It makes me sad to have to write this posting
Was this meant to be supportive?
Where in life is it ever okay to kick someone when they are down?
To Mr or Mrs Anonymous this is what I have to tell you...
I am not a professional runner. I am a normal gal that thinks life is best lived through big dreams.
Today my marathon was far from perfect, but when things took a major turn for worse I still pressed on. Mentally I was on it today, but physically A LOT of problems arose which I have never dealt with in the past. It was nearly impossible for my mind to overpower a body that was not working properly.
This does not make me someone who gives up and waves a white flag of surrender when things get tough. It is just simply how things go sometimes because the desires of our heart do not always match up with God's plan, and I am a-okay with that BECAUSE I AM NOT PERFECT. I fail, I fall down, I screw up, and sometimes it takes longer for me to achieve my goals then I want.
The best part of racing for me isn't always the finishing time, you may know this if you read my last posting carefully. PR's are great and feeling like you are of fire during a race is truly a special experience, but if you are a runner yourself you should know that these days do not come frequently. I think that I have had my share of great races this year, and I treasure all of those memories dearly. One race
So I'm sorry if my race didn't fit into your picture perfect scenario, but life rarely does friend. There will always be another race, another opportunity, and someone like you who finds it difficult to be respectful of anothers situation.
If you are truly interested in the painful madness I endured this morning and would like to identify yourself and actually engage in an adult exchange of information, then I would encourage and welcome you to visit my contact me page and send me an email. The anonymity of your comment is silly and if you really would like to know what happened today I will gladly and kindly share.
Final and most important point...
while this blog is posting for anyone to read, it is not a place for negative energy. This is a positive place to share and connect. If you do not like this rule, then do not read this blog.
