Some days are better than others. I didn’t know how today was going to start, but so far so good. Started today by tossing and turning, although that is almost every day these days. I didn’t sleep well. Not sure exactly why, but I think it’s because my mind just won’t turn off. We had a short race (5k) this morning and I felt good but it wasn’t easy. I’m certainly not in any shape to tun a half marathon in a month. However, I think I’ll look and feel better than I do now. It’s getting a bit nicer out and we are almost (thank god) out of February.
I hate February. It’s cold. It’s dark. No one has Christmas lights on their homes any more and it’s not my birthday. Hahaha. Also, I think I always have high expectations of Valentine’s Day… not sure why we even do that crazy holiday at all really. It’s a bit crazy to think that there is only one day to tell someone “I Love You”.
I was able to take my wife of a ride on the bike today. We were a bit cold and it did seem rushed, but it’s these moments when I get to steal her away from the rest of the world that I will remember (or at least try to) in the future. We rode along the river and then stopped in a little cafe and talked for a minute. It was fleeting, but nice. I felt strong. I felt like she wanted to be with me. It felt good. It is now, as I am writing this, as if there is a slight stage of euphoria and I could close the chapter to the day on that feeling.
So I will do just that.
