I am utterly exhausted - more so than I think I have ever been in my life. I am working a lot of hours and also running every waking moment (maybe I exaggerate, but not by much).
I sat down to write earlier and just couldn't do it. So, I thought I would just post to explain my basic absence. Hopefully I can post something thoughtful this weekend. I need some serious rest.
Tomorrow - 18 miles, followed by baby shower for tiny unborn granddaughter. Then I am free for a couple of hours. I am looking forward to that.
The local Catholic newspaper had an article about running a marathon (of all things!) this week - which I just read tonight. Apparently Pope John Paul II believed that sports provided an ideal training ground for faithfulness by building good habits. A local runner added "faithfulness in small things like running can lead to faithfulness in larger things..."
I know that as a sober woman it is important for me to honor my commitments, even if they were "only" to myself.
This might be the most ambitious one I have come up with thus far - and it has lots of competition.
Thank you for your indulgence. And say a prayer for me if you are so inclined.
