Candy Hangover? #TheRunningWriter

Happy November, my friends. Anyone suffering from a candy hangover? I’m looking forward to a great month. Getting back on the trails after foot surgery, enjoying the cooler weather, and writing more. I got the all clear from Doc to start biking, and while I’m not a huge fan of the stationary bike, I was all like, “YES! I’ll take it.” It’s amazing what you appreciate after some forced down time.

I’m used to running 30-40 miles per week  I’m used to spending hours out on the trails, frolicking amongst the wildlife, watching sunrises, and bonding with my Trail Sisters. I knew I loved it, but I never realize just how much until I have to step away from it for a while.  Right now, as I sit on my patio watching the sun rise over the hills I’m normally running, I asked my myself, “How will I make it through the next couple of months?”   It’s a fair question for anyone faced[…]
