Today is Monumental
This weekend is a huge step for me. Running a half marathon is monumental! Not only am I accomplishing a very uncommon, and difficult yet extremely rewarding task, but I have traveled here alone to do it. That fact surprises me almost as much as my love for running. It shows that I have become comfortable, and confident on my own. It takes a while to adjust from the safety of having a husband there to protect you, and keep you safe. Its almost subconscious, but just knowing he's there gives you a sense of security. Then when he's gone you feel it. Its taken some time to get used. I've been building my own security. I'm adjusting to life on my own and enjoying it too!
Here I am almost a year later discovering my love for running and enjoying a weekend alone at a destination race. I'm definitely redefining myself. Yes, I'm on the path of healing.
