3.6 dark miles for me. Beautiful moon. Felt good.

Full moon was awesome.

Sad news - girlfriend and I decided to put things on hold after more than a year together. I’m heartbroken. Tossed and turned and only slept about 2 hours last night. This will probably be the right move for both of us, but it still sucks. Especially hard losing my first “post-widowhood” relationship. Run this morning helped give me some needed endorphins. 6 miles.

And now for some beard humor: I grew a beard and then a month later my girlfriend and I broke up. Dammit Bread!

Aw I'm really sorry to hear this, Tim. :hug:

In a tangentially related note: My dad is thinking about dating again. Actually he has tried with a few women and none of them has worked out to his liking so he's finally ready to consider online dating. Hopefully it's fun for him. This whole thing is a nightmare come true for me, but I am old enough to know that it's not about me. :roll:: pbbt:

Thanks Brooke. Out of curiosity: Why do you consider your dad dating to be a nightmare? I will eventually end up in another new relationship - don’t know if it will be 1 month from now, 1 year from now, 5 years from now, or something else. But when the time comes I’ll keep my kids informed a bit - probably just a simple “I’m going on a date, I’ll be back in a few hours” and leave it at that, then be open if they ask any questions. With this first relationship it was too fresh off losing their mom, so I kept it quiet for several months.

Oh well he barely waited for her to be dead 3 months, that's why. I know it's none of my business tho. He's entitled to be happy, whatever that means for him. Sorry I shouldn't have said that - that was selfish of me I didn't mean to make you feel bad. :hug:

Don’t worry - I’m pretty thick-skinned. I asked that more from a curiosity perspective. Even though you’re an adult and my kids are teens, there are probably some common thoughts you all have when your one surviving parent starts dating - basically “WTF?!?!?” This helps me understand my kids a little better, so thanks.

8 miles with a 5-mile progression run in the  middle. Was shooting for 7:00-6:45-6:30-6:15-6:00-5:45 but went 6:39-6:21-6:17-6:06-6:06 and couldn't go any faster so cut it short at 5. Felt really good for the first few miles but kind of crappy for the last 2.

4.5 cloudy miles here. A little sweatier than it's been the past few days but it still felt good. :happy:

benji and I ran 3.35 miles under the moon Thursday morning. the first mile w/ the 13yo and then the rest of it on our own. we saw 1 walker, 1 dog and we parted a cross country team like Moses and the Red Sea. they were just finishing up their run and were milling about with their coaches on the sidewalk when we went through - Benji got a lot of "awww...how cutes" as we went through. :cool:

There's been much adulting in my life lately so I've been a blob for the past week. Finally going to the gym at lunch today after 7 or 8 days off. Gonna do some stuff but I don't know what stuff yet. : pbbt:

Happy Thursday,

Did some random weight stuff in the gym - squats, back, other stuff.   Kind of a 70's retro workout on the ancient universal machines too.

4.1 miles did a treadmill speedworkout.  5x800 w/ 1:15 recovery.  Watched the blue angels swooping past the bay bridge while I did the workout.  Workout felt good but damn am I tired.
