When you read my goals for 2014, that I published on January 1st, you may have noticed that I left out any real running goals. I did that on purpose. I do have running goals for 2014, but I wasn’t sure if I was ready to make them official. Honestly, I was still searching my heart to figure out if one of them was really something I wanted.
Rewind: I stumbled across Fellow Flowers at the Little Rock Marathon Expo last year. I liked the idea and sentiment behind each color, but none of the mottos really fit me. I mean, you know I tried to make the light pink and dark pink flowers speak to my soul, but I just couldn’t. I forgot about the entire idea until a friend RT’ed their Declaration Day tweet and re-sparked my interest. I browsed there website and found this shirt. I hope they come back to LR this year and bring one for me to buy.
I also was inspired to share my running goals for 2014 publicly:
So, yeah. Now it is official.
To qualify for Marathon Maniac status, you have to run 3 marathons in 90 days. I have already completed #1 and #2 is next weekend. The Little Rock Marathon will be #3. I convinced Lisa that she wanted to do this also, and she will be right by my side for all the pain and glory.
I am going to run the Full mOOn 50k on July 12th. This is a fairly easy run on forestry roads. I should be able to complete this with no problem.
Also, the whole picking my flower thing got solved also. They released the turquoise flower today:
Most of you guys don’t know the story of my twenties. Maybe someday I’ll share all the details. Just trust me, turquoise is my color.
