Life has been a whirlwind lately. Work, training for the half, spending time with friends, and being a wife. I feel like I have slacked on being a wife. It is so much easier to finish a run day, make dinner and crash on the couch for the evening instead of cleaning up the upstairs or downstairs. I am looking forward to this weekend and not thinking about work. I have decided not to take work home with me, literally and figuratively. When I am home I really want to be home. I miss being a housewife. I miss my husband feeling like when I am home he is all that matters. I miss feeling like I care.
That is enough of that! On to better things, no more harping. I am in a girl's bible study right now that I love!! We are reading Donald Miller's A Million Miles in a Thousand Years. Amazing! I am in love with this book. We just finished section 1 and on Monday I decided that I was going to write a better story with my life. I am not great at it yet, but I am taking daily small steps to become better and stronger. I want my family and friends to remember me I want others to remember me, or at least that I touched other's lives in some sort of way. If you haven't read this book I highly recommend it!
Training for the half is going well! Last weekend friend Tiffany and I ran 10 miles in 2:25:30. Not the best time ever, but I will take it. This weekend we are on to 12 miles and I can't wait. I promise you that a year ago I never would have typed on of the last sentences. I can honestly say I am addicted to running! It is a stress relief, it is fun and healthy. Since January, just by making slight changes in my diet and running, I have lost 11 pounds. Not quite where I hoped to be in weight loss, but I am certainly on my way to hitting my goal!! My second half marathon is on April 30th and I can honestly say I am already planning and working on my training schedule for my 3rd half in Sept! Life is good!
