"It took me a long time not to judge myself through someone else's eyes." - Sally Field

Spartan Shape-Up, Day 74:

So, more of a check-in today, BlogLand. Today was a rainy Sunday, but that was no excuse... today there was just a lot of Life happening - out of state family visiting, for one - so the WOD just didn't happen. No excuses, no blame, no guilt. It just didn't. But there is tomorrow!

Tomorrow, I'm off to another CrossFit intro class... who knows what that shall hold.

However, success today, in the form of I STILL did my food log, even though I didn't like what I had to put in it, at all. Success. AND, I tried to recruit a few more people to run the 5K at the end of the month with me - which solidifies (keep me accountable) my commitment to doing it. I'm terrified of that, can I admit that? Terrified. I run that distance 3x a week, but the concept of doing it in a *race* absolutely terrifies me. However. I will do it. Alone if I have to.

That said, I came across this great quote, which I identified with:

"If you run, you are a runner. It doesn't matter how fast or how far. It doesn't matter if today is your first day or if you've been running for twenty years. There is no test to pass, no license to earn, no membership card to get. You just run." -John Bingham

Guess what, BlogLand? I'm a runner. Holy shit.
