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.

Didn't Expect This

Well, of all of the things that have happened, I didn't expect this...

I have injured my foot - the same foot that I broke last year. I ran 3 miles yesterday, and went up the stairs numerous times.

I can't put into words what I'm truly feeling right now.

I have an appointment with the foot clinic tomorrow.

Maybe I just wasn't supposed to run this marathon.. disappointment is setting in... along with thoughts of maybe I'm just not supposed to run marathons period.
