I actually have running to report! I went to the high school track tonight and skated for 20 minutes, then ran 3 miles. I'm hoping to get a run in tomorrow as well before my planned LR with EK's teacher on Saturday.
I have enjoyed looking at all the pictures recently, and have been thinking of those of you who've lost loved ones. I liked seeing Plady's and Loftmama's altars. Thanks for sharing that with us, mamas.
Welcome to all the newbies! I am glad y'all are finding inspiration here.
Balancin1, it's awesome to read your excitement about the marathon. I'm excited for you!
Shanti, good for you for clearing your basement of negative energy. I can only imagine what a task that has been. I hope your back and groin feel better soon.
Monikita, you're still a runner, and you're definitely NOT an intruder on this thread. Be gentle with yourself (says the one who is terrible at following that advice
). How are you feeling now? Did I miss an update? Did you go back to get another shot after the pain came back? I forget how long you have been running, but I think that since in this incarnation of my running I have only been at it for a little over a year, I tend to forget that I have the rest of my life to achieve my running goals. Setbacks, especially ones that you didn't bring on yourself, are tough to get through, but I guess it's inevitable that things will happen sometimes. Maybe try looking at your running in a yearly cycle. Just like you don't run hard every day of the week, you really aren't supposed to train hard every month of the year. This is a time when your body can rebuild itself, repair from all of the more intense training you have done. I'm totally rambling here... but I feel for you, mama. Hang in there.
BBM, you're getting so close! Congrats on continuing to run for this long. All of you who run through pregnancy are my heroines.
Mandy, sounds like you and your DH are both struggling.
Have you asked him about counseling? I think I understand how you feel and I know it's not a fun place to be.
Kate~mom, glad you're in a good place with your running.
cReb, your pictures are beautiful. You definitely have a gift for photography.
I know I'm missing people right and left, but I've gotta get to bed soon. Thinking of y'all...
