Another day another dead πŸŸπŸ˜‚

Best way to start the morning: grateful yoga than confluence Pilates. @confluence_cycle_yoga

Snail mail is the best! This lovely card came in the mail from @crisispanty! Thank you for the ray of sunshine:)

When I sit down on the floor for a moment...she thinks that's her que to sit in my lap. πŸ™„πŸ¦Š

Seen on my run. A dead 🐟. Ha!
70 degrees with 68% humidity. I feel good. A little sore from yesterday's double workouts. Very happy to be breathing like normal people.

I've taken a month off of running to get back to MY basics. Every day has been worth it. I feel back to myself. I even went for my first run over the weekend. No watch. No plan. No idea what my distance or pace was. It was a whole new world. For the last 22 years I have always been training for something: triathlon, mountaineering, running, biking, paddling, whatever. For the first time in my life I don't have a plan. I like to have a plan. I've tried not having a plan. I'm not at my best without the structure. This is not in my head, it's a fact. I've tried it. Many times. After a while, usually a month or so it starts messing me up. I am trying to work on other things like strength and staying healthy. I've been rocking those out. I realized that the marathon Im no longer in training for is in 2 weeks. I find my resolve strong. I made the right decision and I feel excited about running again. I can even breathe in the humidity now. I'm looking forward to running this spring and summer. In the woods. Surrounded by things that tried to kill me the last two years. Maybe I will find a race I feel like training for and running before the year is up. Or not. Either way, I've learned that Comparison is crippling. It is important to only work on yourself, your own goals, your own health. If you don't take of yourself no one else will. That's not negativity, that's fact. I've been comparing myself to myself from pre-asthma blowout. I am not that person anymore nor will I be the same person in a few months from now. But I do plan on being better every day. I plan on being around for a long time kicking ass and taking namesπŸ˜‰πŸ‘πŸ‘ŠπŸ»πŸ™

Sunday vibes.

Spring is a time for new beginnings. Yesterday it was snowing, today the boat is in the water:) here's to a great season! βš“οΈπŸ›₯πŸ™πŸ‘ŠπŸ»πŸ‘πŸŒž

Not how I planned the morning but I still made it to yogaπŸ™πŸ‘ŠπŸ»πŸ˜Š

Always believe something wonderful is about to happen.

Never be afraid to start over. It's a chance to rebuild your life the way you wanted all along.
This morning during my morning yoga practice at @confluence_cycle_yoga I was reminded of this when a fellow student asked how many weeks left until my marathon. I laughed and said, I decided not to run that race right now. She was surprised because she has been aware of my training from the earliest miles all the way through 20 miles a few weeks ago. She looked at me and said, that sounds like a tough decision. I'm glad you chose to listen to your body. I smiles and said, yep, and when I am ready I will run again. πŸ˜‰πŸ‘ŠπŸ»β€πŸ™

Stop trying to figure everything out. Give in. Give up. Give all to the moment's embrace. Fall into not knowing...
