i an struggling this morning with tender feelings and jealousy. i was surprised again to see a good friend running a 5k in boise this morning that i didnt know she was doing. running has been hard. i have little freedom when it comes to when i can run and while i have several friends who run, non of them are close or dealing with the time constraints that i am. jason has been really good (especially in comparison to last sememster) about being home in the evenings so that i can run, but running in that heat and after a full day is so hard on me physically and mentally. it becomes a chore and i dont enjoy it. i would love the encouragement and time with a friend to do a race together, i know there are oodles of them in this area right now. it happens. i know that. im just feeling a little bit excluded.
last night i did 3 miles with weights on my walking dvd. the point of the amr challenge is to make a concentrated effort to get the exercize in. so while i had already been out taking care of weeds at the lots, and taking care of the garden here, i made the extra effort to set aside time specifically for exercize.
also, i do have a race of sorts coming up. friends of ours are adopting a little boy from etheopia and are running a 5k fundraiser on the july first. they are calling in the krohn family comassion 5k and participants of all ages are free to walk, bike, run, whatever they want to do. i am excited to support them and hear about their trip to meet nahome earlier this month.
but right now, im still just a little bummed.
