I can finally breathe. I feel like someone has literally cut strings on a corset and the crushing feeling around my chest has loosened up.
My husband accepted a job yesterday. It is a great job that pays more than what he was making before. Not only is it a good opportunity for him, but it allows me to potentially start a business in fitness rather than rejoining the corporate jungle. We still have an uphill road ahead of us-- paying credit cards, savings etc. and moving two hours away. However, that uphill road is just a hill after a long run rather than the downward spiral we were feeling only weeks ago.
My running is probably going to be put on a back burner as soon as this half marathon is over. Kenny will be working a lot and probably staying up in Orange County most of the time. It doesn't leave a lot of Mommy Time. I'll be packing up a house, finding renters and trying to figure out what kindergarten my five-year-old will attend. But it is all good.
Thanks for all your support out there in blogland. I have been very touched by all the encouraging comments, offers of sponsorships of races and even plane tickets! This blog has really helped me focus on positive aspects of my life (although I know that I also used to to whine sometimes). I am on to a new chapter of my life and excited to see what comes next.
