We just got home from a wonderful weekend in Boston - where I attended my Doctoral Hooding ceremony and graduation. And, where we celebrated our 34th wedding anniversary!
The funny thing is, that after three years of reduced running, I'm finding it hard to get my enthusiasm for racing back. I still love my early morning runs, and I still get out there five mornings a week, but I haven't felt an urge to race. I don't think I mentioned it, but the Saturday after I defended, I participated in the Redmond 12 hour, where I logged 39.5 miles - not too bad considering my lack of training. I also signed up for the Ghost of Seattle marathon, but I'm still thinking about dropping to the half. Who knows? For now, I'll enjoy those morning runs and see where they take me.
