I haven’t blogged in a while. I suppose sometimes life gets the best of us, and as a result we end up’ under the weather’, finding ourselves at a loss and needing rest.
I ran Saturday with friends as the “Fox River girls” for a run on St. Patty’s day weekend. The weather, COLD, the conditions were left with freezing rain and snow as we neared the end…but we did it…we ended up running part of the course twice due to my friend misplacing her ID. I resulted in running 4.44 miles in 44 minutes. Coincidence? I hope not…we had such a blast regardless of the crazy circumstances!
Sunday’s long run was foregone as I was sick as a darn dog. 3 runs in terrible weather, along with my crazy schedule resulted in total physical breakdown and I didn’t move from my recliner more than twice on Sunday.
I gathered myself up enough to go to work today, despite chastising “why did you come in, etc.”…I simply don’t have time to be sick, and the only thing I can set aside is my running. Tomorrow I will hit the treadmill vs. going out in the cold, and give myself at least that “bit” of rest.
Lastly, I will say I have come full circle in many aspects of my life. I have found that people reach out to you when they need, but the key is, are they there for you when you reach out?
Hmmm….that list has gotten smaller. But quality trumps quantity any day.
You can say life is busy or hard…or you can embrace the awesome moments we are given.
I choose the now. How about you?
