Ben's "I don't want to go to school facial expression" last night after his bath! Yes, this morning we were forced to get back into the "normal" school/work hussle routine!!!! Yep! Jump out of bed in the morning and it is go, go, go!!!
Yep, Kindergarten is tough! Need-less-to-say, first day back after spring break was EXHAUSTING for Ben! Crashed on the coach as soon as we walked through the door! So, I used the time to wash lunch box dishes, take a bath, write this blog, feed the dog, etc..... When he wakes up, there is still homework to do!!!!
As you all know, I am a BIG Hal Higdon fan!!! And, these spoken words are so true!!! Running has taught me that my mind and body are much stronger than I think! I was turned onto Hal Higdon by a dear friend of mine who is a FABULOUS runner!!! I follow his training plans and they work for me! Plus, Hal is pretty cool!! I follow him on Facebook and have message him from time to time... AND GUESS WHAT?!? He actually responds!!! Pretty cool in my book! I even signed up for my last half marathon in Tallahassee, FL because he was speaking at the expo!!!! I like to think of this as being a HUGE supportive fan and not so much a stalker!!! LOL!!!! I even got a signed copy of his marathon training book!!!
I was over the moon!!! Plus, this is the half marathon where I PR'D!!! Just meant to be I guess!!!! Was a spontaneous sign up when I found out Hal was going to be there!!! :)
And when you have the hussle of everyday life, it is true that you could be come a bit crazy or stress....... and that is why, runners are addicted to running!!!! Runners "get it!"
How was getting back in to the routine after spring break? Tough? Or did the groove come right back?
Do you have running idol that has lead your training and love for running?
Did you run today? I managed 3 miles this morning on treadmill.... then it was go! Go! go!
Hope you had a GREAT Tuesday!!!! Have a great rest of the day!!! Until later.......
