The journey is where life happens. It’s not about crossing the finish line. It’s about how we get there. When I started this blog 5 years ago, I was focused on my adventures in running and sharing my tales of crossing the finish line. Over the course of the past year, I’ve found that I no longer have the same drive to post about my adventures in training for and running the next big race.
My life revolves around being a faithful wife, a loving sister and daughter, an encouraging friend and balancing a successful career in public policy. Most days, I excel at some better than others, but this is where my drive comes from. Running is now my release. What keeps me functioning and able to remain centered in chaos.
Our life- my husband and mine- is about to change drastically.
We are excited to add another pair of feet to our pack! I realize now, more than ever before, that our journey is the most important part. I have been so focused on the finish- finally meeting and mothering our child, that I have lost part of the “now.” It has been six months of stress, tears, joys, longing and fear. What keeps me going is knowing that the best part of this journey is still unwritten.
The focus of my blog is changing as the my journey has changed course over the past year. I am excited to change course and I am excited to share this journey with you. So, let’s dive in. Over the next few weeks, I’ll take a look back to the beginning and share the rollercoaster that we’ve ridden thus far. My hope is that you will get a sense of what we are experiencing through this new direction of our lives and that you will share in our tears, fears and joy along the way.
