Well it has been a while. So what’s been going on??
I have to be honest, after the marathon about 6 weeks ago, I flat out had no desire to run. I took about 2 weeks completely off with the only running being soccer practice with the kids. The idea of going out and running around my neighborhood was not appealing at all. At one point I was seriously wondering if I would ever get my motivation back.
After a few weeks I forced some runs but they didn’t feel enjoyable at all. Lucky for me, I have a pretty big ego and it was only a matter of time before things started to get back on track. A big step was a couple weeks ago when a good buddy invited me out for a late night run. He wants to get back in shape and needed someone to run with. Well of course I couldn’t let my good buddy see me struggling with some laps around the track lol. I forgot my watch but threw down a couple miles while also throwing in some bleachers just to add some extra effort. A couple days later I got out super early and ran the mountain before work. I hit the summit and was completely alone and the peace I felt while sitting high above the city reminded me why I loved running. Since then I’ve slowly started to get things back on track.
We have been super busy since the kids started spring sports so I’m sorry I haven’t been caught up on the blog world. I plan to start posting again and catching up with all of you to see how your running is going.
I also wanted to invite all of you to participate in Mrs. Schlub’s second official race. We are hosting it here in AZ but also hosting it virtually so anyone can participate.
We had a really good friend that passed away while battling cancer last year and left behind a wonderful family. The First Annual Andy’s Run was to directly support our friend Andy and his family while he was battling cancer. Very sad to say that he lost his battle but we all choose to never forget his strength, courage, and faith. It was truly a blessing to know this man and see him impact so many people while he was going through an incredibly difficult disease. So next month Mrs. Schlub is hosting the Second Annual Andy’s Run and in Andy’s memory we will be donating all the funds to a mother and son who are both currently battling cancer. They were also very close to Andy and are truly an amazing family. You can read about the family and sign up below:
Hope some of you can make it and support this amazing family. For those that it’s all about the bling, yes we will have finisher’s medals lol. We will be happy to mail those to you in the coming weeks. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
Feels good to be chatting with all of you again!!
