I seldom end up where I wanted to go, but almost always end up where I needed to be. (Douglas Adams)
Triathlon? Me? Hah. No way. I don’t want to go there. I can’t go there.
Once I was all, “Runner? Me? Hah. No way. I don’t want to go there. I can’t go there.”
Once I was all, “Long distance relationships? Me? Hah. I’m done with that shit. It never ends well.”
Why not do something that scares you? Something you didn’t think you could do? Maybe it’ll end up being exactly what you were missing in your life. I can hardly imagine my life without running. I can’t imagine my life at all without Karl and the seven months of long-distance dating we went through before he moved down here. I may not have done the things I thought I would or taken the paths I imagined, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. How is it that facing your fears usually ends up being fun, empowering, amazing?

This is encouraging. 🙂
Your Momma is so very proud of you!
You are my hero! My writing scares the shit out of me, but I am now coming to terms with that and pushing beyond the fear and so far the outcome as been positive. But I also have been coming out of my shell more in being who I truly am and thats been fun because it allows me to accept people. It allows me to hangout with you and karl and ig buddies and really connect with people instead of keeping everyone really far away even though they think we are really close.
