Chris and I are celebrating 9 years of marriage today. The past nine years have taken us from Boston (where we met) to Ohio (where I went to grad school and Chris taught 4th grade) to Romania to sort out my visa, (where I did research, applied for my psychology residency in US and Canada, Chris taught math an an international school, and we got pregnant), to New Castle, NH (where we lived with Chris's mom for a couple of months) and then back to Boston (where we had Petru, I completed my residency and am currently working) and Arlington (where we bought a house 2 years ago). What a ride! Through it all, Chris has never stopped making me laugh every single day....can't beat that!
I had a tempo run today, 3 miles easy + 2 miles @ 7:14 + 3 miles easy = 8. The run went well, though I procrastinated it as long as I could...and the gray skies and rain (yes, rain again) did not help me get out of the house quickly. It was an OK run , not super (like Monday's speedwork). For some reason, I have a much harder time with tempo runs than with long runs or speed work. I think my legs were tired today, and that made the run more challenging. I can run 3 miles @ 7:06 after swimming and biking, yet I struggle with 2 little miles at a slower pace. ..
Here are the stats:
3 miles @ 8:20; 2 miles tempo @ 7:10; 2.5 miles @ 8:24; .5 mile @ 9:00.
-leaf clover, that is! I found it on my run today! I use to spend hours as a child looking for them, and now my eye is trained and I keep finding these little guys everywhere I go. I make cards and little frames with them - I have over 100 at this point!
Celebration, run and four leaf clover - a good day indeed!
