Today I am thankful for determination. Meaning, it was kinda cold and rainy out today, but I wanted to run. I knew that I was going to have to get out and do it. There are definitely going to be times during marathon training where I have no interest in getting out and running. It will be cold, snowy, and potentially even icy. And I am going to have to get out there and run. And today, I did. I got out there and I ran. I ran more than 6 miles. I have some work to do as far as increasing my mileage, and I want to do one 9 miler before training officially starts, but today felt good.
And I am quite proud of myself for getting it done!
Last night we went to go see J’s dad. It was his birthday, so we just went over there for a few hours. There was not a whole lot going on there, just Forrest Gump on TV, and some family members hanging out and watching the movie, chatting. It was pretty good this time, which is good because sometimes we struggle spending a lot of time with them. I know it might be wrong of us to say, but they both smoke, and so sometimes being over there is tough in and of itself.
I am making lasagna for J and I for dinner together tonight. It is our three month wedding anniversary, so a nice home cooked meal plus some champagne will go well for a small celebration. 1/4 of a year down, the rest of our lives to go! Lol! We did have a nice loaf of french bread to go with it, but Teek ate half of it. Some how my tiny little 8 lbs dog managed to get up to the kitchen counter to get the loaf down and eat it! WTF? And to be honest, I do not want to go back to the store to get another one, so I might just make some biscuits. Maybe I will sprinkle them with a little garlic or parmesan to try and make them seem to go with the lasagna a little bit more?
Wish me luck, I am off to cook!
