The last 2 weeks of my life have been a marathon. Scratch that. Harder than a marathon.
- Finding a cupcake in Manhattan.
- Vacationing with a vomiting toddler.
- Discovering 1/2 hour before you were to leave for a wedding that your husband did not pack the dress you intended to wear (even though you specifically asked him to pack it and only one other item).
- Discovering that the Express around the corner from your hotel does not sell dresses because, well, PANDA.
- Flying from New York City to Denver with a vomiting toddler.
- Flying from New York City to Denver with a vomiting toddler and a vomiting preschooler.
- Flying from New York City to Denver with a vomiting toddler and a vomiting preschooler, while vomiting yourself.
- Auditioning for Listen to Your Mother via FaceTime because your husband is out of town and everyone is still sick.
- Learning that you did not get into Listen to Your Mother.
- Dealing with your preschooler’s 1 millionth tantrum.
- Dealing with your preschooler’s 1 millionth tantrum alone because your husband is still out of town.
- Realizing that the stomach bug didn’t actually go away. It was just silently lurking for a few days, waiting for an opportune time to initiate your next spontaneous cleanse.
- Watching 4 kids aged 5 and under for 9 hours.
- Watching 4 kids aged 5 and under for 9 hours DURING THE CLEANSE.
- Not running at all because your body just can’t handle it.
This is real life friends. It’s harder than a marathon. Shit happens. In my case quite literally, as it turns out. But I got through it and I’m planning on a run this afternoon. Yoga tomorrow, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. [bctt tweet=”Shit happens. In my case quite literally, as it turns out.” username=”@realfittogether”]
What’s your plan? Do you or someone you know need help building one? My bio says I’m not an elite runner. (I’m not.) But I do happen to have a lot of experience figuring out how to make running happen in the middle of real life. And I’m looking for 2 new Personal Run Coaching clients. Check out the FAQ or ask me a question if you’re kind of interested but not yet ready to commit.
