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.
