Saturday: Pick-A-Run - I love how the shorter days make me feel like I'm staying out late every night.Saturday started out with a pick-a-run.  I headed out knowing that I would do no less than 6 and maybe as much as 8.  But I wasn’t really putting the pressure on myself to do the full 8 when I left.  But I did it anyway.  Once you are out there, you might at well.  And the surprising part was that I averaged my goal race pace!

Run: 8 miles / 1:31:32

The rest of Saturday consisted of picking up our fruit/veggie basket (great, more brussel sprouts), running a few errands with my favorite sister and then watching the Kona Ironman special!  Because watching hours of the Ironman live on my computer wasn’t enough.

Food was a mish-mosh of stuff.  I had cream of wheat before the run, half of a Costco pumpkin muffin after. Then there was a peach, a strawberry smoothie and some chex mix.  And Michael and I went to Smashburger for dinner.  Then one beer and that was it!

And then there was a party fail.  We were set to go to my sister’s neighbors Halloween party.  But by the time the party got going, we were winding down.  We hung out at my sisters instead and then came home.  Fine by me.  I have never been a party until dawn kind of girl.  And when it didn’t really get rolling until 11, the $15 cover didn’t really seem worth it.

I am approaching 40 and have been married since my early 20's. I have become more than a little frustrated with having to answer incredibly personal questions about my choice to not have children. It is apparently taboo to talk about religion and politics, but confronting me about my reproductive choices is fair game. It is not a choice I made alone, quickly or lightly. My husband and I made it together. I am not "withholding" children or grandchildren from anyone. There is an astonishing lack of understanding over the idea that it is an actual choice, to have a child or not. There is also an amazing lack of support, discussion and resources for those like me, that have made the choice. This is not a blog for kid-haters, or mocking people for having kids. It is a place where we can talk about living full lives, without kids, and without guilt.
