I don’t think I’ve updated HH lately with my journey toward my 10K race in April. In general, I’ve been keeping up with running about twice per week. I’m pretty slow (~13:30min miles), and I usually run with the kids and our double jogging stroller (which is getting heavy these days!). I can sometimes go out by myself if Michael is home, and I’m always amazed by how much further I am able to run without pushing the stroller. I ran my first 10K distance about a week ago! Warrior Dash, the 5K adventure race I’m doing on March 17, is just a few days away now. I’m running it with my friend Susie, and we’re both pretty excited! I still almost can’t believe I’m doing it. It’s been so long since I’ve set a goal like this…it may be the first time I’ve set a goal like this actually!
For the first time in my life, I am ready to fight for that day of rest on Sundays. Michael and I have been reflecting together on the wisdom and necessity of a Sunday day of rest, and what specifically that means for each of us and for our family.
