When Life Hands You Lemons and 24 Hours To Go

When life hands you lemons…

Eat them!



Thanks for the life wisdom, Max.

Did you know I’m running a race tomorrow? I haven’t talked about it at all πŸ˜‰

I’m pretty excited and a lot less nervous than I thought I would be. After my meltdown the other night, I’m feeling ready to run out my stress. There’s nothing like a good run to clear out the clutter and put things into perspective. I NEED tomorrow’s run for my mental health!

My goal is to run a 1:44. 

I could possibly run 1:42 if it’s an amazing day.

A PR (better than 1:48) is my fallback goal. 

Overall though, I just want to enjoy myself. Shake off my stress, negative feelings and doubts and enjoy the sport that has given me so much these last 12+ years.  

And then come home to this guy:  


What are you up to this weekend? Anyone racing?

  1. What a cute boy!!

    Oh my goodness, EVERYONE is 13.1-ing this weekend! I’m running a half on Sunday. I’m using it to practice my goal marathon pace, so nothing very exciting. Best of luck to you – I look forward to your recap!

  2. Hahaha, kids and lemons are too much in combo!!
    Good luck in your race! Glad you will get your “you” time in and run all your stress away! Hope the weather’s in your favor and you can PR big too πŸ˜€

      1. Yeah, it’s supposed to rain here too :/ But hopefully it’s a nice cool light rain? That wouldn’t be so bad!

  3. Good luck this weekend! I’m not running but my daughter is running the 2km at the Bluenose Marathon tomorrow! I’m actually part of a panel discussion/presentation at the Marathon so that’s pretty cool!
