On top of my new role as nanny, my current situation volunteering for Sowers of Hope, a new job selling ads online, two online classes I have to complete before July 1st, I also found out on Friday that Christy and I got in to the St. George Marathon. While I would have been super sad not to get in, I am now remembering how time consuming training is. I have a fun relay coming up in June (that and a family reunion will be the only time I spend in Utah this summer) that I have not been training for like I should have been, but something about 26.2 miles in October has given me new motivation. Too bad the heat of Arizona summer kills said motivation every time I walk out the door to run.
I think I’ve got a long road ahead of me. And in case you didn’t already think me completely insane, Christy and I will also be running the Las Vegas Marathon in December. I’d hate to waste all of that training (you can see my other upcoming races on the sidebar) on just one marathon…so I thought the week before finals would be a great time to run another one. Thankfully my most excellent and favorite (and only…ha ha ha) brother-in-law will be purchasing a jogging stroller soon (maybe today), so I will be able to do my runs in the morning when Babykins first wakes up.
Ah, the life of the a single thirty-year-old who, apparently, thinks she really can do everything. If you’ll just keep visiting the blog, I’m sure a mental and/or emotional and/or physical breakdown is just around the corner and the posts about it are sure to be entertaining. Let the good times roll!
