Need A New Plan...

Tuesday, April 23, 2013

Yes, it is all about the journey. I know that. I've preached it. I've lived it. I've loved it...most of the time. Learning to roll with the punches that the journey brings is becoming a specialty of mine. I now have discovered that the half I've been training for is during a weekend that is not open for me. Not by a long shot and there is literally nothing I can do to change this. To say my heart sank a bit is an understatement. Very disappointing for me :(

But it's all about the journey, so when one door shuts another one opens. Now it's time to find the new door and the new half to work towards. I'll continue training as I have been all this time and I'm going to try something new. I'm not going to get upset and feel victimized as I have done in the past. I'm going to see this as how things are supposed to be right now and let life take me to where I'm meant to land.

So just finished up my evening run, chin is up and looking for any suggestions for runs in the San Diego/Riverside area for the second half of this year. I'm looking forward to this journey just to see where it's going to take me :)

    Fantastic attitude.
    I was hit with some disappointing news today - a cancelled beach vacation - BUT unlike you it took me quite a few mins to get past the disappointment & find the good. BUT like you, I am trusting that God has a better plan for me.
    There are a gagillion races out there, I'm sure you'll find the perfect one for you!

    Check Runner's World and Competition online. They usually have a great race listing. Life can give us curve balls. We just have to be patient, change it up, then hit it outta the park! Stay strong and focused.
