Well what can I say 2013 has been an interesting one to say the least and will be one of the most memorable one yet for both good and bad. Its been a year of growth and change for the best... Seeing how strong I can be and finally knowing how strong I really am. It was a year of loss and struggle. It made me aware of who my true friends are and brought me closer to my family. Made my son and I closer then we ever have been and opened that door of communication even more. I got to end the year off seeing the world open up new opportunities to me as well brought an amazing new person into my life that has also shown me and supported me that I can do things.
Now that we've almost completed one month into the new year I have never been more excited for things in a very long time. This year will be a year of different challenges and feats to accomplish but one I am enjoying and can't wait for. Lots will be physically but also emotionally too. I am excited to see how far I can push myself to try these new things. I think that's how I am feeling these days... So many cool things I am looking for and I guess I want to do it all right now. I am learning patients but that has never been my strong suit. Lol
I am learning to try to be more positive and to stop being stuck in my old ways. I don't like that and some days I feel stuck once I get into a negative place. I have a hard time getting out. My boyfriend has be patient with me but at times I feel like I keep trying to push him away. Part of me feels like I don't deserve to be this happy and it's so new to me to have someone who is so supportive and positive in my life. One that will take small steps to realize that I do deserve this. In the meantime I hope I don't.
Also on my goals for this year is to update this blog more frequently... I have been a little slack on that part but my life got busy for the good. I was given an opportunity to work full time doing what I love back in the IT field. So I was struggling getting back into working full time, spending time with my son/boyfriend and keeping up on the training. I feel like now life is falling into place a little more and I am able to keep my head afloat rather then feeling like I am sinking.
So what have I been up to... I have been taking a personal training course that I still need to write the exam for, started a 6 month Triathlon training with a group of 6 others. I have signed up for multiple races for the year, started a full time job and finally got things somewhat organize. I am happy my son wants to complete 4 races with me this year including a kids triathlon.
Racing season for me starts in March with a 10km snowshoe fun run in Lake Louise AB my son is going to do the 2 km one that day. Then it's 2 Spartans races a super and a sprint, smaller triathlon if I can get into it, color me RAD again with my son, a half marathon, then Mud Hero again with my group, Olympic Distance Triathlon and ending with attempting the Spartan Beast. Here's hoping I can get all done without too much troubles with my asthma. I want to try to get a couple other races in there but not sure how my lungs or body will be feeling so I may have to register last minute if I feel up to it.
I am looking forward to trying these and seeing where life takes me.
Until next time....
I am a single mom with one son that has been living with asthma since I was 2yrs old. I also almost died three times due to severe asthma attacks! I don't let my asthma stop me from accomplishing new goals and living life to the fullest.
