My Husband Rocks!

The picture is of Chloe and Doug in Boston in October.  I have to say that my husband is amazing.  We have been planning our move to Miami for over a year now.  Doug works out of Miami and commutes there from our home in Dallas.  He has done that for over two years now so that his youngest son, Dylan could finish up HS with his friends.  We have met with the Realtor a few times and the plan was that he would come over yesterday and we would sign the papers to finally put the house on the market in May.  Well...New Plan.  Doug and the Realtor decided that we should put the house on the market pronto.  So as I am packing to leave for Boston, organizing race gear with regular clothes and packing all of Chloes stuff, I am now madly trying to paint in the kitchen and living room and clean and everything else.  And I have to admit there was a point yesterday when I was getting really stressed and Doug said "what is the issue." I told him we are doing this right before Boston and if the house sells tomorrow I won't be able to train for Phili and honestly those are big goals for me.  The guy rocks.  I just told him I was basically a total selfish twit and he comes back at me with: we will work around those races and training, nothing will interfer with them and gives me a hug.  He also said, I should know how much he loves that I train so hard and he wouldn't want to take away from it.  Come on... He is amazing.  He totally got it and was awesome about it.  Did I say that I Love my Husband?  If I didn't then I am saying it now.  I love Doug.  He really gets me and I don't know how someone would understand what goes on in this head of mine but somehow he gets it.  Happy Running all.  I am off to finish packing and take Chloe on a playdate. 

Oh and one more thing wanted to say: GO MARNY, on her first ultra this weekend.  GO HEATHER, on her first tri this weekend, GO PAULA, at her first Adventure Race this weekend, GO CARRIE, at her 1/2 this weekend and GO JENNA, at her first 5K.  The Running Moms are out in full force all over the US this weekend, WATCH OUT!  :)
