It has been over a month since I last posted. For any readers still out there, I appreciate your patience.
The last few weeks have been incredibly hard on me. I am going through some personal things that are causing me a lot of pain. It is not medical or life threatening. It is a matter of heartbreak, loss, and changing relationships. I will not go into the details on this blog because that is not what this space is meant to be and because I am not comfortable sharing the details of something so personal with anyone who comes across my corner of the internet. I do appreciate your thoughts and prayers as I work my way through this trying and difficult time.
I will be posting (hopefully) regularly again as my time and emotions allow but please bear with me. My optimism and motivation have been failing me lately. There are times when harsh, cold waves of depression and sadness envelop me. I let these feelings come rather than push them away. I need to feel them and deal with them so hopefully in the future I can move on.
2012 will be different (and so much harder) than I ever expected. But I still have several goals I want to accomplish in 2012. There are races I’ve signed up for already and ones for which I hope to register. I’ll share more of these goals and my progress to them later.
For now, thank you for reading and I hope 2012 is being kind to you.
