Week two is in the books. I had to take the first couple days off to get rid of my sickness, but I still managed to log 41.46 miles which puts me at 240.31 total miles. I have really been lucking out with the weather, but it is not looking good this week. On Wednesday it looks like I will be running when it is 3 degrees outside. I wake up and workout so early that I can crawl back into my warm bed until Bella wakes up which is nice.
I don't know if it is an illusion or what, but this training has not really taken away from my time with my family. When I trained for my marathon, Janelle was working on her MBA, I was working on my PGA Apprenticeship, and we had a baby under the age of one. When Janelle and I trained for our half ironman we had a toddler and it is not possible to train at the same time. This made training absorb our entire days together. Now Janelle is working on strength training and neither of us are in school, so I am able to schedule my training in a way that will take away as little time as possible, this will change when I am riding 100+ miles and running over 20 in a day, but that is a ways away.
Our family has already booked a cabin that sleeps 13 people in Idaho and we are excited to spend the week with family and friends. We would like to encourage everyone to come out and witness the race in person, and would love to see everyone there. In the meantime there are miles to be traveled and dollars to be raised. I cannot thank everyone enough for their contributions, and for those that have not donated yet please do so. Our next promotion to raise money is coming soon, the Rowdy Bars were a success and we are very thankful to Kellie for her generous help.
