For Christmas this year Scott and I had agreed to not buy gifts for one another. It was understood that the focus would be on the kids as he had a birthday in December, and I have one in January. You can imagine my surprise when after the kids had opened their gifts, he handed me a box. I had accidentally viewed a charge on our credit card in which I was not supposed to see, so I had an idea what was to come. I knew about the Ipod but didn't know about the Nike Plus Program.

However, I didn't know that on the back of the Ipod Nano he had it inscribed with "Don't Stop, NEVER Stop. Mostest Ever Infinity" (something we have said to each other since we started dating). This is by far the most thoughtful thing he has EVER done for me....EVER.
I think it was the very thing I needed. I have never ran better or further! I feel inspired....and now motivated to stay on track. As I put in the miles, I feel more and more confident about my pursuit to run this half marathon in April. I'm not going to stop, never stop!
If you have a Nike + system, join the 500KM challenge with me. My running partner Kristina and I are working together to put our miles in too. (our stats are at the top right). It helps to know there is a goal in sight....a little friendly competition doesn't hurt either!
