Anyone There?

Well, it's been a minute since my last post or since I even checked my Blogger feed.

I'll give the good news first - I ran my second half marathon last week with a 20 MINUTE PR!!! It was super awesome. Minus stiff knees for 24 hours after that, I wasn't sore at all which is pretty crazy and weird.

More good news - I am running the NYC marathon in November!!! I got in through the lottery drawing along with 19,000 other people. I am scared shitless but I'm excited and determined.

The bad (but could be worse) news - I am still struggling with anxiety and "depression" although it's not NEARLY as bad as it was, probably because I am on medication. I use quotes because for the last 2 months I've been doing a ton of research on the brain/gut connection and the underlying cause for depression. The root in which it stems from. I am not a doctor (obviously) but if you're at all curious, I encourage you to research this connection.

I don't want to mask my feelings with medication for the rest of my life so, I'm desperate to find an answer as to why I woke up on 10/25/2015 (6 months ago today), not feeling quite right. I am still not the same as I was before this happened.

We all go through hard times, some worse than others, ups, downs, etc. and I just feel that doctors are so quick to prescribe medication.

Thankfully my friends, family, running and CrossFit have helped tremendously.

I'm hoping to become more active on my blog again soon!
