Well since I hurt my back I am doing my first race. My goal is to finish and if I need to walk at times because of my back I will but I will keep on going.
Sunday is my big day. We are doing a dulathon and there are 20 of us from work that are doing this and one of our surgeons designed us biking heart jerseys. I am excited and I am excited to do this with people I know. It is an iron girl dilation. It is a 2 mile run, 22 mile bike and than a 2 mile run.
This has been an eye opener also because 2 wks ago my lifelong friend who is NOT obese but not in shape had a massive heart attack and than the next day while have an exam done her aorta started to tear off her heart. She had immediate heart surgery and saved her life. She is now left with a life long permanent damage to her body that can't be reversed and brings up so many questions and concerns and quality of life issues. I am running my race for her on Sunday and in prayer for her recovery and offering it to God. It makes me reflect on so many things from life, to the quality that I am choosing to live it and what can I change and what do I want to change and why. One day at a time. I will blog after the race on sunday and let you know. Tuesday I plan on traveling up north on my day off to visit my lifelong friend in the hospital /rehab area.
