I’m working on part II of “On Being That Black Girl”. I didn’t know people would find that interesting, so I’m fleshing out the second part a little more. In the meantime, I want to give a quickie update on me. Why? Why not?
Last week, I tried a running streak. It lasted 3 days and then my knee started to hurt. I’m happy to report that I took a day or 2 off and now feel fine. I’m sure the knee didn’t start bothering me due to the 3 days. The knee started bothering me because I ran in the Brooks Ghost. I really like that shoe, but can only wear it sparingly right now. Same thing with any other light shoes that I wear. For the time being, I’m rotating between the Mizuno Waveriders (so glad they fit well again! Love this shoe!), Brooks Launch, Brooks Ghost, and Brooks Defyance. Can you tell which brands I prefer?
So, the running is there. It’s getting easier and I’m starting to feel like a runnerish type person. (Though, oddly, I should be running right now but am not.) I’m thinking of doing a 10k at the end of May and may do a 5k around the end of the month. I have to look around and see what is available because I am lazy and refuse to drive for longer than I’m going to run.
Last Thursday I had an appointment with my cancer doctor. It was just a follow up and so far he says everything looks good. I’m waiting on the results of the tests that were taken. If everything is all clear I see him again in August, then I can become a regular patient that only goes to the gyno once a year. I am so ready to close this chapter of my life. This chapter seems to have been going on forever and I’m emotionally and physically exhausted from it.
Yes. I’ll admit it. My life is a bit of a mess right now. I’m working through it though and know I will get back to happy or at least content at some point. I just wish it would hurry the fuck up.
