Tying my shoestrings…

Wednesday, April 14, 2010


Running is an endorphin lifter.  It’s been researched and proven.  Well, I think that can be said of most exercise.  But running for me is a way to clear my mind, let go, and just be me.
I stated it on Facebook and I will state it here as well.  I am training for my second half marathon in the time we are taking a break from trying for babies.  I am hoping if I say it out loud enough it will become true in my head and I will get motivated to train.
You see, today is the first day in a long time that I am tying my running shoes for the activity of running.  It’s been almost an entire year from training…I’m hoping for the best, that I can still run for 10 minutes without having to stop and gasp for air. 
Lord, help me so I do not keel over and die on the side of the road from exercise induced exhaustion.  Wish me luck:)
Ps…what is your favorite exercise activity/endorphin lifter?

Pretty good...I ran for 30 minutes with a few walk breaks, and I didn't die on the side of the road so that was good...it was good for my heart too:)

Hi Andrea,

I saw your comment on Molly Piper's blog. This past October, my husband and I lost our sweet baby boy at 17 weeks gestation after 20 months of infertility. We have just recently started trying again and are back with our fertility specialist. It is so very hard.

I was just talking to a friend over lunch today about how I feel like I have definitely learned what hope is NOT, but it's still difficult to see what hope is, and to "put it on." Before our pregnancy loss, I sometimes felt that people only see miscarriages as a loss, and that infertility is not really considered much more than an anoyance. Now being on both sides of it, I can confirm to you that infertility is a heartwrenching loss as well, and you are allowed to feel pain grief.

I am not much of a blogger, but if you would ever like to contact me, my email address is lindsay.newcomer@gmail.com

Many blessings,

I'm glad I can encourage some....that in turn encourages me. :) I haven't been using the OPK's, they seem way too confusing to me, I'm taking my temps with a basal body thermometer each morning though, and we'll see if that proves to be helpful.

BTW, we still REALLY need to get together, I think we really would have a lot to talk about.
