I Miss Running

I had dinner with two of my close friends this evening we call it The Ladies of The Round Table. Susan of course is one of them and our friend Ashley whom I met through Susan is the other. I’ve had some things on my mind the last few weeks that I haven’t talked about with anyone including them. It’s been awhile since the Ladies of The Round Table had gotten together so I called a meeting. We met at Pies and Pints, had appetizers, they had wine and beer, I only and water with lemon I wasn’t feeling any alcohol tonight. We each ordered our pizza, I had the Margherita pizza, delicious!! (Sorry no pictures) We caught up on what was going with each other work, family, back issues, the new Wonder Woman movie (can’t wait!), steer clear of politics (HA!!!!) but we ate and laughed it was a nice evening but I didn’t talk about what had been on my mind. I couldn’t bring it up. Not exactly sure why. What I did realize is how much I miss running. I did another yoga class last night it helped but this time I was just a little sore. Which could just be from my body getting use to movement again. But when I ran I could clear my head, sort things out, process stuff. Now that the weather is nice I’m really missing running a lot. It also doesn’t help I’m getting the count down emails to the Greenbrier Half-Marathon on May 20th which I registered for in the fall, that I’m obviously not going to be participating.

The long and the short of it I miss running…

I was born and raised in WV. I live in Charleston, WV. I graduated with my Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Charleston and from Marshall University Graduate College with my Master’s Degree. I’m a Licensed Professional Counselor and a Certified Advanced Alcohol and Drug Counselor. I have been in the field of mental health and substance abuse for about 26 years. I started running about two years ago by beginning a running program to help me prepare for my first 5k. I had wanted to run a 5k for years but never got around to doing it. Two years ago there was an event that happened which sent me on an emotional rollercoaster; starting this program was a way to get off that rollercoaster. Once I finished that first 5k I got the running bug and haven't stopped running since.

  1. And I miss seeing your smile at the races! It was obvious that you were enjoying it more all the time. Stay the course with your yoga and pain management treatments so that you will be out there again before years end. Hugs..

  2. I hear ya! I’ve had some Achilles/ankle trouble since my 10 miler a couple of weeks ago. It’s just now calmed down but I had to pull out of a half marathon I had registered for. I just finished a week off work but it rained almost every day I was off, the sky was grey and the winds were in the upper teens to 20 mph range. I wanted to walk or maybe run a little but the weather was as bad as I felt. Running is a balm to the spirit! I miss it like a long lost lover when it’s gone from my life. I SO understand how you feel! I really hope you’re better soon.
