Motivational Monday-Challenge Yourself

This past weekend I had a blast.  A big group of my friends and I join made a team for the Run or Dye color run here in Houston.  We each signed up and passed the word along to others.  One thing led to another and we ended up with more than 20 in our team.  It was a family run, so most of us brought our kids along.
If you have ever wanted to run, a color run is so much fun.  I did one and now I am hooked.  I talked about it so much that I got my friends excited as well.  The best thing about this fun run was that this was some of friends' first ever race...  They never thought they could finish a race but they were wrong.

I love to run.  I never thought I was going to be able to do it.  But someone put me up to the challenge and we did it.  I have not stopped running since.  I love to encourage others to find something they think they cannot do and challenge themselves.  You never know unless you try.  I tell that to my son all the time.  I love that he is an avid runner and physical fitness is a part of his life already.  We have incorporated fitness into our family and our daily life.  This weekend we got to share it with our friends as well.  See you are not alone in this, grab a friend.  Help each other out.  Challenge one another or join challenges together.

Here are some of the pics from our fun run before we got hit with color:
 This is us having fun in the pit right before the race...getting pumped...
Here are the after pictures with all the color on us...
What are you waiting for?  The year is not over.  You have more than 3 months left before this year is over, don't wait for January 1st to make a New Years resolution.  Challenge yourself today.
