RT @TomRPI: Me: I’m going to go to bed before midnight tonight and get some rest..
My brain: Hey look it’s almost 1am! Here ar… https://t.co/44mrlnRDJm
I got up at 5am to run a #marathon (my second) that began at 7am and 32 degrees. I felt pretty empowered and strong and disciplined and focused. Then I lined up next to this guy - in the same weather, doing the same activity, in his underwear, with no shoes! Lol.
Don’t let comparisons steal your joy, friends. Marathons, and life, are a great opportunity to improve oneself, manage emotions, take risks, and meet new people. Try not to be too attached 🙂 Soak it up, listen to a book, and just keep running!
Finished today with a PR, 4:46; 10:58/mi pace! 🙂 pretty awesome for this guy!! I’m now officially a #marathoner
Driving the #bus to victory :) #fieldtrip to the #dump with @myclaridgeclan @joyveverka @reiswigt and a whole bunch of other #rogersadventistschool kids Watch Out! #manofmanytalents❤️ #yesihaveacdl
Lots of suffering going on in the world - I had a very minor (in the grand scheme) hiccup today. My car was #totaled this afternoon. Well...I’m assuming it will be 😭😭😭 A couple girls either missed the #redlight or were several seconds too slow on trying to catch yellow. I didn’t see them as they raced through on my green light.
I’m a little sore, but seem to be ok. Hope the girls are ok!!! My sons were not with me, hallelujah! Thanks to Alareece and Beverly who happened to drive by immediately after - and looked after me until Paige got there and picked me up. Thanks to Dot who looked after my kids while I slogged through car crash details 😕 Thanks Sharlene for always letting me borrow one of your cars in a pinch lol 🙂
Love you all, one of those moments where life kind of flashes quick. Give a hug to those you love ❤️
#slowandsteady for the most part - got it done though :) one last long run in a week and then we scale back a touch for the next 3 before #marathon day :) #marathontraining #injuriesstayaway
