Another runner in the house?

Last spring, Boyfriend got into cycling. It started out just him wanting to ride his bike to work but he liked it so much, that quickly turned into much more. He started riding 15-20 miles or more a day. He completed the MS 150 in September. I cheered him on like the loving girlfriend I am. Me, ride 150+ miles? No, thanks. Perfectly happy with sprint distance triathlons!

This is how I do 150 miles on a bike. Seated. In the shade. With a cold beverage. Taking selfies.

When he said he was going to sign up for one of my favorite races, Ultramax Shamrox 5K/15K on St Pat’s weekend, I was thrilled! I love sharing my passion of running. Before Christmas, we bought him shoes and he got some nice Under Armor cold gear pants because, duh, it’s cold. And so far, I’ve gotten him out for one training run.

I blame the weather. Yes.

Today was a wake up call. We are two months out from Shamrox. It’s not going to train for itself! So this was my mission tonight…


The plan is written. Bigger than the “will he complete it” question, is the question of “will we complete training with our relationship in tact?”

As usual, I’ll keep you updated.
