Week 6- Training #7



It’s hard to write tonight, not because of the weather or lack of sticking to the training plan but because a very dear loved one is very ill.  At the same time my closest girlfriend , BFF actually, had her second reconstructive surgery after a major double mastectomy last July.  This is not a selfish pity party, just the truth some days/ weeks are hard.  Sometimes I am so focused on training and concerned about my eating that I lose focus on other things.  I use running to heal my mind of stress from my work(school social worker), to be the best mom, wife and friend.

I am thankful for my running, it has given me so much freedom in being able to take on so much.  Before I recap this week and next weeks training, I leave with my mom’s favorite poem.
