Here’s to you, Gladys Knight…I really gotta use my imagination…for a better blog post title! 😉

Friends, I ran today, and though I felt completely sluggish the entire time, I did a good distance with a decent pace.  I was pleasantly surprised. I didn’t get 20 minutes down yet.  It’s going to be a while.  So, instead of trying to run until I get the 20 minutes down, I’m going to finish out the days of Couch to 5k that are interval runs…and then try to run 20…then 25…then 28…the finally 30 minutes straight. I know I can do it…I just need to do it in a manner that my body will let me.

SO, I found out that I’m going to be a dad TOMORROW. Like, yes, we’re going to the hospital and Ms. Fat Guy (who is, not-so-ironically, neither fat, nor a guy) will be induced and hopefully our little boy (whom we sometimes lovingly refer to as Chico) will arrive quickly and without too much discomfort. Wish us luck!

Since we’re not going to have our last date like we had hoped for, we’re going to choose one of our favorite teenage girl, soccer movies…either Bend It Like Beckham or She’s The Man…to watch tonight (JohnT if you’re reading this, remember I told you my man card was taken from me a long time ago…slowly, but surely, I’ll get it back).

I know everyone who reads this might not be religious (or a Christian for that matter), but I hope you’ll indulge me in sharing something with you that has kept me going all these weeks…

But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run and not be weary; and they shall walk and not faint.  –Isaiah 40:31

Here’s to running and not being weary!!

OK, guys…this post was replete with my ADD, so I’ll stop here. Hope your weeks are off to great starts and I’ll be back as soon as the little guy is here!
