I signed up to run a 10k on July 4th. I need something to keep me motivated while I get ready for half marathon training, which starts at the end of July. My trainer says I need to be able to comfortably run six miles by then. I’m not there yet. I ran a little over five today, and it was difficult. It sucks to remember how much easier this was pre-cancer treatment. I have to avoid letting myself wander down that line of thinking. It only leads to self pity, which is pointless. So lets concentrate on the good instead: I ran five miles despite being in active cancer treatment. Rads has me exhausted, but I still got up and ran. I can do this. I win.
