Over 100 miles logged in January

Friday, January 31, 2014

I have found out alot about myself, my strength and my perserverence to keep going even when things have gotten tough. Repressed memories have been surfacing the past week and half. it is scary as my counselor & family are working together to help me. I have found solace on rough days through my run/walk. I am pretty proud. I also found out who my true friends are; who i can count on in a pinch when things got rough this week. My husband has been very supportive with drawing baths and just doing anything to make me comfortable.

To think three months ago i was doubting myself for lack of training for the half finally after talking with my best friend on Turkey day as we ran - he pretty much my little brother in my world and he made me realize so much as i was processing things. I got myself up out of my depression and moved I conquered so much in that half - I FOUND my STRONG!

I am here to say my STRONG is perservering as I completed over 100 miles in the past month - this while being done sick for 11 days and unable to run because i couldn't breathe. I managed to squeek this out with a little more. I am by far not done with my journey but I know I can no matter how hard things are!!!

    You are so very strong, and I'm so excited that you've recognized it in yourself! You have that rare combination to be strong and sweet at the same time. 100 miles - a century - while sick! Your strong is awesome as is your "go!"

You inspire me.

    You DID find your strong! Sounds like you're not just working on the physical strong, but very much on the mental strong as well. Let both carry you through any hardships you might be facing and know we're all behind you here!
