I know it has been a while since I’ve posted, but things are going well! I have been running! I am feeling so much better, and I am so grateful for it!  Last Sunday I decided to go for a long run and ended up going 8 miles. I felt awesome! The run itself wasn’t hard for me and I actually enjoyed every minute of it. I felt so lucky to be able to get outside and enjoy the day. The whole run had a euphoric feel to it. Everything just seemed to go right. The weather was perfect. The breeze was just enough to keep me cool. Scenery was gorgeous!

There is a lake near my house that I love running by. All around the lake there are woods and many times the branches or hang down over the road. The other day when I was running a breeze gently lifted a bunch of grapevines and I was able to run right under them. It was peaceful. It was like Mother Nature was helping me on my run.

Once I was back in my neighborhood, I was running up the last little hill  and there are woods on both sides of the road.  I was looking at my phone to see how close I was to 8 miles and when I looked up a mama Deer and her two precious babies jumped out of the woods and ran in front of me. They were so close I could have probably touched them. They were so beautiful! I just felt so lucky to have been able to experience that. I love nature and everything about it. 

At that moment I just felt a feeling like things are going to be ok. Like the worst is over and I can live the life I once had and loved.

What are you favorite things about running?
