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 sweetie is proud of her snowman she made, or I should say Sammy as the name she gave him. Family skate day. My mom at a young 70 lacing up the skates! My favorite girl.
#mysweetie So intense. Power and strength to the max. Who says dinosaurs don’t exist. Sunday morning 3 mile barefoot run. Blowing the dust off the skins. I like to incorporate deadlifts with my back workout. This was my last set of 240lbs for 6 reps. Seeking that 300lb mark down the road.

215 x 8

It’s starting to warmup in the garage, 25 degrees this morning. “I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.
The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.
In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.” MLK 🔥
