One of the predictable things about life is that there will be setbacks. No one knows how many or how often. Unfortunately, I experienced three right in a row. Noahbear had a double ear infection, I lost a little motivation, then 12 inches of snow fell. These setbacks have cost me nearly four weeks of training time and I have come to the conclusion that I will not be able to run a half marathon by Noahbear’s first birthday. But I will not let this stop me! Today I got back on the horse and ran. It was rough, my lungs were burning, my legs were protesting, and the whole time all I could think is “what’s the point?”. But by the end of my run I was so glad I did it.
Life is hard and things don’t always go as planned.
Never give up.
