Not a runner favorite 3 letters put together.
It's happening this weekend for me.
No RnR San Diego. I had to pull out.
I am not injured. I am not trained but that is not the reason for the DNS.
Reason : husband crazy job schedule.
He is once again in a crappy overworked situation working an average of 16 hrs per day and getting paid for half of these:(
The last few months have been difficult.
I have been doing everything alone...house, kids, puppy...working...
Time for me and for running has been limited. It is not a priority and I have to sacrifice for now.
I am grateful he does have a job yes...of course...but we have zero quality of family life.
We are both exhausted and stressed out. So time to look for a better situation, much easier to look for another job while having one.
I feel lost without running. No balance and pretty frustrated. That DNS is hard to take.
I won't be in the best of mood come Sunday I know that for sure.
So now I am not training for anything. It's weird. I don't like it. I run when I can even if it's just 3 miles. I take all the miles I can get in.
I will go in summer racing mode: 5 and 10k only. The 5k with the kids and the 10k for me.
Hopefully things will get better at home over the summer and we will have some "normal" back in our lives soon.
School has been out for a week now.
I could not be more proud of my two sons.
They both had excellent school year again.
My older son had a really hard and demanding year..way too much work and a very strict teacher..it was hard...and he got straight As all 3 trimesters, one of only 3 kids in his class who achieved that out of 34 kids. I am amazed and relieved that he still loves school :). Both my kids were very sad on the last day of school....they both love school and that makes me so happy and hopeful for their future.
End of school means no working for me until at least August 4th. I am not sure what will happen with work...I am hoping that I will continue to work at the school, I really like it a lot. I was sad to see the 6th graders leave...some of them are really great interesting cool kids.
Because of Bill's work situation we cannot go back to visit my family this year....2 years in a row of not going back..that is not easy... We have decided to stay in California and take a short vacation next week. The days were approved for Bill so we are going to San Francisco and Yosemite for 5 days. Road trip! I am looking forward to just be together and making new happy memories. I have been to SF only once and it was 14 years ago and I have never been to Yosemite so it will be great.
The boys are vey excited, Will learned all about the gold rush so he is looking forward to this trip!
I read blogs still....I am there even if I don't comment much....still following your adventures and your steps ....
Thanks for sticking around and for reading...
What are your summer plans?
