Getting Back in Gear

It's the first full week of the new year and I'm feeling a bit lackluster. Still working on establishing goals for the year (some new, some carried over from 2013) and figuring out what's really attainable this year. I've been leaving the house at 6:45 am to get to work around 8, leaving work at 3:30 to be home around 5 and finding myself exhausted and not even slightly motivated to get off the couch at that point.

However, I've got two halfs these next two weekends to get me moving - nothing like killing myself over 13.1 miles to get my ass moving again, right?

I get to earn this beauty at the inaugural Citrus Heritage Half Marathon this weekend! This should be just gorgeous - it's down in Riverside through some historic parts of the city and in orange groves. Yes please! To boot, the orange on the medal is glittery. Even better, but I get to hang out with these fine women again and my friend Suzanne is coming up from San Diego for a little ass-kicking too. I call this a win.

The following weekend, I'm Phoenix-bound for an encore #ladiesrunvegas weekend to finish out the Desert Double Down series and earn this guy:

I'm pretty excited about both and hope they provide me that extra oomph to get moving again!

What's coming up on your race list? How have you kicked off the new year - or have you?
