I've taken a little break from blogging because my life is a mess right now. I'm not feeling all peppy and chipper and didn't want any negativity coming across here. I want to encourage and inspire people, not bring you down. But this is real life. Life is not always wonderful. Sometimes it's hard. Very hard.
I'm still in that hard place. I still don't have the answers or know what I'm going to do.
But I know God has a plan for me and I'm trying to hold onto that.
I miss blogging. I miss YOU.
Now let's talk about running!!
Sunday afternoon I was scheduled to run 15 miles. It was 27 degrees, so I couldn't decide if I should run outside or stick to the treadmill. The most I've done on the tm is 18, so you know I love it!
A lot of things came crashing down on me Sunday, and I knew I had to get out of the house, no matter the temperature. So I went outside for my run. I wore my leggings, shorts on top of that, a short sleeve shirt, jacket on top of that. Gloves, hat and earmuffs! I stayed very warm, didn't get cold at all!
I ended up only being able to do 10, but it was wonderful! I really don't know what I would do if I didn't have my running!
My next race is a 5 mile turkey trot Thanksgiving morning! And...it's going to be 19 degrees! I might be regretting that decision already.
8 more days until I leave for Las Vegas to run the Tri States Marathon with Clarinda. I am SO looking forward to that! It'll be nice to get away from the cold and the snow for a few days.
What have you guys been up to? Tell me something good!!
Who else is doing a Turkey Trot?
