My Journey…

Lately I have been a supporting actor in other people’s journeys and in the process, I have forgotten to star in my own.

And just like that, I get a reminder (this time in the form of an email) reminding me about MY GOAL!

Week 24

That’s right, just 24 more weeks (163 Days….11 hours…and 56..55…54 minutes…but hey who’s counting???) until my feet touch every borough in NYC!!!!

Last week, I brought a new pair of sneakers; Asics Gel Kayano 18 (I am a loyal Asic's Girl!) and started training for my first race of the year…I am so excited! ASC1523-TIPK

My biggest struggle at the moment; is not comparing myself to what I did last year. Circumstances are extremely different and I haven’t been able to train as much as I did in the past. All I know that I need to make myself a priority and the rest will fall into place.

Speaking of journey’s…I want to share with you a blog that I recently started to read. One of my oldest friends, Becky (I have known her since I was about 7) started to chronicle her own weight loss experience on her blog “Photography & Weight loss”. If you are looking for inspiration or if you just forgot how it was when you, yourself started to change your life for the better and need a reminder about great you felt…head over to her site! I am so proud of her dedication!!!!



  1. That's so awesome that you are going to run in the NYC marathon again, Mari!!! I can't even imagine doing such a thing. And to think, only 3 (or 4??) years ago you were getting excited about your first 5k!

  2. Yay for recommitting to yourself! I really think that having a goal least for me, without one, I just flail around aimlessly! I've decided that race PRs reset every year. No use comparing myself to the Joanne of yore. what matters is that I challenge myself NOW.

  3. I'm always proud of you and know you'll kill this! You've got this, girl!
