Of course I sometimes forget who I am married to. That was the case this weekend. I was getting ready Saturday to run just 5 miles since we had done 6 on Monday and I asked what he wanted to do. I said I was just going from Parking spot A to B and back to A a little over 5. I asked how he felt he said "fine." I saw the wheels turning and I said, "do you want to run out part of the way with me and if you have pain you can head back and I will meet you?" Of course as soon as I said it I knew his foot would have to be falling off before he turned around and headed back to the car. Of course he did the 5 miler with me and it was really fun. The beautiful weather was such a great change from the constant rain we have had all year. Then today we headed out to a trail we like along the Chattahoochee River. This weekend was one of those weekends where I am reminded of how much fun running is. We just had fun. We enjoyed beautiful sunny weather and time together. Maybe just us girls, but I had on cute running clothes and felt great. Finally feeling fully recovered after my fall, I was just enjoying myself.
I was also reminded how lucky I am to have supportive husband who loves running and supports me. He is often the motivation that pushes me out the door. At my half marathon he is the supporter at the finish line. We also learned about a new local race today. The Village to Village 11K in Smyrna. It is the weekend after my Soldier's Half in Columbus. I could tell hubby wanted to do the race. We decided he would register and this time I would be the one at the finish line cheering him on and taking pictures. This weekend just reminded me that I am a pretty lucky girl. Hope you are feeling blessed and lucky too. Who supports your running?
