Wonder where I’ve been for the past 9 months? New Year, New Me? was the title of my last blog post on January 8, 2017. Needless to say, I didn’t keep up with a lot of my goals in that post…one being that I was going to blog more often…ahem. Um… yea… about that. It’s not you, it’s me.
In January, I was in a boot, recovering from a foot stress fracture after the NYC Marathon. On October 8, 2017, I finished the Chicago Marathon–my fourth! Honestly, there were so many times in training, for so many reasons, I wasn’t sure I would make it to the starting line or even if I wanted to.
But, I enjoyed every mile of the race, rejoicing in the culmination of hard work and perseverance. The race didn’t go as I had planned (I hope to have a race recap soon), but coming in a close second in terms of enjoyment after my very first marathon, I really enjoyed the race! Thanks to those of you who have continued to encourage me on IG and rooted for me during the days leading up to the race. You have no idea how much it meant to me.
So, I’m back. Dipping my toe in the proverbial water.
What’s next? To keep learning, growing, and being the best me.
