My First Did Not Start

Yesterday I was supposed to run the Runway 5K.

Supposed to is the big word. I’ve had some health issues and on Friday the Dr said the one thing I didn’t want to hear: you can’t run tomorrow. It’s been a frustrating week and she took away my one coping tool. So instead of running I spend time with family who graciously welcomed me in while my husband was away.

The hardest part to me is that I felt fine. It’s just because of the medication I’m under that I couldn’t go. Sometimes life just isn’t fair. Now I have to let my body heal and process the medication, hopefully it will be quick and I’ll be able to run and even to sign up for another race.

  1. So sorry to hear about the frustration of not being able to do what you love so much – run!!! Sometimes life slows us down with some pretty big speed bumps – we hope things turn around for you soon!

    • It still a little frustrating but I’m dealing with it better than I thought, In the last two weeks I’ve really learned that some things just can’t be controlled and you just have to go with the flow. I still have to wait to be cleared for running. It’s not worth putting my health at risk, so I’ll just have to stick to walking for now.

    • You’re welcome, it’s a great site and she has some good ideas food wise that can be applies to kids. I even got to do a guest post there a while back 🙂
      And as far as running, I’m going to wait until I’m clear and look at other race options. I’ll probably have to train again because 2 weeks of no running might undo some of my previous work.
