In the past few years I made it a point to go for a run on my birthday. As a wife, mother and runner this year I will do the same, however I have to first be a mother and wife and get treated to breakfast by my family. Then I can be a runner and go out for my annual birthday run. I was going to go to a breast cancer walk this morning; but my plans didn’t work out as I wanted them too. It’s ok, I will still do good deeds throughout the year. It’s a gloomy day outside, but I don’t care. I will still take my time to myself and get in my run. Rainy days are not always bad for running. Sometimes they are more peaceful than a sunny day.
On our way home from breakfast we stopped into our local woods (Tyler Mill) and checked out the river. The water was so high from the rain, it was cool. I’m looking forward to heading out for my run, reflecting on my past year and looking forward to the new year ahead.
I am looking forward to what this year has to bring for me. I have plans in the works for 3 marathons within this year which is a much bigger goal than I had last year. My daughter will be starting kindergarten in the fall. My son is doing great in school and I am thankful that I am healthy and that my family is healthy.
Bring on another year!
