My heart goes out to those that were injured and who died in today’s explosion at The Boston Marathon. Prayers for those that were affected by this horrible attack.
So I recently had a dream that I ran a marathon. I was never one for running so this dream really took me off guard. The more I thought about it the more, I thought I should try it. The universe was telling me something. I may never get there but I’m going to make an attempt. What an accomplishment that would be for me after all I have been through! Just getting out and being able to run even if for a little bit has been so therapeutic for me! I wouldn’t have been able to do that 3 years ago!
I have a great friend and personal trainer who is helping me every step of the way. We ran/walked together last Thursday for over 2 miles and that was such a great feeling! So today I went for a 1.17 run/walk by myself and was doing pretty good. Then as I was crossing the road from sidewalk to pavement, I realized that my clumsy MS gait still haunts me as I tripped over the transition and got a little road rash. What’s a girl to do at that point? Wipe herself off and continue running as if nothing happened, bloody hands, knees and all. I think the neuropathy in my hands helped the fall onto my hands. lol. Builds character. Motivational Strength Baby!
I was hit by a car when I was 15 while riding my bike, so I am no stranger to my face hitting the pavement. I still have a chip in my tooth from that accident. But that never stopped me from continuing to ride my bike. So today’s little fall won’t prevent me from continuing on this journey. I saw this song by Frank Sinatra on Youtube posted by Argosy34 and felt it was relevant for my little mishap while running. I just replaced man with woman in the lyrics in my head. 🙂
