At the edge of the woods, at sunset.

I am finally feeling like I’m coming out of the woods. That were indeed dark, scary, and lost-feeling.
I’m super busy this week (OK, when am I NOT super busy? LOL) so can’t write in huge detail but things are going much better.
I think the emotional turmoil MAY be winding down. (cross fingers!)
I’ve had some very good workouts this week: my 7.5 mile run, then a 5k (3.2 mile) run, and a whup-ass trainer workout today that involved sliding around strenuously on some cardboard box tops. Very high tech, that guy. 🙂
I’m feeling confident that the marathon relay in less than two weeks is going to be DO-ABLE, and even a lot of FUN. Yay.
I think my solo performance show is going to also be good. I am excited about it. Did you know tickets are on sale? I hope to see some of your friendly faces there.
I’m way way way way way wayyyyyyyyyy too busy and overextended, but I’m happy with all of it.
OH and I had a lovely 4 point lunch just now: a spicy black bean burger (2 pt) on a multigrain sandwich thin (1 pt) topped with a dab of hummus (YUM, 1 pt). Very satifying and filling.
So, thanks everyone for the massive support and encouragement these past weeks. It’s been rough. It’s been tough. But I think we’re coming out of those woods.

Yay! I am glad to hear you are feeling like you are coming out of the woods. Even though the trees might have seemed huge and dense around you, WE (your friends that love you) never lost sight of you. If needed we would have jumped in there and saved you, but we also knew you would be fine making your way on your own!

So I saw an excellent performance artist today and I thought of you. Her name is Dale Allen and her site is http://www.inourrightminds.com She talked about how when we do things that are just for ourselves, we’re really doing them for others. Her one-woman show has really taken off and I bet yours will too because there’s such passion and intelligence behind it. Break a leg (show-wise, not running-wise 😉

Wow, she looks cool. I’d love to see her show!

I’m happy for you. Always nice when you feel like the troubles of the world are being lifted off your shoulders.

Um. Oops. Edited to fix that: I actually don’t think I did eat 2 pts worth of hummus. HA.

I so wish I could be there for your performance I would love to cheer you on in person!
Record it for sure.
Excited for your marathon relay, you will do great!!

So glad things are getting better. I’m trying to come up with a new way of expressing how amazed I am at how busy you can be and still pull it off. Thank goodness I am not judging myself by your standards of accomplishment!
Have fun in Costa Rica, I’ll be routing for you during the Oakland race, and I am looking forward to your solo performance.
