Daughter's birthday party (theme - Donuts) was fun for the girls. My wife did a great job I was just there for support and some cleanup. Her afternoon soccer game was cancelled because of the rain. It would have been brutal anyway.

I got to Hendersonville and the traffic was awful so I bailed and did not pick up my race packet. Amending... I was going to plant the garden today. They are calling for possible hail tomorrow so, no, my baby seedlings do not deserve that fate. I will think of something else to do. Garden planting on Monday or after.

Ugh - look at that yellow week! I feel so lazy, but the weather and the stress just got to me this week. 
Went out for dinner with some friends last night, which was just what the doctor ordered. Chilled me out after my stress freakout about the show yesterday afternoon. Slept in this morning. Feeling much more human now!! 
Aspen has a volleyball tournament this afternoon, and I've got to get my bike on the trainer at some point today. Still snowing.

My roommate has officially moved out. It was something that had been on the horizon for awhile, but it still kind of took me by surprise (in a non-surprising way, if that makes any sense). 
For the past 7-8 months she hadn't been spending much time here, so it's not like it's going to change much, but still, the house feels empty. And there won't be the stop-in's to pick up some clothes for the weekend or anything like that. She'll still be training a few clients here and since her client-base is all in this area (as opposed to her girlfriend's house where she moved to), she's still going to stop here for lunch to feed and walk Belle .... so it's not like she's entirely gone. Still, I'm feeling a touch lonely.
I'll be fine. Just a change to adapt to and move forward.
So, no activity yesterday except moving stuff. Which I count for at least a little something.

I ran 169 miles in the month of April! I think that is my highest month ever. Go me!

We went to a social for a new mtb group --- we were some of the older people there but everyone was very welcoming.

It's supposed to rain most of the weekend but I've got ambitious plans to get my tomato plants in as well as a couple of planters. Out in the little garden, the spinach, lettuce and beets are growing nicely. We are also trying onion sets this year. Easy peasy stuff.

Back outside this morning for as much work as I can get in before the rain hits.

Looking at the last 12 months, this month I ran the 3rd most miles.   I'm quite proud of this, considering the slow start.  Now to work on consistency.

Figured out it's the different rear wheel that's making all the noise on my rollers, not the new drum. Now to be not too lazy to change back to my trainer tire every time I want to ride indoors... :-P

Oh man!  Spent the day riding roller coasters and was good until The Bat.  Then spent the rest of the day riding and trying to keep my lunch in my stomach.  My roller coaster days may be over.  Just resting now and trying to recover.  I guess my sunscreen was dated as I burned my face :(  Leaning towards accepting the job offer.  I have more questions before I do though.  It was too rushed to give an answer yesterday.

Yesterday the depression and self-doubt started anew. My wife flat out said that she did not feel that I was making an effort to improve my health so that we can have a better chance of having a baby. In my heart I know I could do better. I have not been eating very healthy, but to say it in the midst of an argument was very hurtful, whether it is true or not.

In my heart I feel responsible for the misery our family has passed through in the last two years. Then to hear my wife say that I was not trying hard enough just rubbed the salt in the wound.

I dragged myself out for a run today. It was very hard and I need to remember how hard it is so i am better this week as I prepare to tackle 14 miles next Saturday. My right knee has gotten progressively worse, then at some point I started to focus on my foot strike and letting it hit naturally in the midfoot to heel and it went away. I have been trying to adopt a more forefoot/midfoot footstrike and I wonder if my body is simply te[...]

I thought I had to get the swim in during the 7:45 till 9 slot, but I guess last week the lessons ended so I could have done it all at once.
