First of all, I have the TV on for background noise because sometimes I feel funny being alone in our quiet apartment. Anyways, A Knight’s Tale is on and it’s the part at the end where he gets to compete under his real name (instead of his made-up knight name), and I am close to tears! I am both sappy and a sucker for watching any kind of inspiring sport movie, which I guess includes jousting.
As my running flame rekindles, I have allowed myself to start looking for inspiration from the best of the running community. While injured, I generally try to remove myself from keeping up with the latest running news because it is only a reminder of what I can’t be doing.
So, forgive me if I’m super behind here, but while catching up on some Kara Goucher videos, I came across an interview on flotrack.com from right before the Olympic Marathon Trials in Houston where she said some things that really resonated with me. She talks about really taking a look at herself and seeing she needed to make some changes and re-dedicate herself to the sport. It’s very worth the watch.
Now, I did NOT just have a baby recently like Kara did, so I have even less of an excuse to have lost my a little with my running. But I am hoping for a similar experience as Kara, in that I can look in the mirror, see what needs changing, and then do something about it.
And as much as I love Disney, I’m pretty sure my running dreams will take more than wishing upon a star.
Now all I have to do is get this foot healed so I can really get to work.
Speaking of Disney, here’s some fun pics of Jess and our respective hotties at The Happiest Place on Earth.
