I came across a blog with this title and I just couldn't help but take a look. It could be because she is a Mom like me or any number of things but truthfully, I think it really described how I am feeling right now. I know I already had my little meltdown late last week so I won't beat that dead horse but now that I have resigned myself to the fact that I must wait on the sidelines for a couple of weeks, it is really starting to sink in. Reading all these fantastic posts about great races this past weekend is starting to bring out the green enemy! Don't get me wrong, I love reading how great everyone does - it is very inspirational. However, I was planning to let Marci talk me into doing Hamilton 1/2 marathon this weekend and now that is not even an option.
It could also be because I have been in perpetual motion since Friday doing work, kids, groceries, laundry, hockey practice, birthday party etc.. Normally I also manage to squeeze in the run which gives me my healthly and perfectly legal "boost" but without it I am starting to go a little nutty! I also think that my pants are tight and butt is bigger. Can that happen in just a week? My poor suffering husband...God love his tolerance of my endorphine mood swings.
So that's me, just Running to Stand Still until such time as my angry and inflamed appendage gets over its little temper tantrum and decides to play nice with the rest of my body.
Suddenly I have an urge to pull out cassette tapes of U2, The Joshua Tree and hang out in my bedroom writing in a funky journal...weird. :) For all those born in the seventies...here is my contribution for the day. My man Bono - Enjoy!
