Weekly Roundup 12.18-12.24

Ok real talk.  It’s the most wonderful time of the year and I wasn’t feeling it.  With so much holiday cheer going on around me, I should be all holly jolly.  I mean I love Christmas.  But the truth is I’ve been struggling.  I was checked out all week.

I have so many great people in my life but now and then I still feel so alone.  A little lost.  Anxious.  Full of self-doubt.  Beat up and worn down.  We all have our moments and sometimes I know it is ok to not be ok.  The highs are high and the lows are really low.  The important thing is that we pick ourselves back up and continue on.  Nothing—good or bad—lasts forever.

I’ve never been one to set New Years Resolutions and I’ve never looked at January 1st as a significant date.  This year seems a little different.  2018 brings new goals and a sense of renewed hope.  I know what I want.  I know what I deserve.  And I have the best family and friends supporting me.

I am thankful to have running to turn to.  I crave structure and routine in my daily life.  Marathon training gives me a purpose.  It provides me with something to work towards and focus my energy on.

The next 16 weeks will not be easy but I am totally committed.  I am healthy.  I am strong.  I work hard.  I will trust the process and I will get through whatever this is because when nothing is certain, anything is possible.
