When I left off in October, Cross country at the middle school was just beginning. It was a crazy few weeks. Both my 12 and 13 year old girls competed so well against each other and between the 2 of them came in 1 and 2nd at every race. Yesterday was the final championship they placed 16th and 22nd out of 150+ girls! And another cross country season is behind us!
The last week of October I was involved in a car accident. Thank goodness no one was injured but I did total my car. It was my first accident, so it was really upsetting. One week later my doggie became very ill and was diagnosed with an aggressive form of bone cancer. They said she should live thru the holidays. She took a turn for the worst and I had to say goodbye to my love just a few days later. I can't even explain my broken heart. She was my girl, my friend. Faithful and loyal. Better than any real friend I ever had.
Some how by the Grace of God I managed to make it thru to December. Beaten down and broken I find myself trying really, really hard to stay positive. Even though I am grateful for so much, I can't help but to feel sad at my circumstances.
Everyday I am hopeful. I was lucky enough to get a new vehicle. Which is way nicer than my old one.
My Husband did what any Husband would do after seeing his wife grieve the loss of her best friend. He brought me Winston:
The loss of my transportation, the loss of my dog, the loss of friendships along the way has been a rough road. Running has helped me stay focus and purge all my bad mojo. I for sure didn't get the miles in I wanted to because of cross country but I live in Arizona so we have plenty of 70 degree weather going on right now and I am looking forward to catching up on some miles!
Here are some very general stats:
Run: 41.50 miles
Run: 28.00 miles
December 1 - 10, 2014
Run: 14.00 miles
Looking forward to another new year and a fresh start.
