When I was younger we moved a few times. Looking back, it wasn’t quite as often as it felt like, but for a shy introvert it was crippling. I hated change. It still bugs me, but I no longer spend my lunch hour alone at an empty table reading a book.
Now that I’m older and wiser (ha!), I realize that despite our most precious wishes and plans for how we think our lives should turn out, life goes on and continues to move us in the direction we should go. Whether we like it or not. The only thing we control is how fast we adapt.
And if this past year has done anything for me it’s driven that particular point home. Repeatedly.
So on that note, here are a few things that will be changing around here.
Not the name.
Regal, fierce, warrior… I will always be those things. I wear my imaginary tiara with pride.
Runner. Yes. I run… around like a chicken with it’s head cut off. I run a very busy store, I run a household, and I run, run when I can.
This blog will be more and more about my life with some whining about running tossed in here and there. It will, in no way, be a type A- Look at all I can juggle personality thing. We all know that’s not me. (It will be a me, bent over, scrambling to pick up all the pieces thing)
I’m training for a few races this year including a half marathon in November! The Battleship Half in Willmington, NC will be my first half.
I may eventually make it to run Disney some year. It’s ok if I don’t.
On Saturday, my good friends and I will be rocking our tutus at my birthday run! Ok, it’s a color run… but it’s the day before my birthday. Is there a better way to celebrate?
Next month, there is a 5k in Willmington and in June there is a 10k followed by free wine, tapas, and manicures.
It looks like I have a good start! I just need to fill in July – October 🙂
