I‘ve always run - for pleasure , for peace, for understanding, to heal, for control. I have always strived for control. I have always felt like I could achieve control for the most part. That was at least all true until my daughter was born, then I lost all control. My life suddenly stopped, my heart stopped, I stopped breathing. For a year everything stopped.
After my daughter came home, I had to relearn how to do all the basics again. I had to learn how to breathe again, how to exist again, so exist for something far greater than myself. Then I lost me. Its been a journey back to running. A journey back to a part of me that found peace, found understanding, found control, when my feet met the road. So I run to heal. I run to put control around something that changed my life and my soul. I run for Sophie. I run for those who stand by me and with me. I run for all 12 of us who have chosen to run, who have chosen to run for all the other moms on this journey. What an beautiful journey it has been and will continue to be. Forever Stronger. Forever Grateful. Forever Changed.
