I went for a run today. I don’t think I mentioned yet that I am training for a 1/2 marathon, finally..again. I’m behind. That scares me. My knee hurts with almost every step I take, and I don’t at all have enough confidence in myself that I will actually make it. This is a huge goal of mine. I have really only three things on my bucket list before 25. If I fail at this, I’m already down to 66%. That is failing.
But today, I ran for an easy 4 miles. The best part, support from the matriarchs in my life. These women, they are powerful in my life. I can’t stand their email threads or the fact that they all need a say in every aspect of my life, but if they weren’t there, I’d never be me. They make me thankful, alive, hopeful, and in love.
We were at Burke Lake Park. The weather was gorgeous, 64 degrees, sunny, and gentle. They hiked, and I ran. Tiring it was, but to have them be a part of my training, even for a day when we were able to just embrace Your creation, it was so enthralling. They support me, and really that’s all I ever could have asked for on today of all days.
