I would not of thought possible. There’s power in the fact that I did this.
I was thinking today that I want to remind myself of this power. It’s power that I produced and I want to transition that type of power to my next goal which is to get my weight down, over the hump! Into the 180′s.
So today I sit here contemplating this challenge. I tackled this running challenge more than a year ago.
I want to channel that power to accomplish this weight goal challenge.
I have 6 weeks. I’ll be training for the race. And I want to get the scale into the 180′s.
That is my challenge.
My plan is to keep my training simple and my food simple.
But both will be measured and routine.

One thing I’ve learned in my years of maintenance is it’s all about the process. A consistent process is what makes things change.
If you stick with it, it will work.
You must never give up. Ever.
Please consider leaving me a comment. What makes you stick with a goal? Is it limitation? Is it the prize at the end? How do you stay with it to the end? How do you keep motivated? I’d like to know.
