bipolar strikes again

crazy-dollso back in april i was feeling really good (maybe a bit TOO good) and made these ambitious plans to participate in the nanny goat 24-hour race as a walker. then much like what happened for the 9 trails 35 mile in november 2007, the high desert 50k in december 2007 and the avalon 50 mile in january 2008, depression hit and i lost my mojo… to get out of bed, let alone run an ultra.

there is always the possibility when i make plans to meet with a friend, take a solo trip, run a race, attend a conference or workshop, that when the date of the event approaches i will be depressed and unable to follow through with my plans. especially if said event has been planned in a period i am hypo-manic. it’s hard to predict how i’m going to be feeling a week from today, and months ahead even harder.

i’m beginning to feel the “tingle” to make plans again, and i’m feeling pretty stable at the moment, so i may pick a half-marathon or marathon to start dipping my toes in the world of racing again. i can sure count on my husband to keep me grounded to reality when i share any plans with him now.

    Stumbled on your blog today and was completely inspired. It’s nice to know that there are other unperfect people out there dreaming, shotting for the stars, and living life to the max as much as possible. I have my mood swings too and at times it’s really hard to stay on track. I look forward to reading some updated work this month. Hope to see something soon super woman!
