Run for your Life

13 Aug

FINALLY I got a run in!!!!!! It was a short run, but Jimmy crack corn it was a run and it felt good! I don’t mean to boast but I took a 45 day break and shaved 10 seconds off my pace! Charlie Sheenin’ at it’s finest. If I could get down to a single digit mile I’d be ok. I looked over my runs and I got all misty eyed looking at when I ran an 20 minute mile seven months ago, and now I do that mile in 10.51. Heck in high school I didn’t even run that pace.

I miss my boyfriend. He’s across the pond, and I can’t wait for him to get back. He called today and I missed it. He left me a cute voicemail and that gave me life lol.

I have discovered I have a lot of friends up here I need to reconnect with. The reason I haven’t so far is because I have been so darn busy. It looks as if I am going to start having some free time on the weekends so I look forward to hanging with all of them.

My heart is a little heavy tonight because a friendship I have is coming to an end. We weren’t BFF’s or anything but we all know I am trying to get some boundaries and this friendship doesn’t line up with that. No love lost, I just have to look out for my well being and lately this friend has been exhibiting behaviors that I have spent my life running away from. Maybe it’s because she is not aware of my upbringing or maybe it’s just the way she operates, but the point is I don’t think we are compatible as friends.

Time to hit the hay…..there is a 5:15 am run with my name on it!

    Good for you girlie! Exercise is great medicine for the mind, body and soul! You will find yourself ending friendships based on those very reasons. Like you said no love lost, but one must know when it is time to move on. 🙂
