on running and schedules

My schedule is challenging,  I'm not saying I am busier then everyone else, because I know I have it pretty good, but my schedule is challenging for me.

When Rob is at work he is gone, he leaves at 5:00 in the morning and does not come home until 9:00 the next morning, and often he is gone for two or three or sometimes 4 days.

I have two small children, and aside from my village of friends, I have no real child care, I don't have family that helps.  When Rob is gone it is just me and my kids. 

Years ago Rob was injured (playing basketball not fighting fires) he was home for months.  I could run every day of the week.  I would have an hour to myself Monday through Friday. 

It was amazing.  It was when I started enjoying running, it was when I first decided to run a full marathon.

This week Rob is taking a class and he is home in the morning, and I get to run.  It is so good.

I set my alarm for an ungodly hour and then I get to spend an hour running with friends. 

It is dark, it is cold, I am tired,  I love it.

Happy Running,
