Since the tri a few weeks ago, my mind is filled with sludge or Lake Michigan water or perhaps the web of summer is being cleared out. Who knows which, but I have struggled to put together any cohesive thoughts. What I am left with is a lot of random thoughts in my head.
What things are bouncing around in here are not necessarily positive. The coolness of fall can either make me excited as the seasons change, or depressed that the summer is gone. Lately, the later is more prominent.
I am sad that I can’t run….okay, I never could actually RUN, but I could jog. I love Fall evenings to decompress and go for a jog. But, injury is prohibiting that.
I am also dreading the change of clothing. I believe I tossed most of my fall and winter wear last year because nothing seemed to really fit right. Now I am reluctant to open the boxes of ill fitted and random clothes from last year. Why do I struggle so much with my wardrobe? I need the fat version of Clinton and Stacy on a budget to help me out here.
So, my apologies for not having any witty or insightful banter these days.
I am off to island biking in Virginia with my dad for a week of cycling which should be fun. I can’t believe that last year, he was in the hospital recovering from a heart attack and bypass surgery and this year we are off on a cycling adventure. Hopefully a little sun, sand and spin will shew away the blues I’m feeling. Here’s to hopes of a renewed spirit.
