My wife and I will be celebrating our 5 year anniversary on April 8th. We packed a lot in 5 years, two kids, both working full-time, both of us in school, my wife going for her masters, me going for my bachelor’s degree. She then stopped with school last year, it was too much. I am graduating in May with my bachelors degree. Now my wife will continue with her Masters. Look for life to slow down just a bit, I know that doesn’t happen, especially with young kids, but just a little will be nice.
We are going away to Baltimore for the weekend for a little getaway, the kids are coming as well. I heard they have an amazing aquarium in Baltimore. Should be fun.
Now marathon training, on paper, this week should be the week were I peek at max mileage, which was only going to be 40 miles. Well that will not happen, I ran 5.6 miles on Tuesday, and going to run my last 20 miler tomorrow, thursday. We leave on friday morning for Baltimore, so it will be only 2 days of running this week. Not your standard marathon training, but honestly I am not even sweating it. Last year if I did this during my first marathon training a full-blown argument would have happened because I would be freaking out about my training. But like I said, my outlook on running has changed, it’s not a job, it’s something I love to do, and feel blessed that God gave me a healthy body to run. So looking forward to the 20 tomorrow, if I feel good I might even push it to 22, but I will not force it if I don’t feel it.
