This is the first school year when I have been done with grades before the last week of school. I managed my time wisely, planned the last weeks of school purposely, and stayed very organized so I’ve been in an odd situation this last week of school. Having everything on my end-of-the-year list done, I’ve been very bored during class time. I am accustomed to being very active and running around my classroom seemingly nonstop so boredom led to way too much internet surfing while my students do assignments. Combine free time with a brain stuck on wedding planning and you get my attempts to come up with a good theme for our wedding. My first idea led to tons of ideas from others’ blogs but was met with little enthusiasm by my fiance. My second idea was met with mixted reviews on Facebook but my fiance loved it, especially when we started discussing ideas for how to make it happen.
So….as of now, I am having a running themed wedding. Yes, I may have lost it! No, we are going to get married while running a race or do anything too extreme but guests will know that we run together,. I read about a couple of triathletes who made guests race on stationary bikes if they wanted the couple to kiss but I’ve yet to figure out a way to get two treadmills in our reception space; that is the one extreme idea I would love to see his family deal with! One huge bonus of making this a theme is that we will be doing many races together over the next year; while my knee doesn’t allow me to actually “race” and I hate short disrances, it looks like I have several 5Ks and 10Ks in my future. Considering I’ve yet to run a 5K, it will be an adventure all in the name of love.
If you have any ideas for how we can incorporate running and/or trails into our wedding, let me know! I have many ideas but could use lots more!
