I’ve been in a weird place the last few months.

Both in running and life. Or maybe it’s mostly life but spilling over into running? Hmmm. Who knows.

I have a birthday coming up in a few days and I’m not sure how I feel about it. I keep joking that I’m going to wear all black and mope about it. I growl anytime someone brings it up. Which maybe isn’t so nice.

I just feel…. off. Not quite sure how to describe it.

My job is great, my coworkers awesome. My running may be measly and pathetic these days but I have 41 half marathons and 2 full marathons under my belt and not really all that many people can say that. Personal life may not be where I thought I would be at this point but is anyone’s really ever? And it’s not like it’s bad or anything, just quiet. And I like quiet. For the most part. I had some weird health concerns this year, so maybe that’s adding to it? Oh and the ultrasound came back clean so yay!

I started the week with a good run hoping that would set on the right path. Not that I know what that would be exactly. The week was as crazy busy as I thought it was going to be. I forgot what day it was half the time. Which can also be a good thing if it works in your favor. And I have another 3 day weekend to look forward to as I don’t work on Monday.

Not sure where I’m going with this maybe I just needed to vent? I’ll be back in a better mood next time, promise.

  1. I don’t know how old you are, but maybe plan some activity to celebrate. I had a hard time when 50 rolled around. To get me out of that mind set and know that life could get better and didn’t have to go down hill from there, I planned for and ran my first ever race, a 10K trail, the day before my birthday that year. It really did help. BTW, I don’t recommend a 10K trail race as a first race for anyone. I wasn’t properly trained for it either.


      1. That’s funny. I didn’t realize mine was either. I was shocked. ;lol; I did think it was fun though. I need to do some trail races, but I’m not sure I’d do well with the more technical ones.
