OMG, I find this very hard to believe, but I am actually entering a fun run/walk on Sunday! DH is running a half marathon and instead of sitting in the car knitting like I usually do, I am going to enter the 5km walk. No, I won't be running. I don't run, but as I have been doing so much walking, I thought I might as well fill in the time by walking instead of sitting. When I told DH he almost fell off the chair and then came over to me to see if I had a temperature and was delusional. But no, I was sane and cool at the temple so he realised I wasn't kidding.
DH has been running for years, mainly because he loves to run. Anyway we all know the story of me not being well, deciding to become healthier and gradually starting to walk more and more. No, he wasn't pushing me at all. In fact, even though he runs a lot he eats quite unhealthily (when he can get away with it) and doesn't try to encourage me to run at all. He enjoys the loneliness of long distance running.
So we are leaving at 6am on Sunday (the run/walk is 160kms away), after eating pancakes for breakfast, and he will start his run an hour before my walk starts and we should finish about the same time. Unless I decide to enter the 10km walk! How exciting!
