Embracing The Changes In Life

Someone recently asked me about my running and how I currently feel about it. True, I'm not running 5 days per week as I have in the past. I'm not even running my usual 3. I think my new norm for awhile (maybe forever) might be 2 days a week.

How do I feel about it? I feel liberated. I feel like stepping outside of the model of runner to something bigger. Because I've said it before, and I will say it again, I am more than just a runner.
As I grow older with my family, I realize that life is constantly changing. I am constantly changing. And learning to embrace the change definitely makes for an easier transition. For probably the first time in my life, I am

Vinnie's Kids 5K Run


What a disappointment this race turned out to be. I think I put too much emphasis and pressure on myself to go out and PR. I started off with an 8:40 mile, but I just couldn't hold on to it. I got slower and slower as the distance went on. I am still waiting on the official results, but I believe I came in at 28:22.

But I suppose every run/race can't be a great one. I'll just have to train harder/smarter for the next one. I just registered for Logan's Run for April 10. I also plan to do either another 5K or a 5 Mile race on the 17th. I'm waiting to see what the fertility dr says about my running before I register for any more. Hopefully I will be able to continue to run the shorter distances.

HG got some good pics today for me of the race. I'll have to get them posted.

I am putting my training for a half marathon on hold this year. My current hope is that I will be allowed to continue to run the shorter distances. I guess I'll know in about 4 weeks or so. Until then I am focusing on the next two races.

Even though today wasn't what I had hoped for, I'm still glad I did it. Everything is a learning experience and I have learned from this one.
