Off to the Races…

Yes for my friends this could literally mean THE PONIES!!!

However in this case I have been feeling that I am literally running towards my goals. My sister and I joined a clinic this spring to learn to run 10km. We started out as snails and then at the end we were at very least little froggers hopping towards the finish line. The 10km race wasn’t that great for me as there were over 50 thousand people in the race, it started later than I thought it would, I didn’t have enough fuel in me, it was too hot and I didn’t have a hat and I had to pee and I was worried about getting home to my kids…. I finished it though!

Since then we are now starting to train for a half marathon! I KNOW! So exciting. I am now to the point where I can run 5km and am just fine… which is freaking amazing when I think in only February of this year I was dying after running 2 minute stretches. This weekend we ran 8km in the blazing sun and we finished, no walking just a quick stretch at the half way mark. What an inspiration! Although I could use a HAT!

I am also feeling more connected on a spiritual level. I have made meditation a part of my every day routine and can feel that I am more connected with the universe, I call people when they are thinking about me, I finish things right before people need them or think to ask for them. I am not running late or panicked. Serendipitous things are happening in my life and I am aware and grateful.

I have felt stalled, on hold, frozen, felt like a deer in the headlights of my life for such a long time, it feels so good to be off to the races and heading towards my goals.
