It’s amazing how exercise really does make you feel better.
It’s the getting out there that is the battle.
I haven’t run since September 18, 2011.
I ran a half marathon that day.
The next morning was the call about my mother passing away.
I signed up to run a 5K on St Patrick’s Day.
A week before the race
My bestie, whom I was supposed to run with, called.
Her son was being airlifted to Harborview.
He is alive!
He won’t ever walk again.
Instead of running we spent the day in ICU
Running is much more mental
than physical for me.
It helps my mental health as much as my waistline.
So why can’t I get back out there?
I KNOW it will be for the better!
“A happy heart makes the face cheerful, but heartache crushes the spirit.” Proverbs 15:13
I have weaned off of anxiety medication I have taken for 5 years.
I feel like the fog has lifted….I can think clearer
there is still that mental block
of getting out there….
“Anxiety in the heart of a man weighs it down, But a good word makes it glad.” Proverbs 12:25
I will take it to Him who knows me like none other!
