And I Ran
Part of my six week checkup was hearing the words I have been waiting to hear for about six months - that I could run again. I stopped the day we received Eli's Potter's diagnosis. I had only been lightly jogging during my pregnancy to that point and it was devastating to think that I had been jostling Eli in my belly without fluid. I have missed it each day since. Funny since I used to tell people that the only time I would run is from a fire! Now I run. I run to stay fit, I run for endorphins, I run to think. It makes me feel good inside and out, strong and in control. I think the feeling of putting one foot in front of the other and repeating. A simple instruction for living each day - put one foot in front of the other and repeat.
