I have a lot to be grateful for today, most of all for my sobriety of course. This morning I finished my first official 5K race and also set a personal record (34:48). I owe a lot to the lady in this pic for motivating me to start running and motivating me to keep running through my battles with depression and bad medications.
I’m addicted. I’ve already planned out my next 5 races. The goal is by the end of the summer to be up to 10K and then after that half-marathons are in my bullseye. I know a lot of drunks still manage to run (I mean that’s what hashing is completely about) but it’s not something I could have done. I’m a new me every day.
