Excuses, excuses…

I recently moved and just found in the unpacking exercise my foot brace.  Many may ask why do you carry it around?  It reminds me how far I have come and how proud I should be of myself.  I am always so hard on myself – Carrie why can’t you go quicker, Carrie why can’t you run today?  That day happened yesterday – I did sprint training on thursday, then went on a rigorous hike on Friday, and then could barely even run yesterday…what happened.  Couple of thoughts – I was the last person on the hike and was by myself and that made me a little sad and a little self-conscious….but then I realized, hey I was hiking…be thankful!  Then yesterday when i couldn’t really run, I said to myself, hey, I did a lot this week without a day off of course my little legs are tired…it happens dystonia or not…so this morning when I saw the brace, I started crying because I realized how far I have come…how far I have to go….and you know what there is a big celebration coming up…April 4….so I will save some of my thoughts for my favorite day of the year!
