Erin's Thotful Spot: 3

Friends, I am at the end of week 2 fighting a cold.

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.

A nap.

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, strange. Maybe I'm just tired?

Could that be the case?

Who knows...

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? 


I'll love you forever I'll like you for always as long as I'm living my baby you'll be  Robert Munsch It see...
