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?
. . .
. . . pace picks up ...
Silence continues. . .
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!
