Back to Basics – Recognizing my limitations

This weekend I was planning on running a 15K, below the 10mile threshold that my body can take…but after thinking long and hard about this, I still am not sure I can run or should be running more than 5-6 miles.  I am still recovering from the last 2 at the end of the year and a little off with balance.  So 2014, is the year of acceptance and gratitude.  So I am thankful I am healthy, can run and still pretty athletic..but accepting that a 15K may not be the right thing to do just after 8 weeks of almost running a marathon.

So for all my Dystonia readers, this isn’t about giving up.  This is about listening and honoring your body!  Be kind to yourself as I will be to myself in 2014.
