I am a girl who loves mountains, changing seasons, running, true backpacking, strong coffee, and knitting with high quality yarn.
When something bad happens, you have three choices: let it define you, let it destroy you, or let it strengthen you.
The purpose of life is to discover and develop your gift. The meaning of life comes from sharing your gift with others. - David Viscott

Latest runs and such.
Saturday I guess I can call a day off. We drove off for 9 hrs to take Alex to his new home. I won't go into details, but I actually liked the setting and what this scholl provides. So the whole day was very draining emotionally for all of us. I called the school today, and he is OK, safe and sound.
Sunday was spent driving back, but I did make it on time to put a 3 hr run, finishing in a dark. Needed to clear up my mind. Even managed to do a few 15 min pick ups, and the last 7 miles were spent on roads at a very swift pace.
Looks like Oleg and I have a hard time adjusting to the whole change and blame game, and will need to work on our attitude. Not a bad idea from him - to start working on ourselves and our relashionship first. Been married for over 16 years and everyday tasks leave us with little romance and why are we actually doing it. He is right. Everything had become dull and not interesting. We got sucked in to a sleep-work-drive-run-eat-sleep routine, and the excitement got lost in a process. Now we need to find it again. Suggestions? From singles and those wh kept the spark alive after years together?
