it was a little bit easier to get my runs in.
Don't get me wrong, I love my husband and I love, LOVE, L.O.V.E. being a mom to my wonderful, adorable daughter. But sometimes it is just so much juggling and work to do a simple little thing like run 17 miles. Am I selfish for not wanting to give up running now that I have a family? But I don't think my husband wants to be married to the person I would be if I didn't run. And I don't want Sophie to have the kind of mom I would be if I didn't run.
So that leaves me with the juggling. And the begging my mom to drive an hour up here to visit with her favorite daughter and granddaughter (oh and by the way can you watch Sophie for a few hours while I run, thanks so much!).
I look back at the days before I was married and before Sophie and think damn, I should have run a million miles back then, I had nothing but time.
Pending proper alignment of the stars, I'll be getting my 17 miler in tomorrow morning. Good luck to all of you who are racing this weekend - looking forward to the race reports for some runspiration!
