Competition heartburn

 I think at some point or another we have all experienced heartburn,right? Well, today it wasnt heartburn for me but it was COMPETITION burn that I had that I never knew I had! I mean, I thought  I only had it with my spouse in a fun way of course, but today as this fiasty gal set out with my sister on our first day of our 5K training, I discovered I was experiencing a bit of "competition burn" from another young lady. Oh, how it burned and kept nagging at me with such irritant! I was so taken back by my nagging,burning, and irritating desire to compete with another runner that I simply wore myself out thinking, I thought I was good at running! Geezzz shes making circles around me on her "tired day" or lack of "sleep day"as she called it! Anyhoo, I finally chilled out and just decided to go at the pace for me, and enjoy both JOURNEY  and DREAM layed out before me with ease! knowing that where I am, I will not stay, but I will move forward if I focus on the main reason of this new journey to embark on my dreams and desires and I to will achieve greatness through facing new challenges!
So, I popped a couple of "tums"called "EASE" and rested in the fact its not how fast I run but its that I endure to the end and finish my course with all my best efforts put forth no matter who may be stronger,faster, and fitter! its all there to make me strive to give MY best and nothing less. Hoping many journey with us 2moms on the run as we laugh,cry, or "die trying" anything that we think we couldnt do because of fear or sheer complacency!

Training day with NOOO Sleep!! I did it!

Okay people today was Training day and I was a little nervous or excited about what we would be learning.Last night was kind of a nightmare for me because my little one decided she wanted to  go to the farm to see the animals, well 4am technically is the next day haha. Phillip took care of her so I could snooze for 2 hours b/c I was going to be back up at 6am. So even though I didnt get 2 more hours of sleep, my alarm went off and I hit the snooze for 30 min. then it went off at 6:30 and so I was up groggily plodding along for my clothes and by the way I forgot to eat something, trainer said to always eat something.


   I met my sister and we headed to the Rec. center, we were greeted by two trainers who were friendly and knowledgeable. The great thing abut them is they started me off right where I belonged as a beginner. So we did the treadmill for 30 min. and then out to the lawn for lunges and sprints = Bun and Thigh Pain. What I would say is that there will always be some sort of obstacle we face that could cause us to just rollover and get our rest, but then that would be  too comfortable for those pressing towards a goal. Yes I was sleepy at first and I wanted to stay in bed but I have Big girl dreams to get to , and so do you!

 Every woman has a dream for herself, plans for her life, things she wants to accomplish. What are your dreams ? And what are you doing today to make them happen? This 5k journey is just the begining of my dreams and I plan to put one foot in front of the other to accomplish my dreams. I Love the saying " If it is to be it is up to me" so true no one can do it but us!Ever heard of the you can do it book, its a grown up badge book for women, it allows you to dream and guides you on how to accomplish them. Candice and I are going to use this book to blog about because we are going to actually set out to follow our dreams.Please feel free to share your dreams with us, We can inspire one another! GO GIRLS!! We are planning on sharing one of our accomplishments with you our public speaking presentation we had to give in class, I know public speaking makes a lot of people cringe, but even though we were scared we did it anyways and that is the premise do the things that terrify you and then they wont terrify you anymore.

1st training day 5K or scared to death running through the HOOD!

Oh dear God,
HMmmm which scared me the most? First impression of my trainer or the HOOD he took us to train?

Day One / 5k training Journey of a newbie

Today was the big day! Candice and I showed up for our training and had a few surprises. I sense change is on the way. I overheard a lady say she had a baby 13 weeks ago and I was impressed with her determination to shed the baby weight., you go girl!For the first day it wasnt bad, there were many different women that attended all shapes and sizes and varying in age, there is just something special about having a goal and a team working for the same goal that inspires me.This is just the beginning! It is Never too late to set and reach your goals!

2moms 5K Journey


Hey Everyone,My sistah and I are excited to began this blog with much enthusiasm! You might think,What started this blog? Well, it began from a thought yesterday while together! My sis says, hey I want to make jewelry. I say, then let's do it! I said, the only thing different between people who come up with an idea and act on it and it soars beyond their imagination is that they actually JUST DID IT! We JUST TALK IT! SO, as my sis is new to running and I have been broken in by running for about 5 years I have had some sebaticals moments due to injuries and a busy busy Mom life, but we have decided to get back on track and JUST DO IT..... together, so we joined a 5K training team with the YMCA for 16 weeks. We hope that everyone who desires will follow us (crazy sistahs,determined Moms,and new college Moms in our 30's) not only on our 5K journey but also follow us on our Journey to achieve the things we always "all" TALK ABOUT IT but "never" JUST DO IT!                                                                                                                                                     Candice Sheree
