So it’s Monday. I’m back to work and I’m also back to half marathon training after taking a bit of a recovery week off from my death race aka the Minnesota Half Marathon. The Queen City Half Marathon in Regina, SK is only 4 weeks away and it is my last chance to hit my Operation Sub 1:50 goal in the hopes that it will keep me on my Corral A streak in RunDisney events…and specifically in the Glass Slipper Challenge.
I also have to figure out a budget…big time. I was lucky enough to get into the Pixie Dust Challenge for May 2015 and I plan on attending with a friend, who will hopefully be getting her Pixie Dust, too…cross your fingers she gets in tomorrow! 🙂 But, I also have a commitment that I have to satisfy–taking my grandma and my cousins on a trip. I made the promise while my grandfather was in palliative care and well, since my grandma will be 80 this October, we need to get the show on the road. We are planning to take her to Disney in November of 2015 and the four of us will walk the Wine & Dine together. I already can’t wait to see the finisher photo of all four of us crossing that finish line together! That is worth the price of admission alone.
We aren’t telling my grandma yet. In fact, we are keeping it quiet until I can get everyone registered for the event as it makes me queasy thinking of registering everyone and not getting into the race. Yikes! So that means three trips to Disney in a year! Three Disney races, two of which are challenges…WTF am I thinking!? lol. Oh and I was planning on buying some sort of home/condo/townhouse in 2015, too. *gulp*
Clearly I am not going to be doing anything expensive over the next fourteen months. I am so close to unsubscribing to any and all shopping emails I currently receive in order to reduce temptation.
What sorts of things do you do when you have to knuckle down to get things done? Be it work, fitness or budget wise? Any tips you can share? Let me know in the comments!
