I’m Getting Married!!!

5 Mar

In case you didn’t know – I am getting married!!!

In just 3 days, I get to marry the man of my dreams. “The One” that I wished for so many years ago. The person that knows me best. And the person that loves me for all my good, and all my flaws.

And I cannot freaking wait.

Time goes by so fast. Especially when you are planning a wedding, starting a new job, and training for a marathon. Life is full, and my cup runneth over. But I am so lucky and feel blessed beyond belief!

This entire process of wedding planning, I have had a goal to remain calm and not get overwhelmed with all the stupid things. And really, I think I have done a good job. Over 8 months of planning the wedding, and I have only had a few meltdowns. In my research of TLC bridal shows, a few meltdowns = a really sane bride.

Now with the wedding just a few days away, I feel like I am at mile 20 of the marathon. It is getting hard right now, but the finish is so close (duh – I had to use a running metaphor somewhere!!), and I am ready to see it 🙂

I keep asking my friends that are married what their advice is for the last few days of being a single girl, and I would love to hear your advice too!!

After the wedding and the honeymoon, it is my goal to get my blog life back and document the rest of my Boston Marathon training. I was not expecting to run Boston in 2014, but through a crazy turn of events I now get to experience this race again. Everyone told me that training for a marathon and planning a wedding would make me crazy and would be fairly impossible. However I must say that this is what has made my freakout level stay at a minimum and I am glad I made the decision to go for it!

Take care and I will see you soon!!!
