My Pursuit of Happiness and Skinny Jeans

My journey to a smaller jean size

This Just Makes You Smile…and I Needed a Smile.

on May 30, 2012

So, I’ve been feeling a little bummed about the race results on Sunday. I really wanted to hit 2:30 and I didn’t.  Everyone keeps telling me that 2:40 is still great and that it’s an accomplishment just to finish, since 12 weeks ago I wasn’t running at all.  I know all of this, but still it sucks a bit to miss my goal, especially since I feel like I let my sister down.  She gave up her sub-2 hour goal to get me across the line in 2:30. She really tried and did everything she could to get me moving, and I just couldn’t do it.  And that sucks.  So, while everyone is looking at the positives of the run, I’m still disappointed.

Anyway, that’s just a bit of background context about why I’m feeling down.

While driving into work today, and listening to Q107 as I do every day, they were talking about some flash mob proposal that was supposed to be just awesome and that you couldn’t help but smile when you saw it.  So, needing a smile, when I got into the office I took a look.

They were right.  This is awesome, and it did make me smile.  I hope it makes you smile too.

Have a great Wednesday everyone.

    Og, you didn’t let me down! I’m super proud of you, and you need to be proud of yourself…you ran TWENTY ONE POINT ONE KILOMETERS!!! You WILL run a 2:30 half, Sunday just wasn’t your day!

    And I loved the video….made me smile and brought tears to my eyes 🙂
