The San Francisco Marathon

The Husband ran the San Francisco Marathon this past weekend and I ... played the role of Runner Wife.  Woke up at 4:45am (which was totally fine by me since it's about the time insomnia hits and wakes me up anyway), drove him to the starting line, came home and tried to sleep a few more hours while he was out running the streets of SF but really just ended up tossing and turning then reading in bed for a bit, then went back to meet him at the finish line.  Pretty easy morning for me, I'd say.

But for him?  Well, he said it was easy, too, which totally blows my mind.  "Running" and "easy" are polar opposites for me.  This is the third time The Husband has run the SF Marathon and each time he gets better and better.  Even though he's two years older now than the last time he ran it, he beat his personal best time by half an hour!  And after the race, while other runners were collapsing to their knees as soon as they crossed the finished line, The Husband says, "That was actually a really fun run!"  Like it was just a casual morning jog and not one of the world's toughest marathons.  I can't tell you how proud I am of this guy.  Not just for beating his personal best time but for his awesome attitude on race day and throughout training - waking up at 5am everyday for five months isn't easy, even for someone who thinks running is fun!  He was committed to improving and worked hard to earn that medal, the smile on his face, and -most importantly- the free beer at the end of the race.  And I couldn't be more proud of him.

  6. Good for you for sticking with it even when it's brutal! Running was always a hard thing for me to get into. I never quite made it to the point where it feels good. ;)
