In 2013 I stopped running after my partner was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer shortly before the Lake Sam half. Jaylan is doing great now, and every day he lives is a day he beats the odds. Now that the pressures of being a caretaker have mostly abated, I'm ready to challenge my body and mind as a runner again.
My goals are to rebuild consistency as a runner, as well as the relationships I was forming with all of you wonderful people. I need to listen to my body more, as I've injured myself by overdoing it, even when my body felt capable. Respect the IT band! Etc.
I'd say I'm a buddy-motivated runner, night or day.
I'm going to do a 6k in Lake Stevens in early March, and I'm considering a mid-year half.
I run for my heart. I run for my head. I run because I can.
I miss my SGLRG! I'm getting back in the game - er, the shoes. See you Saturday mornings.
Perfect, as always. :)
