It's going on 4 weeks since I got my pm. It was a rocky start but I have been doing better daily, for the most part. I still don't feel 100% yet. I'm writing today because today was the marathon I was hoping to run. I had trained and lost 50 lbs but due to bradychardia I was given the pm and my first marathon went out the window. I went out to cheer on my friend and training partner. I was so sad at first but when he ran by I jumped out and ran with him to talk to him. He had my name written on his arm to help keep him going. It's weird to be in that postion. Funny, he's thankful he doesn't have a pm and I'm thankful I do. I ran with him for quite a while and it was awesome. It was so discouraging to not be able to run the race, but it is such a gift to be able to run at all.
I felt good the whole way but eventually I was becoming more aware of my chest, no pain just heavy I guess. I quit and walked. I'll try again in a couple weeks.
Thanks again for all your help these last weeks. The emotional support here is awesome.
