You guys rock my socks off.
Thank you so much for all of the encouraging words you left on my last post. I’m actually really excited to be lacing up my running shoes again, and it feels great to be able to share this chapter of my recovery with you guys — I’ll be sure to keep you updated on how things are going.
For now, I’m taking things easy and avoiding any kind of plan or schedule. I went out for a quick walk/run yesterday morning, but again… I have no idea how far or how fast. Numbers are something that I’m not sure will serve me well at this point, so the Garmin stays at home for now. And speaking of home… how many decorative pumpkins would be too many decorative pumpkins?
I’m always tempted to buy ALL the pumpkins whenever I see them at the store/market, which the rational side of my brain tells me is probably a bad idea… I don’t even have a front step to put them on, so they 3 I do have are hanging around my home in random places. But enough rambling… today isn’t about running or pumpkins — it’s about sharing the link love!
