While camped out on the elliptical at the gym this morning (watching some Wimbledon - vamos Rafa! and texting a dear, dear friend), I came to a few conclusions. I also realized that it's been 3+ months since my last post. Oh well.
I had a great race at the Greenwich half, and have done two other races since then. Both with the double stroller. One was a 5K and the other was a 4.4 mile fun run. I'm not doing individual race recaps because as proud as I am of the times we clocked, it's not important in the grand scheme of things. Sure, I broke my 2 hour goal in the half, and I ran steady paces during the other two, but you know what? Those two races I signed up for on the spot. Yep. Never done that before. Why? Because I didn't know if we, collectively, would be up for them. There have been a few other races that we've passed on. One on Memorial Day, another last weekend... but for some reason or another (baby needed a nap asap, timing didn't fit with nursing, one or more of us were up the night before) we didn't.
Bottom line: Running is A priority. It's not THE priority.
Happy Running and SUMMERING!
