the hardest part about being retired. and a runner

So yeah…yikes, I just dropped a grey hair on my keyboard!

Yeah, February 3rd 2014 I retired……April 1st 2014 I started working retail for the Running Room, March 14th..I retired yet again!

Then, well, Friday, I signed up for a new position at the Running Room for what I thought would be a few weekends a year, well, may be more than that…..50 events planned for this year, there are only 52 weekends in a year, and we’re into the fourth month of the year….so, it’s gonna be busy?

But, I don’t have to work every event apparently, but still…..oh well, another adventure….

I guess I’m still retiring wrong…

So still sort of retired with a lot of spare time, but not really…..actually I do, I just don’t really know how to use it?

Last week, I was out for a run through the Edmonton River Valley, I had a planned 5 to 6K run, and if time, a swim afterwards…..

I was worried about not having enough time?….. I’m retired, I have nothing but time!

Sort of…..

It was fine…the problem is, I keep trying to fill empty space with stuff….

then worrying about what to do all that stuff, and how to do all of that stuff…

and how to fit stuff all in……?

This past week was great…this weekend kind of sucked, but the week great…running, swimming, stuff…….but now I’m looking backwards and am freaking out because I keep thinking, I didn’t do enough stuff..

Than of course that leads to a Saturday and Sunday morning where I have so much I want to and need to do, that I didn’t do anything…’s like my head was stuck in a huge traffic jam…

Tomorrow, another week begins……the week should be fine…I just have to find a way to let go, to stop every so often to remember, I’m retired, I have all the time in the world….and I don’t have to do everything all the time and the same time..
