Thinking Out Loud in St. Thomas

This week has turned out to be a pretty hard week of training.  I’m in St. Thomas and the island is extremly hilly and the roads do not have shoulders so it is difficult to find a place to run.  I’ll have all the updates in my weekly  blog on Monday.

I have been taking lots of pictures here and it got me thinking about a few things.  How much I have changed in the last year.  Running has become a part of my life that I didn’t realize I rely on so much.  Since I haven’t been able to run the way I want it is bothering me.  Running really is an outlet and a time to clear my mind.  I feel like I have been doing much more technical running and my focus needs to stay on that, instead of decompressing the day.  I’ll be glad to get back to a regular running routine!

I mentioned pictures ealier; a picture from the memories feature on FB popped up this week and it was odd to see how much I have changed in the last year.  I’ve lost about 25 lbs.  I almost don’t look like the same person.  A year ago I wasn’t eating very healthy and running wasn’t really a part of my life.  I had given up any sort of regimine.  In October of last year I made a commitment to running and becoming a vegetarian, both have proven to be great experiences.  While I do think the running streak will come to an end after 365 days, I do not forsee me going back to eating meat.  I feel so much better and healthier!

It is odd that to think when people ask, “What’s new” I usually say not much.  Everyday seems the same but looking back a year everything has changed.  (I’m pretty sure that is a quote from someone else, just not sure who)

That was a bit random and short, but that is me thinking out loud this week.  Plus I’m pretty tired from a long day.

How have you changed in the last year?

  1. It’s pretty crazy that even though things don’t feel like they’ve changed, when you look at the bigger picture you notice huge differences. Hope St. Thomas is amazing!

  2. It’s the same way for me. I really don’t realize how much things have changed until I actually stop and compare the way things are now to the way they were a year or two ago. I think it’s because the changes are so gradual that we don’t even notice them happening… But it’s always great to see improvements, and it only keeps getting better 😀
