I was not much of a runner when Joe was alive. But after he died, running became a powerful tool to clear my mind and feel alive. If I needed to cry, that was fine. It made me feel in control of myself on this crazy journey of healing. After a run, I feel incredible and proud that I survived it and continued to push myself to finish. The same way I look at the end of each day, I pushed myself to get up and live and finish another day, and I've survived another day without my Joe, when I never thought I'd ever have to do that.
I'm running the Widow Dash this year once again in honor of Joe and and to prove to myself that I am stronger than I imagine, that I've come so far in this journey.
