    Not strange, just a parent. [​IMG] That never stops. We just returned from cold, sunny Fla. Cheered our kids on at the Disney marathon. We were both a wreck until our kids (51 and 49) crossed the finish line. You will survive. Activity is a great empty nest survival program. Volunteer work, increased home projects, going back to school can all be part of the 'growing' program. [​IMG]

    Glad to have you back sour! [​IMG] Were there a lot of runners in the Disney marathon?

    Eggsy, look at this time as a chance to pat yourself on the back for raising a self-sufficient human and a chance for you to have some "me" time. You never stop being a parent but now you can re-discover yourself again. That empty nest stuff is no fun but in a while, it will become the new normal.

    Approximately 25,000 in the marathon alone. They also held a 5 K, a 10K, a half marathon, and a full marathon over the course of 4 days. Some people ran all four races. It boggles the mind to think of all the effort put into putting on this race and all the effort in training on the part of the participants.

    Wow, that's big! And for some to run in all four?! Amazing. You run too, don't you sour?

    Did you have time to see some of the sights while you were there? (Other than running people, lol.)

    I am always impressed by women who had children and can still run.
    I can not even sneeze and get away with it anymore.
