I'm officially annoyed - but better!
My husband is still not 100%, but he's such a champ. He goes to work all day and still manages to help me out when he gets home. On Wednesday he gave me the most beautiful gift a mom could ever ask for.
Seriously, it was amazing!
I had been dealing with body aches, nausea, headache and chills ALL day. So, at 6:30 I went to "lay down for a minute" and slept for 2 hours. Obviously I needed it because I felt so much better on Thursday. Anyway! I never had a fever, ...so strange. Maybe I'm just tired?
Could that be the case?
So, as I was reflecting on this week and looking forward to next week (when I will for SURE be back out running again) I thought of this quote by Dean Karnazes.
Run when you can, walk if you have to, crawl if you must: just never give up.
I find this quote to be so inspiring. It doesn't matter if I'm having a good running week, or a bad running week. I am just so thankful that I am able to run. The old me would have never been able to imagine herself running in anything - much less MARATHON TRAINING!! Seriously... who have I become?
So, on the days that I am disappointed with my training it helps to to see images of the once highly obese me, and know that I have lost over 70 pounds and have completely changed my life and my health for the better!
So friends, instead of a question, I'm giving you a challenge. Will you take some time and crawl with me? Maybe you're not a runner - maybe you've been sick, or busy or whatever the reason is that you haven't laced up your sneakers. ... Will you crawl?
