So as most of you know, I’m going to Los Angeles in April to see a taping of the Ellen DeGeneres show. I am beyond excited. Go check out my previous post to see more details about it. I’m really hoping to get this video to Ellen so she can help me out when I go to her show. She always makes people’s dreams come true, so why not mine? I really think that I was meant to help people become healthy and happy. I feel truly passionate about it, and would be beyond blessed to do it for a living. However, I need a little push in the right direction. I need a way to get my name out there and to promote myself and my business that I’m working so hard on. Ellen is such a wonderful, giving person. She feels strongly about good causes, and I know she just wants to see people succeed in the world. So it would mean the world to me if you shared this video in any way you can to help me out!
I’m going to e-mail it to her and write her continuous letters up until April. It would be my dream to just get a chance to speak with her for a couple of minutes. My life would be so happy. She is such an amazing role model and a great person for anyone to look up to. I get all giddy just thinking about the possibility of getting to meet her in a few months!
In conclusion, she is just such a positive person and makes me happy day after day. I want to help others be happy, and I know that Ellen can help me do it. Enough with my rant, on to some different stuff!
I went on two awesome runs yesterday and today. Each one was 6.2 miles (working on that 10K!) and lasted a little less than an hour. Now for some of you crazy wonderful runners out there, that seems like nothing. For me, it’s a really big deal. I was brought up a dancer, so I have always been used to short bursts of energy that last no longer than 2-3 minutes. Running for a straight hour is quite a challenge for me! It has taken lots of time and effort to build up the stamina to run that far, and I’m actually really proud of myself for being able to do it now. I have a crazy busy week coming up, so I know that I should get in any longer workouts this weekend so I can just do some simple strength training and cardio sessions during the week.
That’s pretty much how I started out running, and even sometimes how I feel now. Whenever I think of this scene when I’m running, I’m that awkward person that laughs out loud on the treadmill.
Sorry I’m not sorry.
I have a super busy day today, which I kind of hate. I’m used to low-key Sundays, so it will be different for me to actually be productive today. All the things I have to do today are fun though, so I’m actually pretty excited! Plus, the Grammy’s and The Walking Dead (!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) are on tonight, so I am one happy camper!
Are you a runner? If so, how did you get into it in the first place?
