Life happens!!

Well my training have been interrupted since school and football season began trying to make the best of it. Summer was great as long as I got out the door by 6:00AM I could still get in 2 hours of running and not be late for work. Now its total chaos, I have to run base on my son Kelly schedule . When Elliott was home I would never have to worry about him being ready to go as soon as I get in from my runs. Kelly is another story, I have to be sure to be home at least 10 mins before its time to go, most mornings he is still in bed when I get back and to avoid traffic we need to leave the house by 7:05AM.

I am also having trouble getting out the door before six lately, I think I've gotten too accustom to my free spirit summer schedule. I've manage to get in a few runs during Kelly's football practice, unfortunately they do not have a steady schedule, on day practice starts after school, the next day at 5:oopm. Although I should stop working at 4:30pm that is when my day ends, I'm never out of work that early. If he practice after school, I have to be there to get him home between 5-530. If practice is not until 5:00pm, I have to leave work by 4:30 to get him there on time. I going crazy but handling it the best I way I can.

Suck it up Dawn, this is life!!!

You guys are the best and thank you so much for all your suggestions. They will not go unheard. I have to go pick my son up now. Today practice was at 5:00 rushed home took him over to the field, came back, put dinner in the oven, change and went for a run!! came back put the rest of dinner on stove, did new blog entry. I'll be back!!

Sounds like you should run around the field while he practices and then get take-out...that's what I would do, anyway.

I seriously don't know how you do it. Seriously. Traffic in the tri-state area is so bad and it just makes everything harder.
Keep on truckin! You'll get used to the new schedule soon!

Keep running when your schedule allows it - but let your body enjoy the rest. Don't stress about missing days - but these moments with your kids only happen once and your body will probably appreciate the break!

I don't have kids yet and have noticed the past few weeks bluring together. I can't imagine if I had your schedule!!

Hang in there & just enjoy the ride!

I was just reflecting on how life interupted my running this week and I realized for better or for worse, I need to find a way to just enjoy it all and go with the and sneak in the miles whenever I can.
