Happy Anniversary to ME!!

Thursday, November 20, 2008

It is one year today that I suffered my heart attack!! Right about this time 10:30 am is when I got the phone call on my sister in laws cancer and then roughly 10 to 15 minutes later that is when the nagging pain I had in my chest started to get worse then move onto the upper left arm. By noon one year ago I was in the ambulance on the way to the hospital. Its just sad that my sister in law didn't make it one year with her cancer...she's gone and I'm still here. She was with me today I took the angel I bought for her when she was going thru her chemo, I took that with me today on the run as I do every run. If not for her, I wouldn't of gotten back out there to run. She made me promise that I would atleast try to get back out there she knew how much I enjoyed running and she said she felt guilty because I had the heart attack when hearing the news of her cancer. She felt guilty for that I feel guilty cause one year later I'm here healthy as can be and she's not. This is not where I had plan on going with the entery! Just kinda hit me as I was typing..........sigh

I celebrated today by going for a run!! YAY!! My time sucked. Today just wasn't a good running day. Its windy and seems like I was face in the wind the entire time. But 39 minutes for just over 3 miles...HORRIBLE! I just hope and pray that Saturday there is no wind. I'm so excited about my 5k Saturday!! I'm so excited that I made it one year without any other problems...other than a few nearly passing out episodes but nothing other than that.

    I'm happy you're getting healthier and able to run again. I remember reading about your frustration after the heart attack, stepping on the treadmill at a slow walk and having to get off after 5 or 10 minutes because your heart rate was too high. God has brought you a long way, and through a lot of adversity in the last year. I'm proud of you!

    Best wishes on your up-coming 5 K. It seems like you have taken what could have been an obstacle and made it into an Opportunity. I am sorry at the loss of your loved one; it is good that you were challenged to do well. God bless you. Linda
