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!

Ran the Fairfield CT half marathon this morning. Came in with a time off 1:50:12.  This  was my 8th consecutive year running this race, and barefoot. My training was super light. Maybe 12-15 miles per week with no speed training, or fancy workouts, all runs were slow. I started lifting weights again, and noticed a big difference with running. The weight training is what pulled me through. The best snack/protein bar out there. Definitely no BS.

Street Art. Friday evening at the beach. My little sweetie is growing up.  We were stuck in traffic and I snapped a quick picture of her and it's crazy to notice the changes of your children at certain points.
