Barefootin' Mama in the Middle of Nowhere

Marathon ‘training’………..

So it’s day two of having admitted to people other than myself that I plan on training for a marathon… After a very fulfilling day of living my life my glorious husband says to me after supper (with a smirk might I add)… ‘so, how’s the marathon training going?’ THE NERVE of that guy!!! Isn’t he suppose to be all supportive and ‘rah rah rah, you can do it’ sort of attitude??  And in case he doesn’t know… I had a very busy day… I read Levynn some stories and swept my kitchen floor (I even thought about washing it), and played with Emmet (kinda) and weeded my garden and mowed three strips in my front lawn.. and made a GIANT turkey sized chicken and homemade fettucine alfredo for lunch and then I made awesome cucumber chicken pitas for supper, bathed our kids and got them to bed… Where would I find time to train in all that?? Besides… I don’t even have a training plan made yet… that was my project for this evening… that is a step…

Okay, okay…I need to be honest…. there was snow on the ground when I woke up this morning and it rained for the whole rest of the morning… For someone who doesn’t even have the ability to run the width of her house without contemplating passing out… forcing myself out of bed at 6am in the snow to go for a heart pounding ‘run’ is like getting water from a rock… it just ain’t gonna happen!!
