Excuse me while I have a moment

I don't like running by myself. It's, well frankly hard. Anyway since I am training for just the half still, I have to run alone the long runs. Tara is still working on getting better. Anyway I had to run 9 miles today. I didn't want to do it. I had to drive the route first it was to be 4.5 miles there and then 4.5 back. Man that was the longest 4.5 miles even in the car. When I finally made the first 4.5 miles there I was feeling pretty good, my knees felt great and I was happy I finished the first half of the run. I started out for the next half without my ipod on my ears. I think it just made me tired because I could hear my breathing. So I put it back on and started thinking. Usually I only think about finishing the run and I think about the run. I made myself think of other things. The more you think of other things the faster the run goes. I have a song on my ipod called Finally by Fergie. It's a slow song. Usually I won't have a slow song on my ipod because I think that's just dumb. But I love this song. It makes me think of my life. I thought of how grateful I am to be where I am today. I have my problems believe me ( you can ask my husband). But I really am blessed to have what I have in my life. I've come a long way baby. For those of you who knew me way back when. Don't you think? Well I have a family now, a great family. I am grateful for my Heavenly father for loving me enough to give me my family. He really has looked out for me and blessed me tremendously. I will tell you that I love my brothers and sisters and mom and dad even more now than I ever have. I am away from them so it's easier to miss them but when we all get together its so fun and I know they feel it too. I am grateful to my mom , I call her everyday sometimes twice a day. She listens and laughs at everything I have to say. My in laws are in town right now. I know I couldn't of married into a better family. I truly love them and all they do for us. Getting together with that half of my family is just as great as mine and I'm thankful for them. I am grateful where we are in our lives. Don't worry I'm not gonna die soon I just wanted to write my feelings down while I had them. Sometimes I get so caught up in my busy life that I don't sit back and think of how blessed I truly am. Maybe this will help you think about your life and realize that its not so bad. Anyway back to my run. I finished the 9 miles and even though I knew there were other people around I threw my arms into the air and yelled. I was happy and I didn't care who knew it.
