I put on weight and was not happy. I changed my diet to an alkaline diet and no more pain. I was being poisoned by processed foods. I began to run 5 ks again and it was fun. Last year around Easter I almost lost my husband to sepsis. He was in the hospital for a month. I would work, go to the hospital and visit him while he was comatose, and go home with so much frustration that I ran and bicycled til midnight. I decided that life was short and I needed to complete my bucket list. Last year I did15 events. My first 10k, warrier dash, triathalon sprint among some. This year I’m signed up for triathalons, obstacle runs, 5 ks cause they are fun, 10 ks, and my first half marathon on May 3rd. I don’t want to have regrets later. Thank God my husband is still alive and my life is blessed.
