As I mentioned in my last post, running has become a therapy session to air my emotional baggage. I leave the house stressed and feeling like I can't go on, but return home cleansed and with a little more room to continue moving forward. I need that. I know this will all pass it will be better in the end. Hindsight I look back and say, that wasn't so bad. Day-by-day it is getting a lot to handle. Running helps to alleviate some of that.
Today was a beautiful run. Bill has been a steadfast support for me and keeps me going. While I have not been super motivated, I enjoyed getting outside today in the beautiful weather. I felt strong and like I could have easily gone a few more miles when we finished. We had a strong run, mostly all under 10:00. We even had a couple miles under 9:40. Yeah us!
