Celebrate This Week! 5.03.14
It's always good to end the week on a positive note. Sometimes we concentrate on the negatives. We have a choice. Choose positive. Choose to celebrate. I will be joining Ruth Ayres and her weekly link-up, Celebrate This Week. Check out all the other celebrations HERE
This week my posts are going to be dedicated to last weekend... my trip to D.C.!
I am celebrating my health this week. Last weekend I traveled to Washington D.C. for the Nike Women's 1/2 Marathon. I had a lot of fun staying and visiting with family and traveling into our nation's capital. From Georgetown to The National Zoo to seeing the cherry blossoms bloom, it was a great trip. The weather cooperated as we had sunny skies and temps in the mid 60s.
The highlight of the trip was my 1/2 marathon. I figured out while waiting in my corral that this was my 11th 1/2. This one was going to be really special. At the end of my race would be a Tiffany's necklace! Now, I'm not a huge jewelry person. I have some jewelry, and other than my engagement and wedding ring, I don't have anything that is worth a lot of money. So this would be my first "little blue box". It was definitely the "carrot dangling in front of me" as I ran!
The race was fantastic. Beautiful sunshine and important monuments. The Memorial Bridge and the steps of the capital. The man in a tux handing me my little blue box.
Best medal ever:
I've been wearing my "medal" daily. It reminds me that I did it. It reminds me that I can continue to be active and try new goals. It reminds me I need to keep trying. It reminds me that when I set goals, I can do it.
