This month has flown by and it seems like I've hardly had time to draw a breath. Cross country season has been in full swing, meets every week and training every day in between. The end of the grading period at school fell last week, so that's added work and stress. Add on that we're hosting a cross country meet next Tuesday and have been working extra to get ready for that, and it just makes for one really busy month.
Still, as stressful as it's been, I wouldn't trade it for the world. I love teaching these kids. I love working with the cross country team, and I love running. Soon enough, too soon even, things will slow down. Early next month, cross country season will end. On November 9th, our kids will run in state meet and it will all be over until next year.
Luckily though, the Good Lord has given me plenty to keep me busy. This weekend we'll be running the Soaring Wings Half Marathon in Conway, AR. The following weekend, we'll make the trip to Springfield, MO to run Bass Pro Marathon. Then in December, we'll head to Memphis to run the St. Jude Half Marathon. And next year will start off with a bang, knocking out three marathons in the first three months of 2014: Louisiana Marathon in Baton Rouge on January 19th, Mississippi River Marathon on February 8th in Greenville, MS, and Little Rock Marathon on March 3rd right down the road in Arkansas' capitol city.
We're definitely blessed to keep on the road, but I just haven't found time to write much lately.
