Another Friday is upon us and as usual, I can hardly believe it! The days are passing by so quickly and while I’m crossing things off my to-do list as fast as possible, I’m also adding more just as quickly. We’re in the final couple weeks and trying to get all of the puzzle pieces in place. I’m still working part-time but thankfully Sam is no longer at her job and able to run around for us when I’m working.
But I must also admit being in the home stretch means there’s also been a lot of stress and near anxiety attacks at times. This whole thing is pushing me outside my comfort zone which is great but as such, I’m trying to get back into running to help my stress. After choosing to defer from the marathon a couple months ago, I let my running fall to the wayside. Honestly, I did it on purpose because I knew I needed it mentally and physically but now I’m feeling ready to bring it back. Not where I need to run 8+ miles every week, but where I’m running a few miles a few days a week in addition to CrossFit. So far this week, so good!

I’m thankful to have today off from work so Sam and I can go to CrossFit, run some errands and hopefully get a lot done!
