So… I aspired to complete my MudRun for MS and to raise the money I committed to. Check and Check! It felt so great to accomplish both things, felt AWESOME to cross that finish line knowing that certain (unnamed) individuals doubted me. Nothing better than a little humble pie served by me!
It’s time for my next goal… this is a longer time framed one.
Hike Mt. Washington.
At least hike UP, I am not against possibly taking the bus ride back down. I am realistic.
So here it is. I am putting it out there~
OBJECTIVE: Hike Mt. Washington
TIME FRAME: before July 27th 2015 *see I’ve got lots of Prep-time”
The one thing that would make this even better for me is to have a friend to do this with… someone to motivate me and vice versa. Time to start putting it out there and see who’s game.
If anyone has ever done this hike and has any advice, strategies for training or ANYTHING to say please feel free to comment! Or just cheerlead me along!
So I did it… I challenged myself to do something out of my comfort zone by signing up for MuckFest MS to raise money for MS Research and I DID IT!! Not only did I complete the course in a decent amount of time, but I also raised $575.00 for the cause (my goal was $500).
5 Miles, 29 Obstacles, a lot of muck, mud, endurance and fun!!
See you in 2014 MuckFest!!
My son being my “model” at Harkness Park… if anyone has any opinions feel free to share!
Today’s Prompt was this: Tell us about a book you can read again and again without getting bored — what is it that speaks to you?
Second time around… what book would can I read again and again?
WILD by Cheryl Strayed…. hands down! I find it inspiring (in fact it inspired me to make the http://msdeebs.wordpress.com/bucket-list/ item… Climb/Hike Mt. Washington before my 40th birthday!
Her stregnth and determination are amazing! I read this book in less than 3 days the first time after borrowing it from the library and then bought it to read again and again… when I feel I need a little “push”…
So the question for today’s daily prompt was: If I could clone myself how would I split the responsibilities?
I feel sorry for CLONE me because she would SOOOO get the short end of the deal. Staying home to do the housework, pay the bills and be responsible. While the REAL me would get to do ALL the fun stuff. Playing with my son, spending the whole day with my camera stuck to my face or hiking the local trails! CLONE me would be forever in her “home clothes” while the REAL me would be dudded up nicely!!
Something tells me that the REAL me would be in fantastic shape and looking good, while the CLONE me would look something like I feel I look at this VERY moment… LOL…
As I reread this before posting, I find it interesting I chose to use the words “CLONE” and “REAL” versus using the word Original which would fit more so with Clone… right? Perhaps the “REAL” me is on the inside trying to get out!
Ok so I recently bought myself a brand shiny new MacMini… and so far I am in total love. Unfortunately my new love comes with a scary side note: … MIGRATION from my MacBook. I fear this… truly. My business and all its associated programs (LR, PS etc) are on that MacBook…
Has anyone done this? Can I selectively choose the items I want, i.e. applications, files or will I have to copy it all to the new Mini and then delete what I don’t want carried over. The MacBook will continue to serve as the home computer. The Mini will be for business use and use by ME, Myself and I… primarily!
Advice is greatly appreciated…
