New favorite quote

When my mom was training for her first marathon, she kept thinking to herself, "If Oprah can do it, I can do it. If Oprah can do it, I can do it." I just registered for the Provo half marathon. From now until a little while after I cross the finish line, I will be thinking/saying/screaming to myself
How can you think/say/scream that without getting pumped up? And smiling? I think I should have a shirt made with this quote on it.

That is awesome! My sister in law keeps trying to convince me to run a half with her in the fall and I just can't bring myself to commit. I do need to do something to get in shape so maybe if I keep that quote in mind I could tough it out. I think a shirt is a must!

Thanks for the reminder. I saw something like that quote on a shirt in St. George at my marathon and I wanted to wear it but realized nobody would be reading it since I'm soooo slow. ha! I'm gettin' pumped, thanks to you!

I'm so proud of you for signing up, now you are committed to do it. I need to be more like you.

My friend's voicemail sounds like this: "Hey you've reached Shelley. I can't answer the phone right now because I'm too busy chewing bubble gum and kicking ass. Leave a message."

Anyway, that reminded me of that. Yay for a half marathon. ESPECIALLY post baby. Atta girl!
