Marathon Man

Well, this has been a very busy day as I have had to grade exams for a good portion of it, but I am glad that it is now over.  Ben has just been a very goofy kid lately.  When I put him to Bed last night, the first time I did it since I took his pacifier away, he looked at me, smiled, and said “paci?”  I told him that it was “in the garbage” and that he “told me it was OK”.  Just then Ben had a real goofy grin on his face and said “paci” once again, as if to say to me, “well, at least I HAD to try”.  Ben then went to bed without complaint.  After Jet left for work today, Ben was real grumpy as he had recently woke up from his afternoon nap and had a horse cough since yesterday.  Ben walked up to me with two pairs of “Thomas” underwear and insisted that I put them both on for him.  I did, with both pairs outside of his pants.  He was happy, I was fine with it.  Ben didn’t complain the rest of the night.  I would have done it over again in a heartbeat.

Jet is about ready to book our flights to Thailand.  From what she has told me, I think we will be leaving on April 30 and returning July 10.  I also have to book my registration for the Country Music Marathon by tomorrow to get a $10 discount.  I am not sure if I mentioned that I plan to run a marathon with Sup, but that is the goal.  I have always wanted to run a marathon, but have always come up with excuses each time I began to train.  With a running buddy, hopefully that will not be the case.  Sup has already run two marathons in Milwaukee, so hopefully his experience will come in handy.  I am shooting for 4 hours, which is roughly 10 minute miles, so I hope I can stick to that.  Sup and I began running this week and plan to train every Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday or Sunday.  Again, I hope that we can stick to that.  The run looks like it will be a lot of fun and will be just before we leave for Thailand, so that is something to look forward to.
