I just realized that it's been a month since I last wrote anything... life has been busy and lots of major life changes to be going thru. I have also kept quiet a bit too as the news has been depressing. I am not going to get into a debate about my feelings and opinions towards everything that has been going on. I am only going to say why can't we spread PEACE!! Just one simple world that translates into all religions, demographics and just over all well being. You can be the most miserable person on the planet and not want to love yourself or others but you can help spread PEACE! I have seen so much hate being spread among friends and family members on social media and I won't be swept in it. Just be at peace with yourself and help be peaceful with others. Show more empathy and help each other out. That's it and all I want to say.
So many things have been going on in my life since I got back from Seattle. SOOOOO many changes as well. But I am excited and more open and ready for new challenges and experiences in 2016. I am scared don't get me wrong as I want to succeed and be successful but I also know it will have it's ups and downs and that part doesn't scare me anymore like it used to. I am slowly starting to realize why I was put on this planet and the gifts that I have and how I am to help those around me. As time goes on things just get better and better.... just like that song "Everything is Awesome"!
So this month has been busy to start with and I ran two 5km races with friends in less then 24hrs for two different charities. Not only was it so much fun with my new friends but it was even better getting to run them with my awesome Son. I love how he joins me and we can do these things together. What is also cool is how he is getting some of his friends into this fitness world too and race with him. I am really excited to run a half marathon with Ty and his friend in May. Will be a great time. So these races that I did this past weekend were fun. It started with a 5km around Spruce Meadows at night and getting to see their amazing Christmas light display. Then the next morning we ran in downtown Calgary for the Santa Shuffle. We had amazing weather. I attended my last Company Christmas Party that night and got to look all girly and wear heels. I even danced most of the night and had no klutzy accidents. Was a great time with a good friend of mine as my fake date and I needed at fun night like that even though it started a little on the poopy side. It all worked out and I am proud I can turn it around and not let it bother me or ruin my night. I am pretty proud of how much I have come along in this journey.
My son and I are doing our possibly last race next weekend on the 19th with friends for another good cause. Reason why I say possibly last race is that I am still contemplating the Resolution run New Years eve due to lack of other events to attend. Why not do something I love with the people I love to race and hang out with. We will be running 5k for Noah on his 5th Birthday that passed away last month. Our fellow Canadian Mudd Queens son had severe cerebral palsy and you can read her amazing story here: http://spartanrace.ca/latest-news/olivia-greenham-why-i-race/?lang=en so we are running this for him and her.
I am really looking forward to getting away for three days to the mountains with just my son for a much needed recharge get away. Can't wait to snowshoe and have some fun. The Dream Team will have some new adventures.
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.
