Taking a Break

First, I want to thank you all for your kind words. I've been in this boat before, and I know I'll be fine in the very near future. It's more that it's just one of those things that always gets me down, and it's so much more because of being tired of being alone more so than the actual guy right now. I have to be sad for a bit before I can bounce back and be ok. My feelings are hurt, and I can't shake that off right away.

So I'm sorry for being kind of dark lately, but I promise that will clear up in time.

Meanwhile, I'm not going to write a race report about the Frostbite Half I ran on the 13th. I used it as a training run, and I finished in 2:02. I was pleased. And then I haven't run since. I'm just not there mentally. I'll get my groove back there as well, but for now I'm not being too hard on myself about it.

In other news that I haven't shared yet, I'm no longer unemployed. I start a new job on Monday. I don't feel like I should share much about it, but I know that it's more than likely going to be a great thing for me to be doing. I've enjoyed this time of unemployment, and I'm thankful for the opportunities I've had. I won't lie... it's hard to give up all of this free time, and having to adapt to this big of a change when my heart is a bit heavy is something that is quite hard for me. But I know it'll all turn out...

Anyways, this is a jumbled post. I don't know when I'll run again. I don't know when I'll post again. I think I need a few days to just enjoy the end of the time of not working. I need a few days to try to finish shaking off this silly boy stuff. I need time to readjust to my new schedule and routine. So maybe I'll be back soon, and maybe I won't. We'll see.

I'll be reading your blogs in the meantime (it's a great distraction from the millions of thoughts in my head right now), but I can't promise to comment a ton.

I hope things turn around! I totally understand you not wanting to share much about your job, but I am curious if it is with a non-profit?

Good luck on your first day!

I agree with Jocelyn! You're awesome and do whatever you need to do to be a-okay. :)

Getting back to work will make it easier to reorient yourself out of your current situation. It might seem tough at first but this could be a great change!

it's so hard to see you down, woman! you're such a positive, motivation person! time away is exactly what you need. when it rains it pours, so i'm sure it won't be long before you're feeling like normal!

one word of advice: check your horoscope! i do that when i'm down in the dumps, and sometimes a gloomy astrology forecast is helpful, as it makes me realize my mom and the madness is out of my control!
