July 2nd - July 30th

Elev. Gain:1,300'
YTD Miles:314.4
YTD Time:51:52
YTD Elev.:39,300'

After spending the better half of the last 4 1/2 months trying to get a correct diagnosis on a sleep/insomnia disorder, which unfortunately never materialized in reality, I have finally been able to string together 2 weeks of not only sleep but also slowly getting my mind back and body mentally out of the hole that it was sucked into which drained me of not only my energy but it also forced me to re-write my entire life from my diet down to things as simple as the way I brush my teeth, and look at it with a magnifying glass, dissecting it like a science project. I honestly at one point not only wondered if I could ever run again but it got to the point that I started to accept that I may never fully be able to perform any type of athletic endeavor again. My thoughts ran the gamut and through it all I kept the most positive attitude I could considering the circumstances. 

And now I stand here on the 30th of July feeling like I may actually be fully on my way to recovery and I can say that though I have had some ups and downs in my life which made me appreciate the little things that we all take for granted in life, I never truly realized the depths of which our blessings are as human beings. I have a new set of eyes to view the world that I am blessed with awaking to each day, and I can promise I will not blink again.
