I have great friends. In the aftermath of discovering I can't run Detroit this year, my friend told me to not worry - she'll find something even better for me to run. Another well meaning friend said I could still do the 5k or find a relay. I know they meant well, but I wanted to do the half! I replied via text that I wanted to stand on my own two feet and do something that matters!
Is it any wonder that I haven't run once since finding out the half wasn't going to happen? I need to for endorphins and weight control, it just seems pointless right now but the excuses have to end.
I guess it's not a total loss - I still have Hell!
