where do I even begin? It's been almost 2 months since my last post. 2 months. What have I been doing for the past 2 months? Let me fill you in...
Nick is home!
I brought Nick home July 21st, and he's been home so long now that it feels like he never left. We've frolicked in Mexico for a week (happy 1yr anniversary to us!), played in the sand of Wrightsville beach (for the 1st time in 5 years... since the day we loaded up the moving truck and headed to TN), and just enjoyed every single moment of being together again. I don't know how I ever survived 8 months without him.
I'm 1 week away from my 1st half marathon.
I briefly skimmed my previous posts before writing this, and I must admit I giggled every time I read about my running. The last time I mentioned my training I was barely surviving 2-3 mile runs, and now my easy runs are 5+ miles. My long runs on Saturday are 10-12 miles, and although painful at times I always make it. It's amazing to see the progress I've made in just a few short months. On Saturday I will run the Women's Half Marathon and finally reach my goal! (I've also lost a few more pounds, not that I'm counting or anything :)
Big changes are on the horizon... hopefully.
Nick and I have spent a lot of the last 2 months thinking, and planning, and getting ready for where life will take us next (and no, I'm not pregnant). We have a lot of big plans, and for now I'm crossing my fingers that everything falls in place the way we need it to. When things become a little more definitive, I'll be happy to share.
I feel like I should have a lot more to say after such a long hiatus, but my mind has gone completely blank. Stay tuned for pictures from Mexico and details on readjusting after the deployment. It feels good to be back!
