Bethel Beach

The other day I drove to Bethel Beach for a quick visit.

It was an unusually calm, windless day. 

Also unusual was the fact that the sun was out.

It feels like we've had nothing but rain and misery dreariness for months on end.

We all survived Christmas and I for one am very much looking forward to 2019.  To help motivate me to exercise more, which I desperately need to do, I've signed up for a half-marathon in Virginia Beach in March.  Whether I will be able to complete it remains to be seen.  My only goal is to be able to walk it and finish.  If I don't, though, I don't.

It wasn't that long ago when my goal was to finish these races without walking at all.  Given the six months of chemo and subsequent heart issues, however, I have to adjust my goals downwards.  It makes me a little mad, but it all just makes me want to do and be better. 

So, here is to a healthier and happier 2019 for all of us.

Happy New Year.

The fact that you can come out of 2018 with all your health issues committed to a better year ahead makes you a " winner " in my book already. Good luck and best wishes in all you do and keep us posted as you turn your life around this year. Linda in Tn.
