2 down, 2 to go

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?
