Slow and Steady...

The Mister and I both ran the Pier House 5K in Long Branch this past Monday (Labor Day).  He is as fast as I am slow...his time was under 22 minutes (!!) while mine was more than 30.  I look absolutely pained in the photo.  A natural athlete I'm not!  We high-fived after he hit the turnaround and started back on the course while I was still slogging toward the 1/2 way mark.  Then, after he crossed the finish, he circled back to keep me company till I made it to the end.  It's a great allegory for marriage/partnership in general...make the effort to circle back and show your commitment to your "team".  Thank you, Mister, for circling back. During the race and life in general.  xoxo
