my backwards walk

This past week, I decided that I am going to skip running in this year’s Akron Marathon. Instead, I am going to just be a spectator, cheering on Kristy as she runs her very first half-marathon. While I was doing pretty well with keeping up with my training plan, I just wasn’t feeling it. Over the past year, my running has kind of plateaued, and I’ve really been struggling to break through and get to the next level. I’m not there yet, so I think it’s better for me to just keep my race registration fee in my pocket this time around, and keep on pushing. I am not stopping my running though, and plan to continue going out Sunday mornings with Kristy to do long runs. But come September 27th, I’ll be lacing up my shoes for the purpose of running around Akron with my camera to hopefully capture some pictures of Kristy.
Speaking of running around, the wedding is now 8 days away, and things are starting to get slightly hectic. There have been a few unexpected snags and things that have arisen over the past week to add to the already inevitable stress. We’ve definitely learned that no matter how small the wedding, there is still plenty to worry about. But we’re trying to not let it get to us and enjoy this time in our lives. We’re having another couple over tonight, which I believe will mark the first time I’ve cooked dinner for other people. Hopefully they enjoy my cooking as much as Kristy claims to. I’ll be making one of my favorite dishes, Rigatoni with Sausage, Peppers and Onions from Giada De Laurentiis’ “Everyday Italian”.
