Day 5 – Let Go. What (or whom) did you let go of this year? Why? (Author: Alice Bradley)

This sounds rather shallow.  I lost the opportunity to run a marathon.  I wanted to run one marathon.  Not more than one, mind you.  After completing a handful of half-marathons I wanted to run one full marathon but that is not to be.  Even though it doesn’t compare to the loss others are experiencing it is still a loss…

  • Loss of a dream
  • Claiming the reality that my body won’t always do what I want it to do

I’m still working on letting this dream go.  I’ll be at DisneyWorld in January to cheer on my friend (who I talked into this adventure!) and hopefully bring some closure to this loss. 

Damn.  I really wanted that medal!
