Roll With The Punches

30 Day Blogging Challenge #30

Day thirty. Wow,  I made it without missing a single day! Want to know something funny though?  I almost couldn’t find the time to post today, LOL, but then it hit me that I can’t end like that.  Who ends like that? NOBODY.  That’s taking a huge L.  So here I am: fingers typing faster than I have ever seen them while simultaneously  shoveling chicken and roasted potatoes into my mouth.  It’s a good time, it really is.

BLOG + POTATOES + CHICKEN = IMPOSSIBLE TO BE NEGATIVE #AMIRIGHT

Here is my status right now, besides the chicken and potatoes, I have my very first marathon in Philly in 3 days, I woke up with an awful cold :/ , and my IT band is acting up.

I’m pretty nervous and a little upset but I don’t want to let that get in my way.  I’ve trained for 18 weeks, a little cold and slight irritation in my knee can’t stop me now.  Sure, I wish the cold could have come a week earlier, but it didn’t.  My knee could chill the f!ck out, but it’s not.

Sh!t happens, it does, that is life.  You have to roll with the punches.  

Most of you know, from reading my story, that the one thing I believe over everything is is that everything happens for a reason. No matter how bad something may seem in the moment, no matter how hard it may be to see the reasoning for something– I promise that it is there.

With every hurdle thrown into your path, you are presented with a choice.  Let it knock you down, or build up an extra bit of energy and hop right over it.  

Hopping over it is what I am choosing to do this Sunday.  I will run that course no matter what.  No, actually I will finish that course no matter what.  Me getting upset and frustrated  will just make it ten times harder on myself, so I choose to not do that.

You have the same choices, and I challenge you to jump.   Jump right into whatever you do.  Because when you let hesitation and ill feelings hold you back, you are missing part of the experience and opportunity.


Even though my challenge is over, I have fallen in love with the hobby of blogging, so don’t forget to keep checking back.  Especially soon for a marathon recap!
