There’s a reason why I’ve been missing around here. The truth is back in March my anxiety got out of control and depression set in hard. Many things fell through the cracks. This blog being one of those things. It took me months to realize something was off, then a couple of weeks to get up the courage to ask a therapist friend for a referral. Then once I got the referral it took me a few more weeks to finally call and make an appointment.
Without getting into too much detail describing my crazy I’ve been going to therapy weekly for a couple of months. I’m slowly getting back on track and I finally feel okay trying to add blogging back into my list of to dos. Luckiky in the midst of my mental ups and downs I was able to keep up with my workouts. It was probably one of the only grounding thing in my life.
This year my first race was the Big Sur Marathon, which I still need to recap. Spoiler alert: it was challenging yet amazing. My next event is the Naperville Esprit de She sprint triathlon on June 14. I did this race last year and it was my first triathlon. I stressed out a lot about it and it turned out to be an excellent learning experience. I’m looking forward to participating this year in a less stressed out manner. I will also be running the Chicago Marathon in October. Maybe this year I’ll run my sub 4.
I have a lot of blog worthy things in my head and my intention is to share it all here. So here goes nothing.
Have you had to make a come back to blogging?
