A Trip For Me

It's been a week since I ran the NYC half and 5 days since I arrived back from my trip to NYC. 

My trip to NYC was more than a vacation or a race to me. It was about some much needed and overdue "me" time and about finding myself again.

Since having London (almost 18 months ago--CRAZY!!) I haven't been away from him for more than 12 hours. I'd never spent a night away from him. My days are busy from thewake up until the moment I go to see (530-6am to 9:30-10pm.)

Jarod is a great dad but doesn't do anything with London, alone, outside of the house. Running is my "me" time but now that's usually in the basement gym with them playing around me (which I love!!)

I needed this trip. I needed to not rush through getting ready in the morning, I needed to eat a meal at a normal speed, I needed to take a break from always being "on" and entertaining someone, I needed uninterrupted girl talk and I needed to worry about myself. I needed to be selfish. 

My trip was exactly how I wanted and I came back refreshed.

Don't get me wrong, I missed London and Jarod but it wasn't hard to be away. It was great for all of us!

I'm not ready to go away anytime soon but I will do it again... Maybe even back to NYC ;)

  1. I'm glad that you got to get away and recharge. Nothing bad about being a little selfish every once in a while. :)
