Army Ten-Miler

It was a beautiful day to run the Army Ten-Miler.  The weather was perfect.  As you can see from the pictures, we earned our finishers medal.  Now, I need to properly train for next year.

Let's Do It Again

Today, we pickup our bib numbers for the Army Ten-Miler.  My number is 25099, not sure of hubby's number.   We two of the 30,100 registered for this year.  We ran together in 1994, and my number was 4334, which goes to show the gradual increase of runners over the last 18 years.  It has been a long time since we have run this race together, but we are going to do it again, Sunday!  I think we can gut out 10-miles.  The last Army Ten-Miler I ran was in 2010, slipped, and fell at mile 9.  I quickly recovered although I had a nasty gash on my chin and left shoulder.  I hope to have a better time of it this year.  The weather is supposed to be nice. I hope so.  See the picture of us back in the day.  We were almost at the finish line.

We all have so much to say, so I thought I would join the conversation and capture the goings on in my life at home without children. Our youngest son is away at college, and our older son is two hours south of DC in technical school.  Lord, I pray he can graduate soon.  So, the bottom line is our house is empty.  I swore that I would not fall into the empty nest syndrom of being sad that my children have left home and going about their lives.  That is what I did some years ago....So, I am focusing on the next phase of life.  From what I hear, it is supposed to be fun! My husband and I can actually run around the house in our birthday suits, play house, hang out late (not really), and who all knows whats in store. So, the nest is not exactly empty, because we are still here and full of life! So here is to living the life after children.

More to follow!
