Running for Fun

I realize that this is a little late, but it is still Wednesday as I post this, so I have not missed the deadline yet. Also haven’t gotten too far on my goals, but I don’t feel as if I’ve fallen behind.  

·         My reading goal is to finish reading “Sell Your Book Like Wildfire”, “The Deer on a Bicycle”, “Deception: A Deaf Girl’s Journey”, and “Decoding Daniel”. Yesterday, my Tuesday morning Bible Study group finished reading “Decoding Daniel”, so I will cross that off my list. Only three books left!
·         Finish my novel. Of course, this will be a reach, but I have six weeks and about six chapters left. This is what I will concentrate on the most. And this is what I have not done yet this week. I did print off chapter 1 and shared it with my writers group tonight. It was well received.
·         I will try to get back on track with my blogging, twice a week here and three times a week on my other blog. Here I am, blogging for my Wednesday night check-in, so I am on track so far.
·         A previous goal was to submit three pieces each Round. Believe it or not, somehow or other, with my nuts-schedule and lazy attitude, I have submitted something this Round already. I know, ridiculous. Anyway, so I will submit two more pieces by June 26. Got a few thoughts in my head and that’s about all.
·         My daughter and I are still working on our nonprofit, Tumaini Volunteers. We are planning a “friend-raiser” for June 1. That is my goal with the nonprofit this month: help with and attend the “friend-raiser”. (In case you wonder what that is, I hope to write about it for my other blog this week; I’ll link you when I have it done. And I still have to do this.)
·         That running thing. Of all the things on my list of goals for the entire year, I think I am deleting running in another 5K. I am still running, when I have time and it is not raining, but I think I am taking the competitive edge off the table. Take away some stress.  Ran once this week.
·         Sewing. Here’s a funny one. My bachelor brother came and rototilled my garden last week. When I asked him what I owed him (which we all know has never been and never will be monetary), he pulls a pair of pants out of his truck. “Can you hem these for me?” Haven’t done them yet, hopefully on Friday.

See, I can do this, I can get back in the grove.
If the run's not fun, it's not worth it.
