This go-around, surgery was twice as easy and recovery has been twice as good! I wonder if it's the fact that he removed less scar tissue on my left than my right, or just that I knew exactly what to expect and I'm an old pro? Either way, I'm grateful for the smooth, stress-free experience I've had with round two.
Look at the Edible Arrangements bouquet Abbey got me!? She knows me SO well :-). Her card was absolutely perfect, too:
That's exactly what I want to do!
I've held it together pretty well considering everything that has gone on over the past year, but I have had my moments. One of those was last night. I came to the hard realization that the KDF half/full marathon were both this weekend. That means that it has been 51 weeks since I've run a race. Y'all know me, Miss “I have four races on my calendar this month.” Miss “I'm going to squeeze in Sally's 5K before work today, because I wouldn't miss it!” For some reason, it hit me right in the gut tonight that it's almost been a year since I stopped running. I shed a tear or two, and now I'm moving forward. I share this with you guys, because I'm human and imperfect, and quite honestly wouldn't be normal if I always held myself together. I know one thing for sure: I will not take running or my health for granted AGAIN.
Thursday night, I decided it would be a great and fun idea to do a juice cleanse from Nékter.
