A little Sad...

Well, I should be in Richmond right now fast asleep getting ready to run my marathon...but...not to happen this year. I'm still very disappointed but know I made the correct choice.

I can't believe how fast a year has come. I signed up for tomorrows marathon 1 year ago today. Man how time just flew on by. Well, one of the reasons I'm still in South Carolina and not Richmond is because of the decision to head back to school. This week was especially difficult with two mid-terms and one lab test. I escaped with some really good marks and overall I'm very pleased, just wish I was in Richmond. Work was especially busy this week too, with no shortage of work the days are short. Hence the reason that year flew by so fast!:) Hopefully things will start to slow down after Thanksgiving.

Gracie's cousins from LA are in town until next week and she is having a blast. I haven't been able to visit with them too much due to my busy schedule but should get some good time this weekend. We did all go out to eat tonight and we had a great time. I had some frozen yogurt with peanuts that was really yummy!:) Ashli has yet to download the pics from Halloween but hopefully I can convince her to do that this weekend so I can post some good pics of the fun time we had.

I have yet to get any good running in and this is by far the longest I've gone without any mileage in a year and one month. I've been doing a good job of getting in at least 3 days a week of strength/core work and flexibility, I'm lacking in the flexibility department and decided to work on a 3 day a week flexibility program. My diet has been less then perfect but overall not terribly bad. Just trying to maintain until Thanksgiving and then I'm going to really buckle down and work on some very specific weight loss goals to get myself in gear for 2008.

Well, I wish all those that are running tomorrow best wishes for a great race and a solid finish. I will be there in spirit and will run that race in my mind. I know the course well and will be thinking about it all day tomorrow. Just wish I was there, man I'm bummed out! Oh well life goes on and the next race will be here before I know it.

Peace Out - Jason

You'll be at that marathon. I have had to make those same decisions with school and running and school definitely takes priority.

aw, I'm sorry you are a little sad :| It's understandable. You big "M" day will come -- I've been thinking about it myself lately..perhaps in 2008

I know you'll get to the start line, even if it takes a bit longer than you originally thought. You'll make it!

I am so sorry, but know in your heart that you'll cross that finish line soon... when all cards fall into place.

Sometimes the best decision is the hardest to make. You'll be out there someday, bro. Put first things first...
