highs and lows
Day 17 of the 30 day challenge is to discuss the highs and lows of this past year. I can honestly say that last year  was not a very good year. At all. So let’s get to it:
The Lows: (I would rather disucss these first and then end on a high note)
- I had a bursa sac develop in my left knee that caused me to drop out of the NYC Marathon that I had trained to so hard to qualify for. I had the bursa sac drained yet that knee still plagues me with on again/off again pain.
- I had a horrendous kitchen accent and chopped my left pinky 95% off. I had extensive surgery and lots of physical therapy. I had another blog, Healthy Living With Kelly, that I had to end it because I was one handed for many months.
- Those 2 incidents caused me to lose myself completely. I was so depressed. I had gone from being a really good runner to someone who couldn’t even tie her own shoes or take a shower alone. I had no use of my left hand for months and I was so broken and truth be told I am still healing.
I learned a lot about myself and what I thought was important. I learned that there is a lot more to me than just being a marathoner.
My relationship with Keith deepened even more so than I thought it could. I had to lean on him and trust him more than I had ever allowed myself to.
Keith and I took an amazing vacation to The Grand Canyon and I felt like I was looking at God’s creation firsthand.
I started this blog as a way to break away from what I thought blogging should be like. I looked at this as my second chance to be real.
I turned 30 and I am embracing it.
