This is the way it’s done. (it being the short way to spell everything)
So this morning I laced up my sneaks(for only the second time in as many months) and hit the road.
It was hard.
Just like that I went from someone who could crank out 26.2 miles in less than 4 hours to someone who struggled to keep my legs moving for 3 songs in a row.
My nose was running. My cheeks were red.
“On your Left” repeated over and over by my fellow lakefront joggers
I am feeling sort of despondent about how tough that run just was
But I guess I should be excited about all the GROWING I’ve got ahead of me.
I mean, it’s like I am back at square one…let the learning begin.
My point in sharing all of this is…
I can’t be the only one who fell off the wagon,
So if anyone is looking to get back in their shoes - now is as good of a time as any. And maybe we can get through this sucky part together.
My mantra, for now: Put one foot in front of the other
Who’s with me?
To do three things:
To love what is mortal;
To hold it
Against your bones knowing
Your own life depends on it;
And, when the time comes to let it go,
To let it go
