What did I feel while standing amidst the trees with no one else around, watching the sun go down, breathing heavily? Thankful. I felt thankful that I have a new path to pursue when I was lost in the woods. I felt thankful that I had been able to have this feeling again. It was just me there, but I didn’t feel alone.
This week I got minimal trail running shoes and signed up for a running form clinic. I’ll keep you posted on how it goes. I’m so nervous to try again and find that what I’ve been setting my hopes on won’t work. I know it won’t be a quick fix and may not work exactly like I envision, but I have to take the next step and see where this path leads me.
