I love my body! I’m gonna say it again, I LOVE MY body! It has taken me a lifetime to say that out loud but it’s the truth. It amazes me how it never lets me down, no matter what. When one part’s weak, another takes over. As I ran my three miles today I couldn’t believe how light on my feet I felt, it’s only been a week since I started back up with consistency. Running has always been my place of worship, it helps me cleanse my soul, clear my mind, and re-focus. I may not be the fastest runner, but I am A Runner, I just put on a pair of sneaks and go. I have not been feeling my strongest self lately, and I realize it’s because an important component of me is missing, the physical piece...the get up out of bed and work up a sweat piece...I’ve let my current world overwhelm my everything and lost sight of the most important part of me which is me. What good am I at helping folks, if I can’t help myself! .
Last week, I began my road to recovery and rediscovery and it felt brutal but now, now as I took off on another run, the weight lifted off my shoulders and for a very brief moment, I was free.
