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

NOOOOOO.. Not the FLU!!!

Yep, what started as a little cough on Thursday night for Lil Man, turned into a low grade fever by midnight with a full blown storm by morning. I took him to the pediatrician and they did a flu test. He tested positive for the flu. You've got to be kidding me right?!? He had the shot so I'm hoping that will help him.

But this came out of no where, as I suppose most sickness does. But as many of you know, I'm about to peak in my training for the marathon. Today was supposed to be 17 miles. My Lil Man was just too sick for me to leave him. So I've pushed the run off until tomorrow, and hoping I will be able to leave him long enough to get it in. Next week is my one (and only) 20 miler. I've been snotted on, sneezed on, and had his slobbery fingers in my mouth. So, all I can do at this point is take care of him, hope he gets to feeling better soon, and hope that Hubby and I don't get it.

I currently have a slight sore throat and a pounding headache, but no fever. I'm hoping this is just from the lack of sleep as Hubby and I were up most of the night last night.

My Marathon is 4 weeks from today.
