The Shields Riot, where he updates his readers on the family's travels, humor, thoughts and other meaningless adventures.
Last month I completed yet another marathon. It felt good to finish, really good. I even beat my last time by two whole minutes! Every time I complete a race it makes me want to run another one. You receive a sense of achievement that is difficult to describe. I have never felt this before in my life, until I started running and competing. It's different then winning a basketball or soccer game with your team. The race is up to you, just you. You have to be both physically and mentally ready. Maybe that's why I like it. I can depend on myself and maybe not on other people.
Another good thing about pushing Baby T on my runs are that he motivates me. Some days when I get home and don't want to go running because I am exhausted, I hear his childish voice tell me that he wants to go on a walk outside. Which means he wants me to push him in the jogging stroller. He motivates me and gets me going. Maybe I owe it to Baby T for beating my last marathon time by two minutes. Thank you Baby T for the motivation and look for us out on the streets, give us a honk and a wave!
