Schedule-less but picking races

I am having trouble keeping track of my days. I spent a few days last week certain it was Friday. No, it was Saturday. Definitely Friday. Wait...

Same thing for this week. Couldn't tell you what the date is. I haven't had much of a schedule since moving to Texas. I am freelancing right now, which means I am doing hair on location, on demand. No salon, no set time to work. I had always thought I would be a super productive person if I didn't have a job. Au contraire. I am a sloth. Deep cleaning the bathrooms? Heck no. Planning, shopping for, and making a whole bunch of freezer dinners? Hah! Billy is lucky if I make dinner at all. Getting super fit because I am working out all the time? Why, the couch is so much better.

I can't do much about booking paying gigs, as I am slowly building up clientele and convincing every new friend I meet to use me for their hair needs, but I can focus on a workout schedule.

I think I have mentioned before that I have a hard time staying motivated with workouts when I am not training for anything specific. I have sort of been running and riding my bike, but I don't have a routine set up. So I picked a race, paid for it, and started making a training plan. 
I picked the Tough Cookie women's duathlon  in Copperas Cove, TX on March 2. It's a 1.5 mile run, 10 mile bike, and 1.5 mile run. Not a terribly difficult distance, and something I have done twice before with the similar Mermaid events back in CA. It's a beginner friendly race if anyone in the central Texas area would like to join me! It's also nice that 100% of the proceeds benefit the MS National Society Lone Star Chapter.

I am also looking for a half marathon to run on April  19 or 20, my one weekend I will be in Austin. The rest of the weekends in April I will be flying all over the country for weddings. There is a race I am looking at in Temple called the Flower Power race. Cheesy, but it fits the date and distance, so who am I to complain? I'm trying to convince Casey that she should run the 5k while I run the half. Any other takers? Obviously I love getting other people into races :)

On a completely unrelated note, but my ADD brain thinks I should include:
Do you guys use ebates.com? I mentioned it last year around Christmas, and used it again this year for my online shopping, and will be getting money back AGAIN! I just have to remember to go to Ebates, then to the site I am going to be shopping at, like Sephora {you get 4%  of your shopping total back!} and Amazon {3% back}.  Love it.
To think,  you could go directly to the site and spend $100 and get $0 back, or you could go to Ebates, and end up getting $4 back. I like free money.
