I have mentioned his upcoming race here and there but I don't think I officially blogged about it. My reasons for not saying much are quite pathetic now that I think about it. I really do try to stick to the theme of my blog but today I am going to stray slightly (although there is running in here) and say things are rocky between dear hubby and me. I have faith we will overcome our hurdles in life but it is because of the rockiness that I haven't blogged his goals. Plus my blog is generally more focused on my running.
The heart of the problem is that men and women do communicate differently. I know, I am "blaming" the textbook excuse but it is true. I do offer more advice than I should and I can see now that it makes him feel bad. I guess it is true that he takes my advice as me saying, "I don't trust you can do this." That isn't the case but let's not go down that road.
On the 22nd my dear hubby will be attempting his 1st marathon. This is from a guy who said he would never run a marathon. We all know never rarely means never, right? I really don't know what his motivator is besides him telling me once or twice or three times or more that he was tired of being on the sidelines all the time. Cool! Although the sensitive woman in me would love to hear that he would stand on the sidelines all day supporting my running. In my attempt to make positive change in our relationship I have held back all okay almost all unsolicited advice, comments, questions, etc. Why? Besides I want him to feel confident in his run, to take ownership of his run, and I am just trying to do the right thing.
Today I am grateful for:
- My health
- Daily Mile comments and inspiration
- Product reviews to share and to read
