Almost to a 5K Walking Point


So I walked/ran/jogged for 2.53 miles today. This is AWESOME! I ran, some may call it jogging, for .5 of that. My longest stretch yet. Now, for the disclaimer. *I did not, however, run that consecutively. I am of the mind that I will soon. If Molly Ringwald can start running at 41, after giving birth to twins, then surely I can run a 5K. It’s an amazing journey. It’s truly miraculous in my case, as I have chosen to train for something I have always wanted to do AFTER receiving a diagnosis; but I guess that’s how it goes for a lot of folks. You don’t really go after what you want until your chance may be disintegrating before your very eyes. I have pain in my legs and a lot in my knees, but I am drinking a glucosamine shake of sorts after my session. I wanna be a runner so badly I can feel the shin splints now!! I find myself wondering how much of the pain is CFS and how much is “typical,” but I think that’s why I like it. I’m doing something to CAUSE the pain. It’s not just there for no reason that even the doctors can’t explain.


About chronicchristian

I am a mother of 2 children who I realized not long ago I can't call "toddlers" anymore, married to the best man in the world for 12 years and chasing after what God wants for my life. I currently deal with some symptoms and have for the past 9 years, that resemble an autoimmune illness. Currently my own body is attacking my thyroid (seems it could find something better to do) and the doctors I've seen are at a loss as to what the plan might be. I believe God has the very best plan and that He is doing something awesome and she who guards her lips guards her life. This blog is good therapy. Maybe not for you, but definitely for me. God is good and I intend to prove it.
