Last weekend I said I was going to meet 10,000 steps a day. I was going to plan and execute. I was doing well and met my goal until yesterday.
You see Wednesday night I got a phone call no one wants to get my brother in law was killed in a tragic accident. Not a car crash but a true accident involving a tractor. My sister lives 4 hours from any of our family and I am 20 hours from her.
She is one of my very best friends and I couldn’t be there. I’m still not there. I am heartbroken for her. I had no energy yesterday I just wanted to cry all day. It still doesn’t seem real. They have six kids, a daughter in law, and a grandson. His parents just lost a son. He leaves behind so many. He was well liked by all of the tributes on social media. It’s tragic. I’m hurting. Maybe running would’ve helped but I didn’t have it in me.
I walked 2.5 miles on my treadmill today during a work meeting. Maybe I’ll run more later. But this weather just makes me want to curl up on our couch with A and snuggle her and count my blessings.
Life can change in an instant and everyone says don’t take it for granted that’s something I truly want to live by. I never would have thought this would happen to my family. Cherish each moment. I will run more in the next few days and appreciate that I have the ability to run.
