“Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.”- George Bernard shaw
I sat at my desk today, thinking about how much my life has turned into “Groundhog Day”…ever see that movie? I feel like a robot and after being sick for about three weeks, I am screaming inside.
Why? Good question. I was home sick and didn’t talk to anyone in person most of the time. I tried to run through it and it was really hard. I am always reminded about how we need to live life to the fullest…so I have been trying hard but that sickness I had killed my energy. I cannot remember ever feeling so sick. I don’t want to feel that way again and I hope Lilly doesn’t catch it!!!
I have built up cabin fever. I need to get out and have fun! Lilly and I went to Panera but that wasn’t very exciting.
I think about all of the amazing places I have been and I get that itch to go. Then, I realize that someday I need to face my surroundings and find happiness here. I love running around here. I think the Winter really makes me feel like Eeyore. I think I was born for adventure…I crave it and I get lonely at home. It isn’t the worst feeling but I know what is out there and I want to explore!
Next up is Martha’s Vineyard for my 20 miler. After being sick, I am scared. I am determined to finish. It is also on Valentines Day, so I am spending the morning with my love of running… Then Starbucks on the way home :)!!!
