Going to the Chapel

Yup, I'm getting married.....  Again.

I never realized before I met my fiance that love is really not supposed to be so difficult.  So, when he asked, I couldn't wait to say YES.  We aren't wasting any time, either.  The wedding will be March 29.

Now, because we all know that I have to put all kinds of undue pressure on myself, this falls right in line with the rest of my calendar.

March 29:  Wedding
March 31-April 7:  Honeymoon (Maui!!!)
April 19:  Kentucky Derby Marathon
May 3:  OneAmerica 500 Festival Mini-Marathon (Indianapolis)

The fiance is pretty stoked about these races, too.  He's even been running with me even though he's never really been a runner before (with the exception of the last month or so, I'll tell you about that in a minute).  So, no matter how hard I try to convince myself that I should just skip the marathon on April 19, he's not going to let me.  Urg.
Dam him for being so dang supportive.

Anyhow, we had been doing really well earlier this year.  Going to the gym and running on alternate days, worked up to a 12 mile long run, getting stronger and faster.  Well, and then this winter happened.  There came a point in time where I just couldn't take the cold and the snow and the cold cold cold.  All I wanted to do was stay in bed until the last possible moment when I had to get to work, then come home and put on something warm and fluffy and go to bed and hibernate.  The cold got me down, too.  I just can't stay happy when I can't stand to step outside.  So, I've been a bit of a slug for the past 4-6 weeks.

Now, I only have a few more weeks until it's marathon time, with a wedding and a vacation stuck in there.  Everything may not be perfect, but it's going to happen, and I'll be happy no matter what.  Ha!

I've been an engineer for 17 years and never had an interest in dating an engineer.  Ever.
I'm marrying........     an engineer.
