Pittsburgh Marathon Eve

As I write this blog, it is the Saturday night before the Pittsburgh Marathon. Amanda is there, tucked into her hotel room bed, running gear laid out for tomorrow's race. I should be there. Instead, I'm in Orlando, reflecting on the past year and doing runs like today's. It's such a confusing emotional state-excited for Amanda, jealous that I'm not there, disappointed in my short mileages, thankful that I can even run. So I'm trying to focus all of my tangled feelings into increasing my pace and looking forward. My pace was much better today, but still not where I need it to be. I'm trying to aim for a 5k in either June or July and the St Pete Half in November. For now I need to stay calm and run on. ♥
