Things I have learned!

With the week not quite over, I have already learned that I am an AMBITIOUS DREAMER!
What was I thinking on my whole...."kick it up a notch?"
I must have forgot at least 50 of the "must do's" on my "be a mother list!"
Oh well, that is just me...I don't see it changing anytime maybe I can try and get 50% of my weekly goals accomplished!

I have learned that I am really good at reading great advise and passing on it on others.
As for following it myself...I could use some help!

I had two articles that literally spoke to me this week!
First one: By Anne- about choices! It is wonderful...if you have not read it...DO!
Well, I decided right then and there that I would make better decisions!
I had my husband read it and several siblings!
And then I ate a handful of Hershey kisses!

Second: By Diesel- about patience
Another must read!
I consider myself a very patient person....I am patient with my kids, husband, friends, neighbors, everyone...except myself!
Yet, still I have spent the week beating myself up!

Two or three times I have had comments about my 10K race, back in 2004, after child 2!
It always makes me feel good...because they refer to me as fast!
That would make anyone's day!
And then they always long as that is a correct time?
Of course it is a correct time!
Why would I post the wrong time?
Well, I decided to verify the time of 43:59...I went back and looked it up in my running logs. I couldn't find the one from that year...but the time of 43:59 had been carried over to the other logs as races I have run.
It stands strong in the last 5 years, of logs!
But just to DOUBLE check I decided to check the results on the internet!
And guess what I found out?
I was wrong!
I am so sorry!
I have to surrender all my "your fast" comments!

I actually ran a 44:59!

Although for me right now...that time is a dream!
I'll take it!

I have learned that my memory serves me keeps me faster! =)

Have a great weekend!


  1. 24:59 is still a wicked fast 10k! Have a great weekend!

  2. ha! that is funny. You are still kick ass fast my friend. I say better to dream big than not to dream at all. Even if you don't accomplish everything you set out to do, you most likely will realize more than if you don't aim high. Better to have tried and failed than to not have tried at all.

  3. LOL!!! its ok, lets try not to let that happen again, but your still uber fast. At least you posted it was wrong, I bet most wouldnt have done that.

  4. That's still fast, so don't beat yourself up over that. I love your advice on my blog.
    And I think it is cool to be an ambitious dreamer because it keeps you working to make that dream a reality.
    My dream is to hit 1000 miles by the end of the year. Realistically, it is gonna be tough, but I am going to try and run toward that goal and see how far I can go. :)

  5. I'm really sorry to be a buzz kill here, but there is no way that you ran a 10k in 23:59 or 24:59 or whatever it is...

    The Women's World Record for the 10k is currently 29:31 (the men's is 26:27)... I'm not sure what distance you actually ran, but it couldn't have been a 10k, and if it was it couldn't have been that fast...

    can we just say that 20:22 is a ridiculously fast 5k and leave it at that :)

  6. EZEthan-
    Thank you! I can not believe I posted 23 instead of 43. So now that I got my facts straight I am not the current world record holder.(wink):)

  7. You are so funny! Thanks for the article links.

  8. I loved Anne's writing on "Choices." It was incredible! Thanks for your support on my blog and I hope you and your family have a FUN weekend!

  9. Hi Sherri,
    I hope that you and your beautiful family have a Happy Easter:)

    BTW: I love Hershey's Kisses:) It is totally okay to enjoy a little bit of chocolate every now and then!! Yep, there is a rule...chocolate is allowed:)

  10. Aw thanks for the shout out Sherri...I'm glad you appreciated the post.

    So, tomorrow is another day...let's try again :)

  11. 44:59 beats my current PR :) Hilarious on the Hershey's Kisses. Soo something I would do! Have a great Easter!

  12. Thanks for visiting my running blog Sherri! Although I've sometimes posted eclectic sentences and funny pictures, it is mainly a running blog :)
    I hope you'll improve again your 44:59 which is an interesting running time!
    If there aren't up hills along the track I'd probably take that running time on 10 km race.
    Enjoy this Easter weekend.
