The Weekend is Almost Here!

Sooooooo glad this is a short work week, I'm ready for the weekend! Thank you to everyone for your input on my "marathon strategy", it was really helpful to hear all of your suggestions and experiences!
With all the excitement of THE Marathon, I feel like I've almost forgotten about the 1/2 Marathon that I'm doing THIS weekend! I'm really excited for it! I haven't done any races since 4th of July and I totally love the excitement of Race Day! A lot of my teammates are doing this race too, so it should be really fun.
I'm looking forward to trying out my strategy in a "real" race setting, hopefully it will go well!
I had physical therapy again today for my hips, they always feel so much better after I get stretched out really good. Oh, I also went to my FIRST Yoga Class last night! It was really good, I'll definitley be heading back for more. My plan will be to do that 1-2 times per week, it really felt good to relax and truly focus on stretching and feeling where my body was.
Keep the comments/suggestions coming on my "marathon strategy"!!!
I added a new gadget thingy (saw it on Marcy's blog and loved it)! See's over there to the right..."Who's In?" So, add yourself and then that will be the link to your blog!
*Can anyone help me with adding a You Tube video to my blog post? I've been trying to figure it out all day....driving me crazy!!!

I too am looking forward to the weekend!

In regards to adding a youtube video to a post.... I do this regularly so I can help. To the right of the video, there is a box that gives you info on the video (Creator, date, etc). There will be an EMBED box. If it is open there will be text that you can copy and paste into a post. Some videos have the embedding disabled and you can't. IF that happens, I usually just link to the website in my post if I want to refer to it.

I hope this helps. Let me know if you need more help!

Words of Wisdom

"Promise yourself to be so strong that nothing will disturb your peace of mind.
See the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true.
Think only of the best, work only for the best and expect only the best.
Forget about the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future.
Spend so much time on the improvement of yourself that there is no time to criticize others.
Live in the faith that the whole world is on your side so long as you are true to the best that is in you."

"Trust yourself. You know more than you think you do."
- Dr. Spock

"Fall in love or fall in hate. Get inspired or be depressed. Ace the test or flunk the class. Make babies or make art. Speak the truth or lie and cheat. Dance on tables or sit in the corner. Life is divine chaos. Embrace it. Forgive yourslef. Breathe. And enjoy the ride. "
