Turns out that all of your get well wishes healed me and I woke up feeling a lot better than yesterday, still a little weird but so much better!
Can I tell you how awesome it is to go to stores while everyone else is at work? I am so used to going at the busiest times of the day (right after work) but it was so nice to have no lines and the store felt like a ghost town.
I had something very important to get:
Skull Candy headphones are my absolute favorite in the whole wide world! I left the store only buying one thing (it is a miracle). I was going to buy nail polish too but I was so overwhelmed with the amount of choices that I got frustrated and left. I am not a good decision maker especially when it comes to something as important as the color of my 8 toenails that no one ever sees because I am always wearing running shoes.
We were out of cottage cheese and so I was forced to go to Pita Pit for lunch. (That doesn’t make sense but I just needed an excuse for picking up lunch). McDonalds was on the way back and I NEEDED a lemonade.
For so many years I have based the majority of my identity on being A RUNNER! It was something I was good at and it gave me confidence.
When I got injured last year I really struggled with this because I felt like I lost a part of who I was (dramatic, yes). I focused on telling myself that I needed to stop basing my identity off of running. While pregnant I have slowed down big time and obviously my mileage has dropped. I was struggling with the same problem until I cam across a part in Mile Markers (yes, I am beyond obsessed with this book). I realized that running can still be a huge part of my identity whether I am running 5 miles a week or 50 miles a week and there is no need to try and tell myself that I shouldn’t base part of who I am on running.
In this chapter Kristen is talking about a dear friend that was an incredible runner but became really sick and couldn’t run like she used to.
It really doesn’t matter if you are too busy/sleep deprived to run or if you are out of the game for a few months due to injury, you are STILL a runner. It is a part of who you are and before you know it, you will be back to your old self and soaking in those endorphins.
