Ever since my totally every so amazing 4 mile run on Tuesday; one in which I ran under a 10 minute mile average pace in which I hadn't done in along time, my world seemed to fall apart and the negativity started. I know what the triggers were and now I'm a bit embarrassed about. Now I'm out of that negativity thing that lasted the last part of Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. I'm finally putting things back into perspective. I had posted some things on social media; which concerned a bunch of friends and it makes me feel terrible I ever did that. I finally reached out to who I needed to and things are getting better.

Sometimes you never know who will walk into your life and how much it will end up affecting you. I have to say how lucky I am that I found a friend in Moira. The affect she has had on me is something that is very hard to explain. Friends are there when you need it most; and well Moira has been there when I’ve needed her most. I am grateful and thankful for her. Unfortunately I found out sometime ago that Moira is about to battle the greatest battle of her life... Breast Cancer. Come Tuesday Moira will start her first round of chemo. If you ask me; well don't because it brings tears to my eyes and I cry to think and hear and say that of all people... this my friends is happening to Moira.

I am finally signed up all my races for the 2017 Marathon and Triathlon Season. Now I can really get into the business of training and being race ready.

Let's just say I had a very rough weekend. Alongside my training not going well, EVERYONE I know had success. One girl I know from the Women for Tri group on Facebook group ran a stellar marathon in Myrtle Beach and came in second overall for the girls. One of my good friends that used to swim with year round and in high school in the Dallas area got Rookie of the Year in her triathlon club. On the other hand, things went wrong and I completely gave up and bailed on a long run. It wasn't that I couldn't do it physically, but mentally I wasn't sure how to bounce back after my fall two weekends ago.

That sums up today's long run. I wanted to run between 12 and 14 miles in preparation for the New Jersey Marathon on April 30th. Since my fall two weekends ago, I thought I had the strength physically and mentally to do the long run. I didn't. I ended up doing only 2 miles this morning. I'm NOT happy at all. I can only put it past me, regroup, and run Monday when it's a brand new week. Even with the flaws and setbacks in this training cycle for New Jersey, I am hoping to get under 5 hours. I'm trying not to put pressure on myself but for once I'd like to be proud of me and I want others to be proud of me.

Since my clumsy yet graceful fall running on Saturday February 18, I am now back to running. Honestly, I was scared to try and run again. I was concerned that my fall caused an injury and that the New Jersey Marathon on April 30th would be erased from my race schedule for this year.

Been so many weeks since I have blogged last that I really need to right now. So much has been going on in my training that I want to share. I am going to start off by saying I'm proud of myself for what has happened since Saturday.
