Week 5, Day 3
I was going to write a post today about the weather, and how that cold front could come through ANY TIME NOW, because I really don’t know if I can take one more day where it feels like I’m running through oatmeal.
But I can’t. I can’t complain today. I tell myself a lot that I shouldn’t complain at all, that running is not as hard as cancer, and that’s true.
But today? A day when everyone is remembering where they were and what they were doing 13 years ago? (In the process of leaving my ex-husband when my dad called to tell me to turn on the news, strangely enough. It was a very bad day in a lot of ways.) Today is definitely not a day to complain.
So today I’ll run, and I’ll be thankful for our heroes, of all types. Cancer survivors, police officers, fire fighters, soldiers. Thanks to all of you for doing the hard work while the rest of us focus on stupid things like the weather.
