The last 2 weeks of my life have been a marathon. Scratch that. Harder than a marathon.
- Finding a cupcake in Manhattan.
- Vacationing with a vomiting toddler.
- Discovering 1/2 hour before you were to leave for a wedding that your husband did not pack the dress you intended to wear (even though you specifically asked him to pack it and only one other item).
- Discovering that the Express around the corner from your hotel does not sell dresses because, well, PANDA.
- Flying from New York City to Denver with a vomiting toddler.
- Flying from New York City to Denver with a vomiting toddler and a vomiting preschooler.
- Flying from New York City to Denver with a vomiting toddler and a vomiting preschooler, while vomiting yourself.
- Auditioning for Listen to Your Mother via FaceTime because your husband is out of town and everyone is still sick.
- Learning that you did not get into Listen to Your Mother.
- Dealing with your preschooler’s 1 millionth tantrum.
- Dealing with your preschooler’s 1 millionth tantrum alone because your husband is still out of town.
- Realizing that the stomach bug didn’t actually go away. It was just silently lurking for a few days, waiting for an opportune time to initiate your next spontaneous cleanse.
- Watching 4 kids aged 5 and under for 9 hours.
- Watching 4 kids aged 5 and under for 9 hours DURING THE CLEANSE.
- Not running at all because your body just can’t handle it.
This is real life friends. It’s harder than a marathon. Shit happens. In my case quite literally, as it turns out. But I got through it and I’m planning on a run this afternoon. Yoga tomorrow, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Shit happens. In my case quite literally, as it turns out. Click To Tweet
What’s your plan? Do you or someone you know need help building one? My bio says I’m not an elite runner. (I’m not.) But I do happen to have a lot of experience figuring out how to make running happen in the middle of real life. And I’m looking for 2 new Personal Run Coaching clients. Check out the FAQ or ask me a question if you’re kind of interested but not yet ready to commit.
