Sieze the day....
So I was thinking. After I finish my first marathon (If i finish my first marathon..)...haha. I was thinking about getting a "carpe diem" tattoo on my foot. Sieze the day....thats pretty much me in a nutshell. I have woken up days and said to myself and others "You have once chance to live this day.....one chance to live February 13th, 2008, How are YOU going to live it?" My husband yelled at me and told me not to think that way...but it's true. You got one shot to live this day...so if it starts bad...are you going to let that affect the way you live the rest of your day? You still have a shot at making the last half good! Life is too short...I've seen too many people die young. I lost one of my good friends to cancer last year (he was 22) and he made the MOST out of the last few months of his life. www.jeffsballparktour.com check it out. We never know when we are going to go....so make everyday count. Live it the way you want to. Run an fing marathon. Sieze the day.
I figure that tattoo would be a symbolism of putting my mind towards something and achieving it. I could look back on it after I'm 200 lbs after having a baby and think "wow...I trained for a marathon when I was putting in 17 hr days in grad school...I can get my butt back in shape!" Also it can be reflective on any future accomplishments, races, etc I achieve. It's not limited to running, but I want it to remind me of running. Give me your thoughts! haha.
On the flip side, still cruddy. Managing to get my miles in...but it ain't easy. Carpe Diem ya'll :)
