My grandmother passed away this morning. She was my father’s mom—Dad and I are very close. I hate to see my dad missing someone so much. It’s a sad day.
I don’t handle death well… not sure anyone does. But funerals in particular are very, very hard for me to navigate. I am not brave when it comes to funerals.
Today, I also made the decision to withdraw from Ironman Louisville.
I crashed on my bike on Saturday, injuring my hip in some way or form. I had an MRI scheduled for this morning, but I cancelled. I didn’t see the point with the decision I had reached. The hip, coupled with the missing of key workouts lately and pain and uncertainty, I might could drag myself across a finish line in Louisville–but I just did that in July, and I was not looking forward to that again.
So… onward and upward. Breathing in and out, and finding gratefulness and peace in whatever small spaces we can. #justkeepmovingforward
