In last semester of College – Senior

Right now I am in my last semester of College, I will be walking in May, but need to take a summer course to complete my degree.  I can live with that.  With working full-time, and fitting in family time,  this has been the hardest thing I have ever done, way more difficult than running a marathon, or any type of physical activity.  I would rather endure physical challenges than be in school, or write a paper. 

For the last 3 1/2 years I have been going to college at night pursuing my bachelors degree, I was out of school for 15 years and going back was a huge step for me.  I am not fond of school, I will be honest.  I have to thank my wife for pushing me to go back and get my degree.

I got a bit overwhelmed the other day because I am taking 3 classes instead of the normal 2, and was thinking about bailing out on the marathon I am running in May.  Training has taken a nose dive, and honestly the stress of this marathon is getting to me.  But I decided screw conventional marathon training, and see what happens with low mileage training.  

In all honestly I can’t wait until the marathon is over, looking forward to running it, but can’t wait to relax, run for enjoyment again, and live life without school!

My reactions exactly. Happy Birthday to my boy Andrew who turns 11 today.  There he is at 3 joining me at the finish of my first marathon.  I was about 50 yards from the finish line, spotted him in the crowd and wave and out he shoots to join me to the finish line. Such an awesome memory I will never forget. This is great! The Cove. Barefoot running and gravel paths!? Call it a nice massage on the feet. I never tried or thought about deadlifts when younger. Now at the ripe age of 46 I discovered how awesome they are.  With 3 weeks in I hit 190lbs for 5 reps on my last set. Thanks to my son for the recording.
