Most of you know that we’re pretty addicted to long distance running. However, in the past few months, we’ve started to realize that we may be approaching the beginning of the end of the marathoning. Yesterday, after running the Birmingham Half Marathon in 20 degree temperature, and being basically nonfunctional for about 7 hours (Reader Betsy described it best, “You’re like an 8 year old the morning after a sleepover, wailing crying saying, “I’m NOT tired!!!!), we realized that perhaps it’s time to start to slow down (pun intended) on the pastime we love the most. Is it over? No (emum, please don’t send us this blog post when we sign up for our one last quest for Boston). But is it the beginning of the end for the marathoning? Probably. Sigh. Dear pavement (around mile 18), You’ve been good to us. We’ll miss you. What have you had to give up due to age or circumstance that you’ve loved the most?!
