Depression Marathon Blog

My photo
Diagnosed with depression 17 years ago, I lost the life I once knew, but in the process re-created a better me. I am alive and functional today because of my dog, my treatment team, my sobriety, and my willingness to re-create myself within the confines of this illness. I hate the illness, but I'm grateful for the person I've become and the opportunities I've seized because of it. I hope writing a depression blog will reduce stigma and improve the understanding and treatment of people with mental illness. All original content copyright to me: etta. Enjoy your visit!

I did it. It's done. I didn't drown. I survived the hilly bike ride. And the run went well. I finished my first triathlon (1/2 mile swim, 13.1 mile bike, and 3.1 mile run) in 1:29:58. And you know what? It was fun! I guess I'm going to do another, and training (as well as my new job) starts tomorrow. Phew...I just looked. Tomorrow's schedule is REST.

I'll have pictures and a more thorough recap a bit later. Stay tuned!

Amazingly, excitedly, proud of you!! I DID think of you this a.m. around 8:00 ~ you were probably just about finished by then!

If you ever have a moment in life where you think, "I can't....." Please remember this day! Remember the feeling of crossing that finish line!

Wish there was a bigger word than CONGRATULATIONS!!! But that will have too do!!!

CONGRATULATIONS(Twice!) ~ Maggie Beth
