New Year.... New everything....

Well, I finally did it!  I put on my Nike's and bundled up for my first run of the year, and my first run since the beginning of December.  Wow!  I can't believe it has been that long.  But I felt really good considering.  I have a lot of races that I already want to sign up for this year, but I am going to be smart about getting back on track.

This year will be an interesting one for me.  I have been with my husband for over 12 years and we have been married for 6 years.  We have two beautiful three year old boys.  But now, things are about to get interesting.  Over the past year, we have realized that we are much better as friends.  Therefore, we came to the decision that we should separate.  I have gradually started telling family and friends and their reaction is, of course, shock.

So, here it is, a new year, and I'm looking toward the future with so many questions.  I wonder how my children will fare during this transitional phase.  I wonder how well my friendship with my soon-to-be ex-husband will hold up during this process.  I wonder what the future has in store for both of us.  I'm anxious about being a single mom, but I am excited at the same time.  I also hope for everything wonderful for him as well.

So as I look out into the bright blue yonder, I ponder my new life ahead of me.  I know that I will be stronger, physically and emotionally.  

Happy training everyone!
