I completely let that injury wreck me.

I have been depressed and have been taking it out on my body. I need to treat it with more respect, even if it did betray me with this injury. I need to be able to adapt to things like this, and deal with disappointment. Even if I'm not able to run my 1/2 marathon in September, I can't let it ruin my life.

While part of me really wants to crawl into a hole and not talk to or see anyone, I have to keep going. And I have to be true to myself, the healthy, athletic girl who does not do hateful things to her body like binge on whatever's available.

OK, enough venting. Maybe the next blog will be happier.

    emoticon to hear of your injury. That does put a damper on things, but it also makes us appreciate what we take for granted all the more.
    You'll heal. You're still an athlete & will be able to do more again, just not in your time frame, but maybe there's a lesson to learn in this. Professionals get injuries all the time & bounce back & so will you.
    Just change your game plan. If life hands you lemons, make lemonade.

    here's a verse that I've been praying on lately...
    I will be happy when the way is rough,because it gives my patience a chance to grow.So I will let it grow, & not try to squirm out of my problems.For when my patience is finally in full bloom,then I will be ready for ANYTHING, strong in character, full & complete. - JAMES 1:2-4
