I’ve been laying low as of late. I’ve had a whole cluster of sudden-onset migraines and three migraines that have left me mostly blind in a pool of cold sweat on the bathroom floor. It sucks. I’m frustrated because i feel like “Hey! I just ran a marathon, i should be super healthy.” But, it is what it is and i’m trying to figure out what is triggering all of this (aside from work stress.)
I took three weeks off running and am now back in the game with a registration for the Victoria Marathon in October signed and sealed. It’s got a great jacket for participants that i couldn’t say no to. Honestly though, i love the commitment to a schedule and a goal. I love running, but you already know that.
Tristan turned fifteen a few days ago and Toby is thirteen on saturday. Holy cats, how did that happen? They are as amazing as they ever were. I adore them to no end. Tristan has put us through a bit of parental struggles this year with first everythings. I’ve had more than a few hairs turn grey and spent many hours worrying about her, but at the end of the day she is an amazing young woman. She finished grade nine and half of grade ten this year, with straight A’s to boot. She is a caring and compassionate friend, sensitive and confidant, funny and adorable all rolled into my daughter who is now the same size as me and steals all my clothes. Life, it comes full circle. I am honestly in awe that i had anything to do with the raising of this amazing young woman.
We are all good. Life is free from drama. Life is good, it rolls along and i with it.
