Warning - this is VERY SAD!
As of May 28th my husband no longer has a job. In 1998, he started charter fishing in South Louisiana- (www.dufrenesguidesevice.com) - taking people fishing for speckled trout and redfish. We are both self-employed and we love our way of life. In a very short period of time everything has changed, and currently we do not know what the road ahead has in store for us. I have faith that things will work out, and in the mean time, as usual, my running becomes even more important to me.
Currently we are looking into the possibility of going to work for BP. As we investigate we are worried about health issues, and the possibility of ruining our boat. On the other hand, we need money to survive, and good paying jobs are NOT easy to find. When one door closes....another one opens.
We pray families of the 11 people who died in the initial blast on the rig and realize that yes, we are entering a very scary time, and what we had in the Gulf may never be again, but we have our lives, and our family, and that is the most important thing.
Running - today I start my 4th week of running. I am feeling good, loving it, and starting to add a few quality runs, but mostly - just running. As I go through this current hurdle in our lives, my goal will be to run and keep the endorphins revving. That's it!
week 1 - walk 9 miles and run - 14 miles
week 2 - walk 6 miles and run - 17 miles
week 3 - walk 6 miles and run - 22.5 miles
I am confident that my next post will not be so depressing.
