And then...the time changed.

Well faithful readers, it's official!

Husband and I are registered for our very first 5K! I'm excited, nervous, happy, scared, confused, exhilarated. .... [X] all of the above X 10. To be honest, training for this 5K has been a LOT of fun.  We have had our high points and low points, shared laughter, frustration so many words (both kind and ...not-so-much).

To prove that training for this has not always been a fairytale, I will confess to the following conversation from THIS MORNING!

About 1 mile to go

Erin: Man, I really pushed myself today.

Chris: NO! WE DIDN'T!!

Erin: What are you TALKING ABOUT!, I'm covered in sweat, my feet hurt, i'm exhausted!!

- - - Awkward silence - - -

Chris: Are you mad? 
. . . 

Erin: YES! 

. . . pace picks up ...

Silence continues. . . 

Home.

Erin: What's for breakfast. ...

Haha, to be honest. ... I was REALLY mad in the moment. However, as soon as we got home, I got my shoes off (I hate sneakers) I was MUCH happier, and life was good again.

It's one of my favorite things about being married to my best friend on the face of the planet earth. I am able to be 1,000% ME! I don't have to alter anything.

I am safe. 

So,... There you have it.

We are humans, imperfect beings that sure do know how to have fun!
