Gettin' my motivation on!

Since this will be the last baby I birth... I'm determined to get myself back together asap.   I know this will take a lot of determination and discipline, and quite frankly I'm a little nervous about it.  I've gained 52lbs this pregnancy and tacking on a few years since my last pregnancy I'm pretty sure it isn't going to just "fall off" like the last two.   I decided I needed a deadline... something to work toward.

A few months ago I found this website for The Color Run- a colorful 5k run.  Well, at that point there wasn't a race anywhere near my town, but there was one in September in DC.  I contemplated going to visit my mom that weekend and running there. However, I kind of forgot about the run for a bit and then yesterday decided to look up some different 5k runs nearby.  I also decided to check the Color Run website, in which I found that they'd added a ton of new locations- one being just a half hour from me!

I signed up.  I'm in.  July 22 I'm running a 5k and I'm going to have a blast!  I'm hoping to get 3 other friends to sign up on my team so I won't be running alone (or at least won't be in the race alone).  I'm super excited and even MORE reason to be excited to have baby sis here so I can begin getting back to normal and start training!
