As shameless as it seems, I bribed myself into a run tonight.

4 Naked miles (approximately 38 minutes total run time)

One word is responsible for tonight’s run: bribery. As shameless as it seems, I bribed myself into a run tonight. After feeling the blues last week, I knew I needed to start this week’s training out right (Boston is only 9 weeks away!!). What’s a girl to do in a moment of desperation? Promise rewards at the end – and that’s exactly what I did.

I bought a new fragrance from Bath & Body Works over the weekend and told myself if I did my best, a bubble bath followed by leg-pampering shea lotion would await. It may sound silly to some, but the allure of a freshly scented bath helped get my head in the game tonight. And that, my friends, is success.
