Add in two very active toddlers.
Take one woman who plans on running a half marathon about a forty minute drive from her house. It should take her just under three hours to run the race. With the commute on either end, it would be about a five hour commitment.
Again, don't forget the sick husband.
And the active toddlers.
In order to run my half marathon yesterday I would have had to leave the house by 6:30 in the morning. I wanted to get there early enough to pick up my packet and get decent parking.
I just couldn't do it. I couldn't ask someone to come over that early to babysit the boys while my husband continued to be miserable from whatever ails him.
I didn't run my half marathon yesterday.
I am bummed. Making the rational adult decision sucks.
Instead once the boys were awake, I got them some breakfast then we went to my sister's house once her daughter was awake. They played with her while I ran five miles. It wasn't the 13.1 I planned on running but it was better than nothing.
|Nothing like a little bathroom selfie before a run!|
|Gotta love negative splits.|
You know what I am truly bummed about? I had a box of Girl Scout cookies I was planning on opening yesterday after my half. Instead they went into the basement freezer.
