To kick off this come back, of sorts, I actually started a post almost a month ago. Here is what I had started: I’m going to attempt to jump back into my blogging. It’s like riding a bicycle, right? Once you learn, you just never forget. We’ll just overlook the fact that it’s been over a year since I’ve posted anything. It’s not like I haven’t THOUGHT about blogging. I still compose posts in my head all the time. I just never take the time to get on here and get it done. I have no “good” reason as to why I haven’t…..I just haven’t. As much as I love social media ie my blog, it has taken a back burner during this time of my life. In hindsight what I didn’t realize when I ceased to be blogging that it would kick off a completely different time in my running life. A time for me to be BROKEN.
This has been months in the making and I’ve been through a lot of denial, tears and what seems like endless frustration to come to this conclusion of being broken. To clear up what I mean when I talk about being broken, let me be blunt. I am no longer running.
I haven’t been broken all these months. In fact, my running came to a screeching halt almost 3 weeks ago. Again, insert a lot of denial, tears and frustration. This came about after many difficult months of injury and almost non existent running. But I was hanging on by a thread, a very weak one and it finally snapped.
Well, I'm happy to report that I am back to running. Although I'd still say I'm kinda broken. Broken-ish. That meaning that I'm not 100% whole and healthy with my running. There's just so much that's happened in the last year that I can't even sum it up in one post. Regardless and perhaps not surprisingly, if you know me well, I'm fighting my way back into things. Yes, I took 3 weeks off. Yes, I broke my 4 year runningstreak. But I'm not giving up or walking away for good.
In the mean time, hang in there as I get back to blogging and build myself back up from rock bottom. I promise, it's going to be an adventure!!
