We did something pretty huge yesterday! We closed on our first house!!
We started looking right after Grant was born at the end of March, so it’s been a pretty long process. However, what they say is right – everything works out exactly how it is supposed to. We got the perfect house for us to grow our family, and we couldn’t be more thrilled. I see lots of painting and house projects in our future. It’s a great thing we aren’t afraid of rolling up our sleeves a bit to get some work done.
We did a ton of painting this past weekend since the sellers of the house were nice enough to let us in a little early to start. Before we dove into painting, I had my last 20 miler to hammer out of my marathon training plan. I woke up early Saturday morning to get it done, and was done by 8am! It felt great to get the run completed before everyone else even woke up in my house. Now, only 18 more days until I toe the start line of the Best Damn Race Cape Coral Marathon. I’m so excited to get back in the racing environment, especially for 26.2 miles! A friend sent this to me this morning and it couldn’t be more applicable right now.
Isn’t that awesome?! Pain is inevitable. Suffering is optional. So so true!!
Before marathon race day, I’m up for the 10k Turkey Trot on Thursday. It’s my 11th consecutive year running this race. Can’t wait for another great year!
Anyone else running a race on Thanksgiving to start the day off on the right foot?
