Mich Ultra Ft. Lauderdale Half #16. Run Buds.

Mich Ultra Ft Lauderdale Half #16. It was hot n humid then it was cloudy then it rained. I didn’t do what I wanted but my runbud Joe did amazing for his first race. We’re soggy cold and happy. Earning that beer for sure. Body just didn’t cooperate

Inspiration is everywhere.

Inspiration is everywhere. Beautiful sunrise this morning. Probably one of my fav photos of Teddy. He is so photogenic. Beautiful shell too. Run cut short today due to a strange ankle pain. Better safe than sorry. First pain in a month. Probably from the heavy fin action yesterday battling rough waves. 6 planned for Saturday. Happy humps day

Making progress!

Making progress! 3 miles done today. My brain is telling me to go further and harder and I’m trying to tell it to settle down. We’ll get there. I guess it thought the 7 weeks was a vacation. I wish it was. I think about how dark those weeks were and how it sucked in so many ways. Running is what keeps my head cleared. By the end, I’m too exhausted to battle anything else so the mind relaxes. It feels really good to exhaust the mind and to be back on the road. Huffing and puffing. Lots of huffing because my legs have lost the endurance. 35 days till my first race back. Philly RnR here I come! Teddy can’t wait to travel again

Teddy and his shenanigans.

Teddy up to his shenanigans. 2 miles again today. Little bit faster pace. Recovery is hard that’s for sure. Just so damn happy to be running again. I didn’t need to lose it to know what I had. I cherish every step I get to make. I enjoy the sweat stinging my eyes. The heavy breathing and constant struggle to keep going. I don’t ever want to be kept away from running again. Not sure I’d survive
