The kids had their last cross country race this weekend. It was cancelled last weekend because of all the rain we were getting. This weekend was beautiful, but SO cold. Thankfully they only had to do 1 1/2 miles, get their medals and go home, lol!
As I was watching them run around the track, I suddenly became overwhelmed with emotions. Our lives are SO completely different now then they were 2 years ago. My kids are growing up happy and healthy because of the changes I've made in my life... our lives. Two years ago, there's no way I would have signed them up to run cross country. That would have meant that I'd have to leave the house to do something with them.
Things like this have a tendency to bring all of these emotions to the surface. A lot of them are happy, because of the way we are living now, others don't feel so great. There's still a lot of sadness for all the things I missed out on because of my obesity. I can't change the past, but I sure as hell have improved their future.
And today it was MY turn to go out in the freezing cold and get something done. I think I may have Katy take all my pictures from now on, she's pretty good!
5 1/2 miles in 40 degree weather... and it started snowing. Who IS this girl?!?
