Long Time No See
So it’s been quite a while since I last updated my blog here, but then again that’s nothing new. Since I last updated United won the Champions League in the most dramatic way possible, even more dramatic I think than ’99. Pittsburgh were outclassed in the Stanley Cup Finals by a resolute Detroit Red Wings and of course I ran my half-marathon.
The unfortunate thing is that I was unable to finish, I got to 11.5mi and pulled up as in mind & body I was unable to push myself that little bit more. I was gutted and felt I let a lot of people down. I know I gave my best and that considering my build up probably went further than some would think but I still wished I could have finished. After I gathered myself and look back I know deep down I couldn’t of gone further but it still doesn’t stop me wishing I had. The weather especially didn’t help, it was gale force and one particular part of the course was uphill and head on into it. Either way I think I’ll take stock and will train a lot longer and try again, I know I can do it and intend on doing so.
To today then and I now have a new sister-in-law as on Friday my brother got married. It was a lovely day in all ways especially the weather which was quite impressive when you consider the weather either side. On the Thursday when we drove up it was raining most of the way and was quite miserable. Come Friday, the day of the wedding, it was glorious sunshine with blue skies. Then Saturday, the drive home was through torrential rain and I was so glad that the good weather was saved for my brothers’ wedding. It was a Quaker wedding, the first I’ve been to, and it was quite lovely and special. The speeches at the meal were funny and entertaining and the dancing and disco at night was a riot. If you’re on Facebook you’ll no doubt have picked up the few pictures of me dancing the night away. It was also a wonderful opportunity to catch up with people I haven’t seen in a long, long time, some whom I unfortunately couldn’t remember. However by the end of the night we’d reminisced and enjoying catching up. It also made me make a resolution of trying to keep in touch as best I can with people.
This coming Tuesday is Cati and I’s 2nd Wedding Anniversary however we’re celebrating it tomorrow as for whatever reason I took the day off and Cati is currently on gardening leave as she is switching jobs. Not sure what we’re doing yet but I’m sure we’ll figure something out and enjoy the time together.
