I had every intention of posting something yesterday but I never got around to it. A certain little boy needed some major hugs.
Last night my husband and I went out for dinner instead of our usual Thursday night date. While at dinner he started asking about fall run events. I was kind of surprised that he asked. He hasn't really run since the marathon. He was running because I did. I kept reminding him that he can run on his own, but it's usually me getting him off his butt to run. We might actually show up for a November walk/run 5k. It's one we've participated in before, and there's brunch served afterward. I had it in my head that I did not want to participate in any events, especially a 5k, unless I could run. Well, I'm still not back to running yet. I'm sure I could walk a 5k with no problem, but it would take me just shy of an hour to complete. My head is still wrapped around my pace per mile, beating my last 5k time, seeing that finish line, and running so hard to the end that I feel like throwing up. This would be the first time I would walk a 5k IF we decide to participate. This little time dilemma probably sounds stupid to most people, but my body is still healing and dealing with pain, while my mindset has not changed and is so ready to move on. I'm so impatient right now. I could always just purchase the brunch and not run or walk, and save a spot for my husband at the brunch afterward. We'll see.
