Happy Monday people! Took me awhile to muster up the energy to write this blog post today, not gonna lie.
Was a long, relaxing weekend to be sure, and the cherry on top was getting my Personal Record for my half marathon yesterday!!
Fast forward to my dad and I all set at the Starting Line for the Fox Cities half marathon! 7am start, 2 hours away… meant for a very early awakening Sunday morning! And it was 50 degrees, lightly drizzling, and cloudy. Ohhhh yeah.
Here’s my route. Here’s my time. And I AM THRILLED!! This was not only my best time for a half marathon TO DATE, but I KNOW I have a sub-2 hour half in me. Maybe even this year if I can find one in a month or so! I felt so great finishing, and my last 3 miles were all sub 9:30-pace!
This quote totally speaks to how I try and continue to juggle everything in my life. Sometimes it feels like too much. Sometimes I want to quit. Sometimes I don’t want to talk to anyone and just be alone. But I re-position myself, collect my happy thoughts, and realize that I am blessed and grateful for EVERYTHING I have in my life. Blooming in adversity is what life really is all about. Not the struggle, but the journey to accomplishing our goals and being truly, ultimately happy 🙂
(Not to mention bringing others we love along with us!) ❤
Have a beautiful week everyone. Peace & Love always.
