getting back in the groove has been a challenge. my transitioning skills are lacking. hence the reason i am habitually late for just about everything. my kids have even started telling me to be at places a half hour early so i will be on time. well, close to being on time.
the holidays, a trip to cape may, and the happy new year have thrown me completely into mayhem as far as my schedule goes.
i ran one time last week, it was the first time since right before christmas.
i wanted to get back on the horse this week. on monday i ran three and a half miles and on tuesday i was so uninspired and wanted to just shit-can the whole thing. i told myself i would do two miles because it was so late in the morning. instead, i did five miles. (my transitioning skills worked in my favor.)
today, i met my friend kerry for a four mile run in the winter sun with a breakfast reward.
as we ate and chatted in the diner, an older man looked at my shirt and asked if i ran the marathon. i said, "well, i was supposed to run the marathon..." he smiled. then he asked if it was postponed.
for me, yes.
there is a marathon to be run in 10 months.
thanks to my friend, jessica, for picking up my 2012 nyc marathon shirt and medal. a token for all my training for the marathon that wasn't. but for all the running that was.
