A very special thanks

National Married-to-a-Runner Appreciation Day So Mark Remy over at Runner’s World has a great blog entry today, declaring Oct. 25 as National Married to a Runner Appreciation Day. I can’t quite figure out if my wife should appreciate me for being a runner, or I should appreciate her for dealing with my sometimes passionate way of life. Maybe it’s both?

I kid, I kid … I actually think this is a great idea. Everything else we do has a national day, so why a day like this?

I don’t have money for real flowers or a nice meal out right now, but I truly appreciate my wife giving me the time to go for a run on a Monday evening or an early Saturday morning. Training for a race seems so selfish, but truth be told, I wouldn’t be able to do what I do without my wife’s support.

And without my wife, I wouldn’t be able to take silly pictures of myself like this …
