So our training for the Wizard of Oz Half marathon started this week and already I am running into hurdles. I haven't had an ear infection since I was a kid, but I managed to get one in each ear this week. As a result I have only managed to get in cross-training and two of the four runs I was supposed to do this week! Thankfully I am helping to lead the training group for this run with my buddy, and if we drop the ball we let others down. Like so many other things in my life I find that being accountable to someone keeps me going. When I regularly go to WW meetings I lose weight, when my husband and I are working together on our finances we stay on track, when I am doing a group Bible study I read and study my verses. It sounds so simple, but it is so effective. I would encourage everyone to find at least one running buddy to keep you on track, and if one is good a group is better right? Check out the Diva Dash 5K group or the Wizard of Oz 1/2 group and get going. Keep each other accountable - someone will always be in the mood to say - yeah let's get off the couch and go, and when you have obstacles it's much easier to get going again.
