I was thrilled to get cleared to start working out again.

 

I’ve been dreaming of running since around the 20th week of my pregnancy when I begrudgingly began walking instead of running at the request of my physician.

 

There’s a certain freedom that comes with running that just makes you feel alive.

 

I was so excited to test out my new running stroller – and I couldn’t wait to lace up my shoes and hit the pavement.

 

The sun was shining, the weather was cool, and off I went… for a whole mile before I was huffing and puffing – my legs feeling as if they weighed 100 pounds each.

 

Woof. What the heck just happened?

 

Running is decidedly more difficult than it was pre-pregnancy.

 

My doctor told me to ease into it. “Your mind will feel as if you can pick right up where you left off, but you need to listen to your body.”

 

I hate it when she’s right.

 

Some days it’s just a matter of putting one foot in front of the other and getting it over with.

 

I know the end result will bring back that all familiar runners high – and that every run is literally a step towards getting back where I once was, even if the process is less than enjoyable at times.

 

Such is the case with estate planning.

 

The process can seem arduous; the thought of discussing your personal affairs with a stranger off-putting.

 

However, it’s taking that first step to schedule an appointment that is the most challenging.

Team My Pink Lawyer Turkey Trot 2018I signed myself up for the Double Bridge Run in February (along with my lovely teammates on the #mypinklawyer running team, of course!) to give myself a goal to work towards.

 

Just as registering for my first race post-pregnancy is giving me a deadline to get back into running, setting that initial estate planning consultation with our office will give you a firm deadline to get yourself organized.

 

Because in life, as in running, sometimes showing up is the hardest part.
