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!
