It is a beautiful morning here in Tennessee. Today is going to be 50 and sunny. Tomorrow will be 60 and sunny, perfect weather for my half marathon!
For some reason every time I go away, I get a new tattoo. That's what I did yesterday.
This makes 3, and it is the final one. It was also the least painful- yay! (The other 2 are on my ankle and inner arm)
Definition: Perseverance is not giving up. It is persistence and tenacity, the effort required to do something and keep doing it till the end, even if it's hard.
That is my word!! That applies to my personal life, and even to my running.
Black 13 tattoo parlor, in downtown Nashville. They are supposedly the best in the state! So I gave the guy the picture of what I wanted, he took it to the back and copied it onto paper for me. (Or whatever they use) He brought the paper back out to me, to see if it looked right, and he had spelled it wrong!!
I've seen the website with tattoo's gone wrong, and my nightmare has always been that I would get a tattoo that is messed up somehow. Gahhh, that almost became a reality!
But thankfully, everything turned out great. They are awesome guys there, I would definitely recommend them.
2. I'm still addicted to my gym. I've gone every single day for a couple hours. I am also very, very sore. But, it's a good thing! Today I'm just going for a spin class, so I'll take a break from the weights.
My diet has been excellent. I know it's been less than a week, but I can already tell a difference in how my clothes fit. I am SO happy. I feel like I've finally had a breakthrough.
I did reward myself with some fat free sorbet. Believe me, I wanted the froyo, loaded with the yummy stuff, but I was good.
I know you want to see another pic of my new nephew, right?
Oh my stars, I can't wait to see this precious thing and kiss his cheeks off! I have a quick trip planned to KY on Monday so I can do just that.
After spin class, I'm off to do some exploring and sight seeing!
Do you have a tattoo?
Are you running or racing this weekend?
