My return to running has been so rocky and frustrating. Ups and downs and no linear path to being able to run long distances again.
I'm not sure if I will ever be able to again...
But today? Today I was able to run more than I've been able to run in a long time, and it felt so great.
I went to a treadmill class and had virtually no pain while running.
I felt so good. Proud, Happy. I haven't felt that high in a long time.
I usually go through life just barely doing okay and satisfied with that because I know it's so much better than the dark places I've been.
But today on the treadmill? Just so happy. Dancing. Having fun. Having a blast.
Sprinting as fast as I could sprint. Moving for 55 minutes straight.
I hope I have more days like this. I'm not sure if I will. I'm not sure if things will get worse again before they get better. But today was at least fun.
