Well, the week went well once my colleague left. Comments were made the rest of the week about how things "feel different" and I was even congratulated. I found it pretty sad. I guess there are people out there who, for some reason, likes to live in misery. I'm glad that she's gone and I think the classroom will be a better place.
I dropped my car off for an oil change and went for a run that was a bit over seven miles. It was a great day and I wasn't going to go that far, but it just felt right. This is the longest run since my 1/2 marathon and it did feel good. I'm still surprised how running, even seven miles, "isn't a big deal" anymore.
Once again, our bodies are amazing! The more we use them the more efficient they become. I NEVER thought I'd get hooked on running and I actually hated it when I was younger. I am a fine example of what can happen when you set a goal and go for it. If I can do it, anyone can....yes, ANYONE!
I didn't have more willpower, more athletic ability or more money for gym memberships or special food. I did have perseverance! I started this journey more than once, only to stumble and fall. I even turned around a few times, but in the end I kept going and I made it!
The path is infinite, but it gets smoother and hills aren't as big. However, the view from on top of the hills is
! The best part is there are others to travel with us and to stand beside us when we do get tot he top!
Thanks to all of you that have and still are on this journey with me!
