My husband has been traveling a lot lately. When he's gone I'm a single (married), working mother of 3 small, active little girls. Time is in short supply (which is why I haven't posted a blog in awhile!). There never seems to be enough hours in the day to get done what needs to get done.
As I took off for my long run last weekend, I passed a duo of ladies finishing up their run and overheard this: Lady runner #1, “Wow! I never thought I would be able to run 8 miles!”Lady runner #2, “I knew you could! Great job today!” I smiled to myself, because thoughts and conversations like this are so common among runners, beginner or experienced.
