Off the wagon.

Well, at this point it’d be pretty safe to say that I’ve fallen off the wagon. I’m sure y’all have suspected as much. I mean, it’s not exactly hard to see that it fell apart.

But to answer the question I’m sure is floating out there somewhere: No, I’m not giving up.

I’m going to be a runner.

I’m disappointed with how things played out when sickness caught me after mere weeks of training. My current lack of running certainly can’t still be blamed on sickness. I guess it could be blamed on lots of things, but it doesn’t really matter. What matters is that I stopped, and I need to start again. I know for certain that I will start again. I do not know for certain when that will happen. I hope very much that it will be soon, but I haven’t had the heart for it yet. Life has been kicking me around a bit lately, and I need to recover from that and get back on the road.

Still, to be clear, I’m not giving up running. I’m not shutting this blog down. I just wanted to catch everyone up with where I’m at at the moment, and let you know that I’ll be pickin’ myself up again.

In a bit.

    We’ll be here! Waiting with bated breath to share all our enthusiasm, advice, feedback and support! Til then, don’t feel guilty…just work on finding your mojo, feeling inspired and putting one foot in front of the other. (and remember, you will almost always regret missing a chance to go running but rarely will you ever regret getting out there and doing it).

    Keep going Lafe. You have something a lot of people don’t have – a terrific support network!

    I know how you feel. I’ve got plenty of bruises to attest to how many times I’ve fallen off the wagon.
    But it’s good to hear that you plan to climb back on. We’ll be waiting!

  4. You’ll do it! That hardest part it walking out the door. Good luck! Don’t give up.

    Good deal Lafe, glad to see you! I hope life somewhat aligns itself for you soon – but don’t get hung up on waiting for “the perfect moment” to start a running routine again. Any time spent in motion is good time spent and you will probably feel great for it. We’ll be here to hear about it!!

    I was in a running rut for a while but Dianna gave me some great advice, “The next time you get the urge to un-lace your shoes (and getting them ON is half the battle)…try this…head out in one direction for 10 minutes. If after 10 minutes, you’re still not feeling the running-love, then turn around and head home. Worst thing: you just ran for 20 minutes. Best thing: you will probably keep going.”
