I'm running, and tapering, and I've just been through an experience that has sort of knocked me for a loop, a complicated loss involving someone who has touched my life in more ways than I ever comprehended, and grief hits you in strange ways.
Running has been my solace, I feel best when I get out for a gentle run and I'm able to process the feelings and thoughts without having to work at it. They just roll through and over me like big waves at the beach, sort of like I'm surfing through my run, and I try not to sob and run because hyperventilating is not a good thing! I'm trying not to drown in the salt water tears at times. At least there are no sharks or crocodiles.
I am taking good care of myself in all ways and I am also looking forward to some emotional closure after her funeral, which is this Thursday.
