I have 3 big dreams for 2011.
1) Training myself to wake up with my husband EVERY morning at 5am so I can send him off with a colgate smooch. So far I am 2 for 18. Right on track.
2) (the #1 reason) Reading AND studying God’s Word for a good chunk of uninterrupted time and prayer. I always am encouraged when I actually am able to stay awake only to have a screaming child at 5:45am because their diaper is in a bunch or they have decided 5:30 is the new 7:30. But seriously, my day 1000x times better when I can spend that time at God’s feet.
3) Running a triathlon. Complete with the florescent spandex biking suits that add 30 pounds of thigh meat. The problem of course is bike seats and my lady parts never can seem to get along right and I always surrender after 5 minutes. So, my sweet husband has signed us up for a half marathon in May. I have trained 4 days and am realizing if I can push Bertha, (my big bad double stroller), ANYWHERE, I can do 13.1 miles without her, cake like.
