Better.

So, no lie, last week was a tough one for me. Who knows what was up -- it was just tough all around. I had the cruddy treadmill run and then I sorta crumbled under the weight of my own insecurities and doubts. It wasn't limited to my running, unfortunately. I had plenty of doubts related to the rest of my life, too. I'm going to chalk it up to a bad week.

Please don't think I'm all Debbie Downer all the time! This is, after all, The Happy Runner blog.

After writing my post on Thursday, I felt like a weight had been lifted. Just saying what had been going on was liberating and your encouraging and supportive comments totally buoyed my spirits. And, I admit, your comments made me realize even more just how ridiculous it is to compare oneself to others.

I met a deadline and had a nice evening with Owen and Conal on Friday, and went for a nice run, finished decorating the tree and had some delicious Japanese food on Saturday. All good.

And the frosting on this gingerbread cookie of a good weekend? I received an awesome package of running goodies in the mail from Jill (onelittletrigirl) at Finishing is Winning. I won her giveaway a little while ago and it was as good as advertised!

Check out what she sent:

Who's the lucky runner now? Me! Me! Yup, I am. (It has taken all of my willpower not to rip open the Pretzel Slims and eat them all.)

Thanks, Jill! I love it!!

Hope you all are enjoying the weekend!

It sounds like things are going better! ITA, airing it all out can help immensely. I hope things continue to look up for you. Enjoy your new goodies.

Funny how sometimes saying what is bothering you and letting yourself be vulnerable is so liberating!

Congrats on being a winner in two ways - having a great weekend and winning some goodies!

I am so glad it arrived in one piece! And your pic of it turned out even better than mine!

Oh and trust me...I usually have to hide the pretzels from myself!

love using my blog to 'get things out'.... sometimes just putting it in writing or words helps. Glad you're feeling better, and nothing beats getting things in the mail other than bills! Yay!

Denise said...

Sometimes getting it out is all you need to move on, so yay. I had a real navel-gazey week last week too but my run Friday really pulled me out of it. Jealous of your awesome giveaway win! :)

Marlene said...

We all have those weeks. Glad you're feeling better after a nice family weekend.

Mmm, look at all the goodies! I LOVE chocolate pretzels.

That goodie bag should help turn that frown up side down. :o)

Lara said...

Sometimes just saying it helps, and when other people can give you some good ju-ju, it's even better. Glad you're feeling better this week, I think last week was a hard one for many people, from what I'm hearing.

I hope you have a better week. And if you don't, open those pretzels and go to town! LOL!
