Wow, I’ve let 10 days go by without posting anything. I really am a blog slacker these days. The last couple of months I really haven’t had that much to write about.
I fear this is going to be our last beautiful day in Northern Utah for a while. We had beautiful weather in the high 60s and 70s over the weekend. Yesterday it was so beautiful I couldn’t bear to force the kids to come inside and do homework. Last night on our cul-de-sac, I swear every kid on the street was out playing together. It was nice to see so many kids on their bikes, roller-blades, rip sticks, and playing soccer and basketball together. Alas, the weather forecast calls for rain and thunderstorms over the next three days.
Confession time: I have not trained at all for this half marathon coming up in August. I realize it’s 4 months away and that’s plenty of time, but I’m getting nervous. I cannot find the motivation to get my butt out there and train. I think I’m remembering how painful the half marathon was last year and how the nearer I got to the finish line, the more I swore to myself I would never participate in one of these things again. I think half marathons (and probably marathons, but I’ve never done a full one of those) are like giving birth. It is so painful in the moment and you wonder what you’ve gotten yourself into. And then you forget about the pain a few months later and somehow talk yourself into another one. I know for my physical health I should do it, but I just feel so “meh” about it.
And that’s my randomness for today.
