Please, do get up in the morning! Open your eyes, ignore the rain, it only looks bad as long as you are inside. And maybe for these first minutes that you spend outside, waiting for your watch to find the GPS signal. And for the 1st kilometre when you are still finding your feet and getting over the soreness. In the end, it will always be worth it. Getting up early, plunging into the day ahead, head on, raising the energy levels and setting a tone for the rest of the day. I didn’t really want to wake up in the morning. Ugh, rain, again. Every time I decide to do the Park Run. But I should get over it and just do it. You should too.
1. Own and live in a house.
Continued listening to investment podcasts while out and about. Ate a free lunch. Again. And wrote a report about it. Again. Gain something, give something. Started working on a bigger translation too to bring in some more money than the scraps that I get for mystery shopping.
2. Write AND publish a book.
Not so good on this front. I was kind of tired after the park run, so didn’t manage to do any real creative stuff. But I did get on track with all kinds of blogs that I have. The athlete’s profile, investment blog, even a post in the food blog! Not to mention this one! I think it is great to finally get back on track because then I will soon feel free to dedicate myself to true creative writing process.
3. Win a major race.
Got my ass out of the bed in the morning, ate a bit too much but did slightly better at the park run than the last time. 20.57 is not the kind of time that would make me happy but it’s the end of the season and I’m obviously tired. I placed 62nd out of 562 runners, 8th woman, 2nd in my age group. Can live with this but will try better next time. Next Saturday I will actually live in a house with a lovely dog and do not have to stuff myself with food just because they stop serving breakfast after 9.30am (and the run is 9am).

Eastern European food corner at the local supermarket. No Estonian food, mostly Polish. Well, we always like to think that we are North Europe rather than East. Looks like others are also getting the point.
