|Finish Chelsea's Run ~|
So today I absolutely hate to admit it but I am very sad. I just woke up feeling awful. I couldn't hardly get my clothes on or brush my teeth. As for a positive I got Allie's hair all cute, she dressed herself, I feed her a good breakfast, made her lunch and took her to school. She was happy as can be. So that was nice. As I drove home the tears started to fall and then really bad as I walked in the door. Now for for those that don't have Bipolar one might ask, "What happened? Why are you so sad?" I wish I had a reason. It is the nature of the illness. The reason is that my brain is off, the chemicals are not lining up quite right, and therefore my mood shifts to a dark sad awful spot. So when it does this to me which is a lot if I am telling the entire truth here I try to look at the light. I try to find the light. My positive thought was looking at this picture. My sister sent it to me last night. It is a 5k that I ran with my good friend Cheralynn (she is in the pic to the left). The race was Finish Chelsea's Run. Chelsea King was a high school runner at Poway High School and was murdered while training out on a near by trail. When the news broke 2 years ago that Chelsea went missing it hit home to everyone in San Diego. Everyone wanted to find her. For me being a former runner I was devastated by the outcome. This beautiful girl named Chelsea King didn't get to finish her race. She had her entire life ahead of her and it was taken from a monster that had no remorse. People started a foundation, her parents went all the way to the White House to get laws changed, and a race was born to finish Chelsea's run. My sister was sent an e-mail since her and I raced in it last year and my pic was on the advertisement! So I will sign up again and go run for Chelsea once again and finish her race and keep fighting to win my own race.
