20 Weeks Out - I never expected it to be a walk in the park

Wow, 20 weeks from right now, I will have finished the first day of walking for the San Diego 3-Day for the Cure.  I'm excited about that, but I have a ways to go before I get there.

I'm trying to recapture the momentum I had before my plantar fascitis sidelined me.  My enthusiasm has flagged.  Even getting out to swim has been difficult for me.  I'm OK with being in this space right now.  This is part of the journey as much as the early excitement is.  I have no doubt that once my foot has recovered, once I have had a chance to catch my breath from the busy-ness of the end of the school year, that I will begin an upswing again. 

There may be other obstacles that I will face.  I say, bring it on!  I never expected this to be a walk a park.  I didn't know exactly what this year would bring for me, but I knew it would have ups and downs.  I'm keeping my eyes on where I want to go and working with where I am.  I'm so glad that I'm on this journey and so grateful for all of you who are my support and making it possible.


  1. Good for you! That's a very healthy attitude to have. We learn as much about ourselves during these hard times as we do when things are moving along easily.

  2. Kristen, thank you so much for your support! I totally agree that we learn a ton from facing trials as we move along this journey.
