The amazing part?
I was thinking, around mile 6.5 when I was ready to go home, how 5 (FIVE!) years ago I was knocking out 8 milers midweek marathon training.
That made me feel a little crappy. Besides that I don't run 30+ mpw now, I'm a good 15+ lbs heavier and quite a bit slower now.
But then I got to thinking...in 5 years I've(/we've):
- bought 2 houses
- sold one
- moved three times
- had twins
- took two new jobs, then got promoted/moved to a new role at the latter
and on the upside, I'm pretty on track with training for my March 17 half, and its been a LONG time since I said that.
