Transitioning Back

Today it was “Back to life, Back to reality”.  I have had that song stuck in my head since yesterday.  Blech!  Oh well.  It was a rocky transition back for me this morning.  Left my keys in my mother’s car, which Dad was driving around this morning to some doctor’s appointments.  Luck on my side, but not my fathers, had him being to large for the one MRI machine so he had to come down to one right down the street from my house.  He dropped the keys off and I was on my way to the office.

I walked in to find a finish line stretched across the opening to my cube and a card signed by all of my co-workers congratulating me.  I was a nice surprise.  I got to share some of my war stories, like the huge blisters that are gone but still have my feet feeling raw and the toenail that is progressively turning black. 

I still haven’t returned to running post-marathon.  I need to get back on track though because on the 26th I start working towards my 410 miles in 16 weeks.  😀

    Guess that toenail is just an added bonus! Woo Hoo!

    Nice to get home to that welcome, I’m sure.
