Hubbs was not to come home and as all wives know, your daily planning is quite different when your playing the role of married-single-parent than when you are including the Hubbs in the mix.
And it is not always easier to have him there as you might think it would be.
As always this is my "world is mostly rosey" place so I don't talk much about the struggle for understanding from my Hubbs in regard to my distance running. This struggle has become harder since Hubbs has been sidelined himself due to injury and surgery.
So my plan to have a sitter stay with the kids while I went and ran the marathon went by the wayside.
I had not registered for the race so I don't have a DNS on my record AND I did tell Hubbs that I was okay with not running when we talked about it last weekend HOWEVER I didn't realize how much I wanted to see how I could do on a street distance race while streaking
we went to visit an extended family member in the hospital and
we were one block away from the finish line.
Can I be suckered into another house cat??
I guess there is no crying over spilled milk or races not run.
Since I spent $$$ on the extra March Ultra ~ and still haven't told Hubbs yet ~ I am a littleglad I didn't register for the race.
Hubbs and I will be racing this weekend!
The local Fall Foliage Classic.
So I stopped my pity party
which really isn't any fun like a party so why do they call it that?
And got on the treadmill late last night for a few miles of stress reduction.
