I have a marathon in 8 days. It will be the St. George. It will be my 6th St. George and my 11th total. Very exciting stuff.
Spouse, bless his heart, has been as supportive as a Double D jog bra. As supportive as the nearest buddy in a 12 step program. As supportive as the PTA president. As supportive as a J-Strap (can't bring myself to say jock). Spouse has been inconceivably supportive.
Sunday night, Spouse announces, "Okay young lady. I'm setting my watch for 9:00pm. You will be in bed at 9:00pm from now until the race." See Spouse has run a marathon (a dizzyingly fast 2:47) and mastered a few 100 mile weeks - he understands the value of sleep.
So every night since Sunday, I've been in bed at 9:00.
