Life & chaos continue even when I have my rough days.
Thankfully, I am doing much better!
Running is so key for me, & I had a great run yesterday!
I have a half marathon coming up in a few short weeks. Honestly, I haven’t trained as much as I should. This will be the least amount of prep before a half that I have ever done. But, this will be #9. And I know I have it in me. Having that run there on the calendar does so much to push me out the door or on my treadmill. It really does keep me sane.
I do not look like much of an athlete. And I will never win one of the races I enter–it’s pretty unlikely I’ll ever even place in my age group!
But, my body has done some amazing things.
I still barely believe that I have run a marathon. I have conquered a challenge that most people never even face.
Thank you if you thought of me & my struggle the other day.
My depression is a fight that started 20 years ago & I am fairly certain I will fight it for the rest of my life. Today I am just glad that I have running as a weapon in the battle.
