Thought I'd share an update over here. It's been a long time G plus :)

40 years ago on the East Coast, a fearful little girl in the last house on a dead end street had a dream that one day she would escape her circumstance and get herself to the furthest place she could imagine at the time, the West Coast.

30 years later, that same little girl in that same shoebox house, laid her head next to her dying mom's. She found herself once again fearful and wishing for an escape, dreaming of being a million miles away somewhere along the Pacific. In that moment, she promised herself and her mom that someday she'd find her courage and get herself where she wanted to be.

6 years have passed, now that little girl is a grown woman. She's 50 pounds lighter, having run thousands of miles and her first marathon, she's finally ready to conquer her fears and keep that promise and make that journey in her old Toyota Highlander with just an open heart and 1500 bucks.

Life is for living.

Good morning, you guys. Here's my past week. 14 miles running and 3.1 cross training.
5 miles on the open road last night was my furthest in a long time & exactly what I needed. So grateful I'm able to keep shuffling on. #CrossRunners
Happy Saturday β˜‚οΈ

2 mile walk/run on the dreadmill tonight. The bigger accomplishment, however, was bypassing the Valentine's Day candy at the entrance of the gym 😳 Kinda a weird place for candy haha
The highlight of my day had to be the guy walking by while I was running. He stopped in front of the window & started doing goofy MIME & jumping jacks & running in place. Thank you to whoever you are for making me smile :) It's totally the little things that can make the biggest difference in my day
Slowly gettin my giddy up 🀠

Trying to get back into social media. Life has been a little challenging lately. G+ is the last social media app to work back in. When I was last active I found that I'd get overwhelmed trying to be sure I responded & read as much as I posted. So many people I love connecting with on here. Giving it one more go.
This was my last run Fri #CrossRunners

My last smiling running selfie for a bit #CrossRunners I think I figured out what's wrong. Posterior tibial tendon dysfunction. I don't think it's tendonitis yet but I can tell I'm just aggravating it & prolonging it the more I push it. Not sure why all the injuries lately. Taking advice from a friend though and resting a bit.

The Irish girl in me was pi$$ed walking back today. I have Halloween 5K with a fun party afterward tm. But I decided to be grateful instead. Things could be much worse. And I can still go watch, cheer & maybe have a beer.... or 5 πŸ™€ I'm kidding. Sorta ;) Happy Friday, you guys πŸ’—
