Happy first day of 2013!  I hope you had a wonderful and safe holiday.  I was happy to send my kids off to their celebrations and enjoyed a quiet evening with my hubby and family.  It was a great feeling to wake up this morning; fully rested and ready to start the year off right!

My marathon training plan had me run intervals today; so I ran to the local high school track and completed the round.  It was quite an accomplishment.  For those of you who are struggling to start or continue a workout plan; know that it is always HARD for everyone at certain points of the training.  I had no desire to head out today.  It was cold and I felt lazy; but in all of my reading and learning, I know that in order to succeed in my marathon (and everything else in life); we must push through no matter what.  When we allow ourselves, or others, to talk us out of what we know we should be doing; we lose.

Today; I won.

While I ran; I was once again intrigued by song that was on my playlist.  It mentioned some random and really non-important tidbits that I felt needed to be shared with you.  Here, for your holiday’s amusement; are some random facts that you may or may not have known:

– 1 out of 4 Americans has appeared on TV

-Every day, 21 newborn babies will be given to the wrong parents

– the average person swallows 8 spiders in a year
