Know to be True

Some days you just need a little inspiration.

Today it’s grey outside, it’s rainy, but still bright, and I’m in the mood for a little inspiration.

It started with this post, by the lovely Angela. I love her Daily Glow posts, and her love of quotes. I’m a huge quote person. I know they’re corny and cliché  but what can I say? The cliché had to come from somewhere right?

Because I still didn’t feel like studying, I decided to go and check out some Ted Talks, and came across this video.

I loved it. There is something about spoken word that is just so… inspiring. It always makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up.

I loved the idea of three things you know to be true.

Today I know the following three things to be true.

1. It’s grey and gloomy out, but it won’t last forever, spring is right around the corner.

2. I have amazing people in my life; honestly I do, I can’t help but wonder how I can deserve them.

3. I’m not sure what exactly I’m going to do in my life; but I’m not too worried about it, I’ll figure it out someday.

And of course it’s the weekend!

What are three things you know to be true?

Inspired

Well this past week I’ve been locking myself up trying to get a little work done.. And very little work has been done indeed. It’s really hard to concentrate when, if I feel like procrastinating, the Olympics are on TV.

I have to say I’m very glad indeed that UBC gave us two weeks off instead of one this year. I don’t know what I’d be doing if I had to be back at school already. I’d be so far behind!

I find the Olympics super inspiring. I know I could never, ever be an Olympic caliber athlete, but seeing those men and women get out there and do a sport flawlessly really makes me want to keep being active.

So to inspire myself to keep at it the way I have been at it, I went online this week and paid some money to run this little race:

bmo

No I’m not doing the full marathon, but I am going to do the half Marathon on Sunday May 2nd, right after I finish up all my exams and have to move out of residence.

It will be my first running race in over two years, and I’m really looking forward to it. It will also be my sixth half marathon. But I haven’t run a half marathon in over 4years, in fact the last one I did was the BMO in 2006. So we’ll see how it goes.

I’ve started “training” and by that I mean trying to increase my mileage and do a few speed workouts.

Have you ever done a running race? If so what distance? Would you ever want to?
