|After my first half marathon|
Each day is only 24 hours. To a preschooler 24 seems like a huge number but when I look at all I need to do in a day, it seems so little especially with my recent desire to aim to really get 8 hours of sleep (and no, I really am not succeeding with this yet). Wow, now I am down to 16 hours in a day. Add 8 hours of work and now I am left with a measly 8 hours to get to and from work, to run, to blog, to shower, to do chores, to cook, to plan and make lunches, to be with family and friends, to chat on the phone with family, and to try to squeeze in quality time with dear hubby.

Some may question how I can choose to run so much, and everyday, if she is my priority. Simply stated....running gives me the me time, the stress relief, the connection I need to my spirituality to be a better me, a calmer me, a more loving and compassionate mom. I need to be healthy and strong in order to do the most important job - to be a loving, caring, nurturing mom.

So what this all boils down to is this....I blog to share my story, to find inspiration, and perhaps inspire others. I have felt that slight negative pull others have blogged about. To do another product review, to do another giveaway, to enter another giveaway, to do whatever it may be at the moment. I am mainly writing about this since I want to say to each one of you that I don't follow your blog because you do x, y, or z but because I love reading your stories that come from your heart and to let my readers know that will continue to be my goal. And although I am to blog daily, if I don't have a good story to share, or the time to share the good story, it will just need to wait. And I truly expect you to all do the same.

P.S. And I guess today I just needed to give myself and pep talk reminding me that being me is just fine. Happy Friday and have a wonderful weekend!
Who's watching the running today on the Olympics? I am! But will need to tape it as I made plans to go to a friend's house for a big get together with family and friends.
