Some Words of Wisdom for Lent [photo]

The Lenten season is upon us! Personally, I think Lent has become a load of nonsense. 40 days of Catholic guilt poking at you and making you feel like a failure when you realize that you gave up hope on day 3. However, I have much more hope this year. I like to think of Lent as a time for personal development instead of self-deprication. I had great success with 2009 Lent where I increased my gym time and decreased both my sugar intake and pants size. I’m hoping that 2012 will be as successful. 🙂

I took Fat Tuesday a little too literally and ingested pretty much everything that existed in my fridge today (a la Liz Lemon). Tomorrow is a new day and I’m ready to continue to train for the Broad Street Run, SIOP 5K, and Clean Air 5K. Yes, you read that right – 3 races. I’ve already planned out my gym schedule and stocked up on quarters for the large amount of laundry I’ll be doing with all of the dirty gym clothes in my future.

It’s going to be a great Lent. 🙂
