Day 40: May 7, 2013- Control issues

on May 7, 2013

Day 40: 8.57 miles today, Miles to go: 705.89- 2 miles this morning, 4 mile walk this afternoon, followed by another 2 miles after the rain let up tonight. Am nearly finished with my research paper, which is a huge relief, and again, I just wanted to note how big of a stress reliever running and walking can be. Midway through my afternoon walk, I got a call that my mom was in the hospital. I don’t know about you, but I don’t like the things in my life that are outside of my control. What I have come to realize, though, is that I do better focusing on the things that are in my control. Walking is in my control. It is something that I chose to do, how long to do it, and when. So I ended the call with my little sis and kept putting one foot in front of the other. I knew I couldn’t do anything until we had more information, so I let my brain focus on the simple task of human motion. It’s now evening, and mom has been admitted overnight. They have ruled out a heart attack, and she is meeting with the heart doctors in the a.m. I’ll post more tomorrow night when I know more. Thank you for your time in reading tonight and keep up the great work for those of you also getting out there this spring!
