Time to update this. A lot has happened in the last few months. I finished my second 5K in 40:01.1 on February 23rd and can honestly say that I am addicted to running. I have pretty much signed up for a 5K or other race for every month up to September when I am registered for my first half marathon. I am looking to complete the Prairie Fire Marathon on October 13th in honor of my step-dad whose birthday is the same day.

I am also getting back into performing. I have audition for the local dinner theater (Crown Uptown) and for Music Theater of Wichita (just finished the dance call portion this morning). I am nervous and excited all at the same time.

I am continuing to take my anti anxiety medication as it has helped me in so many ways.

On a negative note (or positive depending on which way you see it), I asked my husband for a divorce this afternoon. Just a lot of extenuating circumstances and I cannot continue to pretend that everything is fine.

So, I am making quite a bit of progress in my life and my journey to this point has been phenomenal. I wouldn't trade one minute for anything because it has taught me so much about myself.

    Congrats on the 5K time! I have yet to run one, I want to get started - any suggestions? Do you always have to get sponsors or pay money? I went to the Crown Uptown and saw "Little Women" - it's an amazing place. I am on anti-anxiety and mood stabilizer meds too (Gabapentin), I tried for a long time to stop taking my meds and just exercise, because my moods are better when I work out, but eventually realized I needed to do both. I see your divorce as a positive note in that you are standing up for yourself and facing reality. I hope everything worked on with that, I know I was with my ex for 9 years and it took about 2 years after that for me to be able to leave him, once and for all, he still tries to contact me from time to time, and I have to keep putting my foot down - what was in the past is staying there, too much damage was done for me to even CONSIDER a future. I am glad you're learning about yourself, more will be revealed day-by-day!
