Weekly Update

This week has been a semi-back to normal week since the marathon schedule wise. We've been back to running 4 to 5 miles after work, but it's starting to get hotter and more buggy which is not too fun, but we're still going. We at least don't hate running since doing 26.2 miles!

The main thing that happened this week, and I feel really weird writing about it on a blog because people you don't even know may read this, and it just kind of makes what happened really impersonal and just words...was a very sad accident with one of my best friends, Kristina's, husband. He passed away at the young age of 27 from some sort of fall from a 2nd story. The details are still a little fuzzy and there is a police investigation going on to find some answers. I can't even describe how heartbreaking and shocking all of this has been. Her husband was a great guy and a fantastic husband. They were so in love with each other. We have been thinking and praying for Kristina, his family, and her family all week.

I had plans of going up there tonight to be there for the weekend. My other best friends, Sarah & Alyssa, are going to be there too. Well, just my luck that my flight to Chicago was delayed over an hour which meant I would miss my connecting flight to Hartford, CT. My options were to go to Chicago tonight and stay the night in the airport for the first flight in the morning, or stay here in Tulsa tonight and leave at 6 am for Chicago and take a 10:30 flight to Hartford. I opted for the later because I really didn't want to stay in Chicago by myself over night. Now I'm going to get to Connecticut around 2 tomorrow afternoon. I'm basically losing half a day with Kristina and the girls, but I feel like I need to be there for however long that may be. Just bummed that it's not going to be as long as I wanted.

If you do know Kristina, please continue to keep her in your prayers too. She has luckily had and will continue to need tons of love and support in the coming months.
