Notes to Self
  • End of a hard ten days, stress of illness/prepping Dimes Warm-Up for 1200 people
  • Goal to Self: Get out of my head, set new goal to motivate me
  • New Running Game: If one of my play list songs comes on the radio, I keep running
    • When Kesha's Blow came on and I was 15 ft from the house, and added a 1/2 mile!
  • Thought:  "If there is a God, I'm a piece in his game. Everyday my job is to figure out how to best play and the game and stay in it." - Who said it?

Songs on the Radio
Katy Perry, E.T. (feat. Kanye West) (intervals)
Celine Dion, My Heart Will Go On (felt my Grandma running with me today)
