Non Scale Victory Friday!

It’s Friday! I may or may not be singing the Rebecca Black song in my head. Don’t worry, I won’t make it a habit, I’m just excited for the weekend!

I’ve been to the Baltimore Running Festival before, for work. My previous job would have runners raise money and run for us in the race. It always seemed like a fun event as a participant, but I’d be lying if I said I didn’t dread waking up before the sun on a Saturday, so I could stand shivering while we waited for our runners to arrive and then finally leave.

Well tomorrow I’m going to be waking up before the sun on a Saturday, except this time by choice! I’ve heard so many good things about this race, so I’m really excited, but also really nervous. This will be, by far, the largest race I’ve run in. Plus I’ve never done a relay race. I know once I get started running I’ll be fine, but I keep having nightmares about the exchange points going horribly wrong.

Anyways positivity is key! So non-scale victory Friday it is!

  1. I had a bad run on Wednesday, which isn’t a victory, but the way I handled it is. I managed to make myself stop stressing about the bad run, and stay positive so that I’ll have the right outlook going into the relay tomorrow!
  2. I signed a lease on a new place that I’ll be moving into in December! I’m super excited. It’s much closer to work (five minutes as opposed to the hour I’m doing now) and it’s cheaper!!!
  3. I started my Whole30 on Monday and aside from some headaches on Tuesday and Thursday it’s been going really well! I only have 25 more days to go!

Don’t forget to share your non scale victories below and have a great weekend! To anyone running in the Baltimore Running Festival, or any race for that matter, this weekend GOOD LUCK!!
