Journey to Positivity

I've been reading through my recent posts, and I apologize.
I know they haven't been the most positive blogger.
You expected "honest" though, right?

I know for sure that I have the most supportive readers and followers out there in "Blog Land."
You read me vent and vent and vent.
You read on and on about my whining about my summers.

Guess what.
I'm done.
I'm so done complaining about my situation with the stepkids.

Last night I had the best sleep ever within the last four nights.
The twins slept through the night.
I was sooo glad.
I woke up renewed and rested.
I was ready to attack my short run- 3 miles.
I went to the clubhouse, and that's what I did.
I even ran the last mile in 10 minutes.
Some of you are probably thinking, "That's not very fast."
That's okay. It was fast for this formerly "non-runner" as of last February!
Sometimes I feel a little guilty that I'm running such a short distance, but I have to remember that it's all part of the training schedule.
Now I run 4 miles twice a week, 3 miles once, and a long run (this Friday is 7 miles).
I'm super excited to run today and even the 7 miles on Friday.
I have to remind myself to be positive, and things will work out fine.
Thanks, Miss Haneefa!
You have such a great attitude about everything.
