Relief

This past week has certainly been a whirlwind. The final results are in though and our family has one less house in our possession and one additional high school graduate! Both of my older boys set a goal for themselves to graduate from high school a year early. They have both had mental health struggles this year that threatened to derail their goals. We received word today that both boys passed all of their classes this semester, which means one of them will graduate Saturday and the other will graduate after completing a credit recovery program this summer! It looks like he should be done around June 11 so he won’t be far behind his brother in graduating. It’s a huge relief for all of us that their hard work has paid off for them. Also, our closing on our old house was finalized yesterday. We had to move the last of our items out of the house over the weekend and I was super sore for a couple of days afterward. We had left a few large items in the basement that were heavy and awkward to get up the stairs. I was thankful to still be able to run a mile each day despite the exhaustion and soreness. Today was the first day in quite awhile where I felt like I had the time to run as far as I wanted. I ran almost 2.5 miles to check out a nearby neighborhood with a couple of houses for sale. I also did some pull-ups, dips, and a flip on my way out. It was a great run. The only other day this week where I was able to run more than a mile was Monday evening. I ran just under 2 miles that day but it was broke up by a visit to a park with my youngest. Those are some of my favorite runs. I’m certainly ready to settle into a slower pace for summer and to have time to lengthen my runs when the mood strikes!
