People ask me all of the time, "How are you able to run so much with a full time job and two young kids?"
The answer is very simple
My husband is simply the most wonderful, the most supportive husband and father I could ask for. While we do sometimes have disagreements about how much I should be running in a week (or at a time), he usually just says, "Okay, that's fine." when I tell him that I have a run planned or that I need to get a 3 hour plus 32km run in.
He also never complains about the money I spend on shoes or races or other running gear. He totally knows how much I love this sport (which I took up seriously in 2011 at age 33) and how being able to run helps my (bad) moods and stress levels. If I haven't had a chance to run during the work day, I'll often mention how, "I'd like to get about 6k in tonight." and he mostly pushes me out the door, taking care of washing the dishes and entertaining our boys
We've done quite a bit in our seven years of marriage, but continuing to grow our supportive partnership has been our most important task.
Happy Anniversary, Ken!
