I quit, I am done, and I am not doing it anymore. I am talking about training for the Twin Cities Marathon on October 4th. I have officially decided to halt training and not complete the race. The decision was not an easy one to make. I have invested a lot of time and money already and quitting would be throwing it all away. I brought up the issue to Chubby Hubby and I saw his face light up. I knew I was making the right decision when he threw his arms up in the air and yelled HALLELUJAH!
I don't like to quit things and usually I have guilt pangs if I do not complete something that I have started. This time is different. My life circumstances have changed significantly in the last few months and training has had to take a back seat. Work and family eat up the majority of my time right now and I want to be around for them more. Following a training schedule has become stressful since it did cut into my time with my kids. I have already proven that I can run a marathon with little training, I don't need or want to do it again. . For now, I am taking a step back, getting into better shape, and focusing on running being fun again. I may revisit the idea in a few years but for now I am going to stick to shorter distances.
Now that I have that off my chest, I need to get to real important stuff.
There a very important issue that needs resolution.
I just received this email from BFF's Hubby :
Just for the record, I just took 5 minutes to review the ‘stache votes on the blog.
4 – FOR
4 – against
2 – comments, no real vote
So, the jury is still out…
This is in response to her and I telling him that it was a land-slide victory for a nude upper lip in the previous informal poll.
Now to finally put this issue to bed, please take a moment to officially vote to keep or shave the 'stache.
