One Day More

Yes I made a Les Miserables reference. Yeah, I'm kind of obsessed. I don't judge you, you don't judge me. TOMORROW IS THE MINI! I am SO excited and I'm not entirely sure why. This is the last race of what I've deemed the "spring race season" but I just love it. It's really fun, it's in my hometown and the shirt is pretty cute this year. I also missed it last year because of my "I'm too fat to run a half marathon." mentality. So in my state of overexcitedness, and inspired by this post and this post by one of my faves Run Eat Repeat I thought I'd share with you some of my fitness idols. I have a lot so it's hard to narrow down but I'll do my best.
Pink. I'm obsessed with Pink in all ways so why should her tremendous body (even post-baby) be an exception?

P.S. - Have you watched her video for Try? Or Glitter in the Air? Amazing feats of athleticism.


Kara and Shalane. Doesn't every runner (at least) love these two? They're so gracious and talented and incredible athletes.

In more runner news, Track and Field is packed full of bodies I want. Allyson Felix, Sanya Richards-Ross and Jessica Ennis.

Last but not least are my triathlete idols. To bike like Caroline Steffen and run like Mirinda Carfrae would be a dream come true.

So that's that. As you can see, I'm obsessed with athletes. I'm also obsessed with abs...and arms...and using the word obsessed. But don't fret! These are totally healthy idols for me because not a single one of these women follow some kind of fad diet or any unhealthy means of "getting skinny". They're fit as hell and the only way you get like that is with proper diet and exercise which is how I try to live my life. I'll likely never look like any of them but they give me a nice gauge of what I want ME to look like. And you can't blame a girl for dreaming ;)
Wish me luck tomorrow and feel free to let me in on your fitness idols!
