from one runner to another pass it on

Work, Kids, School and Running

These past 4 months, running has taken a distant last place in my life. I went back to college after 21 years off, my daughter made an elite traveling volleyball team and the overtime at work has been through the roof. Running went from 6 times a week to 4 to 3 to 1.

I must say it has been tough. Gained more than a few pounds, but it was worth it. After having nightmares of going back to college and failing, I was able to get an A in my first class back, Clinical Psychology. It will be slow going to get that degree as I won’t be able to take more than 1 or 2 classes a semester to pull down those last 40 credit hours. I will take it as it comes and maybe get in a few miles along the way.

Any way to improve one’s life is worth the struggle, be it by land or by textbook.
