2 weeks in the boot, and I think I'm getting the hang of things. I won't deny I've been out of sorts, but I've come to terms with it.
On one of my low days, I picked up my Runner's World that came in the mail hoping it might pull me out of my funk. This edition did a feature on runners who were also cancer survivors. I say it like that because they didn't want to be defined by their disease. They are runners who overcame hellish obstacles. And here I am, complaining about a boot and a little stress fracture. It was at that moment I made a decision. Stop complaining!
So, I'm taking this In-between to rest, be a little lazy, eat some chocolate and indulge in some guilty pleasures. I can do this because I know I'll get back on the road. I wasn't so sure I would, and I think that is where most of my anxiety has been coming from. But, I've found myself day dreaming, making plans...BIG plans. And that is when I realized I don't have to worry anymore.
I'll make it back.
It'll be a long road, but I've got BIG plans. Eager to get started!
But for now.........where's my jelly beans?
