A day of Fun, Hills and Feeling Great
Today was a nice day - Wed, my day for myself. I conquered many hills today - 3 workouts. Felt great...but not taking advantage of it. It is so amazing observing how the body goes through recovery...almost like getting over a cold and the feeling of being back to yourself again...can't rush it, and then one day you wake up and all is back.
I met with Fleet Feet today for a local interview for their paper. And before I met with them, I had thoughts go through my head...what do I want them to know? Well, I didn't want to toot my horn and tell them what is to come, what I've done, all the training, etc... but I wanted the article to inspire, especially other Mothers. We have such an innerstrength that comes through having these children that we raise, both physically and mentally...we have to block out our own pain and problems to handle theirs - and not that I am trying to be a marytr but only seeing the metaphor of ultrarunning in our daily life - so intertwined. The many sleepless nights and still having to function...great 24 hour training! So...that is what I hope to have accomplished in this newsletter. Oh, and enjoying the process, and stepping outside the comfort zone, and smiling through it all...hopefully that is what I accomplished!
So, I am looking forward to many exciting adventures to come...its such a mystery - I love suprises, I love exploring, adventures, all the process of life - good and bad...we grow from both.
And now...back to the kids...because they are still awake...and all needs to be silent in this house!
