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

Why does it seem like every time I turn around someone is chewing my rear for running? Seriously, I took 3 WEEKS off. I had 2 WEEKS in the boot (granted I did take it off a few days early but that was because it was causing other issues). The dr told me 2 weeks in the boot, then start with a half a mile and start back slowly.

I'm doing what the dr told me to do. He didn't say wear the boot for 2 weeks then sit around for 18 more. No, he said, wear the boot, start back slow and ease back into it.

But I guess the bigger question is, why do I really care what other people think? It is such a character flaw of mine that I get so hung up on others' approval of my actions. Currently I'm still trying to explain, convince, state my case that I was allowed to try running.

No, I don't know if I'm ever going to train for another marathon. Maybe it was a mistake to train in the first place.

 I don't know. Currently I'm not sure of much when it comes to running.
