As I mentioned before in this post... I am not a runner. & on a side note the Color Mania 5K I had intended on running in was cancelled. Sad face :(  I was really looking forward to it! It was my first 5K.

Anyways I was reading some of the posts on my Bloglovin the other day. Like I do everyday. And I came across this post. I am a new follower of Mile Posts. I loved her post "First Day Of The Rest Of My Life" because she talked about how shes always said shes not a morning person but when she started running in the mornings she came to the realization "Hey maybe I am a morning person?". I felt like she was talking about me. I have always despised early mornings. But I have always wanted to be one of those awesome people who get up early and go to the gym or run. Her post really motivated me. I told my husband about it & we decided we are going to start running together in the mornings, starting off just 2 days a week. I am pretty excited about it. (my inner non morning girl voice is screaming right now) Ive really been wanting to get better at running. Its easy. (ya know  There is no thought process to it. Just run. I am excited my hubs & I are doing something together too. I love it. So say a little prayer for us! I really hope we do this & stay with it.

There is so much fitness motivation going on right now in blogland!

Like the Curing #NOtivaton link up with Life: Oceanside , Mal Smiles & The Pink Growl.
These are some of my favorite posts of theirs on Curing #NOtivation. here here and here.

  3. I am also new to the AM workout world and the running world so throwing those two together was intimidating at first but I am addicted! I feel like it gives me so much energy throughout the days and I can really tell the difference on my rest days now. I hope y'all enjoy it as much as we do, it really is life changing! Good luck!

    1. Thats awesome! Everyone keeps telling me it gives you more energy. I hope it does for me because I always feel like I'm draggin during the day! Thanks! :)
