I want to that everyone for the encouragement and support in regards to my previous post.
It is difficult to not go down the “I failed, I’m not good enough” road when you don’t meet a goal that was so important and worked so hard for. (Running in this summer’s heat wave, 5:45 run times, etc.)
A good friend of mine put it in the perfect perspective for me:
“Samantha, you have faced many challenges in the past few years and wouldn’t be in such a good place now if you looked at them as failures. Roadblocks my dear, go around or over but never give up. We all believe in you. “
So, I’m going to look at it as another roadblock and find a detour to get to my goal.
