So I would be totally surprised if I had any readers left after this post. It’s not like I have been ignoring the blog but it seems that every time I go to write, it seemed that my mind just would come up with something. I guess I have a case of “extreme writer’s block”. Is that even a thing?
I don’t want to keep writing about marathon training as that can get boring real quick. It has consumed most of my life at the moment. My runs are getting faster and by the time I get to the end of the month I start to go further. I am both nervous and scared at this point. I am also excited to see how well I can do this. I have so much support around me. People taking time out of their day to come to the race to cheer me on. I feel I owe it to them and myself to keep going and not stop.
Did I just bore you with a marathon training update? Sorry. 😁
Crossfit is starting to make a difference in my life. My body has never been stronger. I actually have muscles on my arms, my chest is looking more chiseled and less like I have “man boobs”. I was really proud of myself for doing a 155 lb squat clean last week! That’s huge for someone like me. I also think I am ready to try a pull up. My coaches are amazing. Coach Greg, Sharon, and Mike encourage me to do my best. To push my limits and to never give up. I think after my marathon I am going to focus more on crossfit and work up to being able to compete. I think I am ready!
As for the baby… I am not going into too much detail cause I have been working on a post about it. All I will say is that Everly moves a lot! She never stops! My wife has not slept good for the past two weeks and it’s not been the easiest time at our house.
