Instant Motivation

Yup. Thats right folks. I just signed up for a 10K.

So Lucinda and Dee pretty much swear by doing races consistently as some much needed motivation for keeping at the drudgery that sometimes is exercising. And they invited me to sign up for this 10K with them. But I'm kinda a suck face runner lately, so I've been really hesitant.

But - I got a proposition this week from Royall. 
I realized that I mention Royall on a fairly regular basis, but dont often post pictures of Royall (since our hang outs never seem to be documented). So meet Royall. Well, Royall is a fitness enthusiast if ever there was one. We used to make work out goals together all the time back in first year. She even mentioned a couple months ago, us doing the Magrath Tri (her and Matt have already done it once, and I was supposed to do it that year but chickened out). So in order to combat that sometimes I'm a total work out flake, Royall proposed that we train for the Magrath Tri 2011. A year away to give us plenty of time. We'd both be setting small, manageable goals and checking in every month, to help keep each other motivated and see how we're doing. 

So I suppose I'm killing two birds with one stone: My dental friends are happy I'm joining in on the race and I'm keeping motivated with Royall for our goals.

I'm really nervous. But this will be good.

Woot! Woot! A 10K is awesome. I was actually going to ask you if you would be in Alberta in March to do the Moonlight Run. By then you would be a 10K veteran.
