What's next

The funeral went well. No drama from dad's wife, which was a big relief.

I pretty much feel numb. It's really bizarre. We've been through so much the past year.

I ran the half Sunday and it was wonderful. Kate helped me so much. I'd have walk the last 7 miles without her. As it was, we ran until 10.5ish miles, walked 2.5, then ran the last stretch to the finish. We finished in just under 3 hours. I didn't injure anything and I felt ok the days after.

I'm still amazed by my body, that it can do what I do with it even without proper training. Kate and I were joking about how in 10 years we're gonna look back at these "glory days of our 40s" and long for them.

So we've a ton of stuff to do for dad's estate. That's my area, so it will keep me busy. But that's ok. I'm just praying we don't have anymore drama.

My food was not so great the past week, but I didn't gain much. It's time, though, for me to get back to a plan and start working toward taking care of myself the way I deserve. Again.

Thank you all for your condolences and kind thoughts.

I had totally forgotten about the wife. and they must still be married from your phrasing. and that had to have made the complications of his estate/paperwork VERY complicated.

so very glad you ran.

and remember, now is the time to be ubber careful with yourself - it is the 'after' that almost always bites us in the butt.

glad the funeral went well. I have been thinking of you a lot and hope the good vibes are finding their way south.

Congratulations again on the run, that's amazing. I am glad you did it. Also glad no drama. You need healing and having just been through it I know it takes some time. I need to get my food better, too. It will fall into place. Hang in there!

do you think you might be able to post once a week as you regain your life/focus now - ? seems like it would be good for you at this sort of wobbly after time.

Wow, Laura. So glad to hear you did so well on the run. And that you had Kate for support.

Take care of yourself, please. Be as kind to yourself as you are to others.
