Confession #1 - I am into my 3rd year of marriage and last night, I used my mop for the very first time. (I know, mom, that's not how you raised me)
|I couldn't stand behind the stove to open it, I had to stand next to it|
Especially when you ask me the question, "but haven't you been living at your new house for over a month and this is the first time you're mopping?" So please, don't ask me that question, OK?
Donny kept saying "wow it smells so clean" - I think that was his way of saying,
wow, you should do this more often." But I told him, sorry babe, I only mop once every 2.5 years...
Now that I'm done with confession #1, it's time for:
Confession #2 - I'm getting really tired of the Color Run. I know everyone "loves" the Color Run and thinks it's like the greatest idea for a race ever. But I'm just plain sick of hearing about it.
But here's why. Everyone's always posting it on Pinterest and Facebook and saying things like "I'm soo doing this one day." Or "we should totally do the Color Run." Or putting it on their Pinterest "bucket list." But of the dozens of people who have talked about it to me, either directly or indirectly, - I only know of 2 people who have ACTUALLY done it. (Go Lacey and Carissa!)
Come on ladies - don't just talk about it - DO IT! Step 1 is Run! (My husband thinks he coined that phrase and I can't find anyone else specifically who said it so I can't really argue with him).
But seriously - just sign up. Even if you're not "ready" today. It's a run/walk and there is absolutely no shame in walking your first 5K. If you wait for the perfect conditions they will never come. If you're waiting for the perfect running partner who is going to make you do it - you become that person.
I know that the race isn't always offered in your area so it might be awhile before it's here again but sign up anyway. Most races start sign ups months and months before the race. Plus - they're adding new locations all the time because it is so dang popular.
It's not that expensive, it's offered in a city near you, it's a super non-threatening race, and I guarantee you, I GUARANTEE YOU, that you will NOT COME IN LAST PLACE.
No matter how slow you think you are - there is always someone out there slower than you.
So please, don't just talk about it - BE ABOUT IT.
You will feel so good when you do.

Alright I'll step down off my soap box and if you're hating me for being mean, just remember that I'm gross and didn't mop for 2.5 years.
