I don’t understand how this is selfish.. it’s your wedding… lol I mean unless you were putting all the tasks off to your friends and family and not doing anything yourself… but this doesn’t sound like the case! Keep up the running!!!!

@jouissance:   Not selfish at all.  Wow, I’m surprised a friend would tell you that, some friend.  Seriously, though, you should keep doing what you love doing and don’t worry what anyone besides yourself and your Fiance thinks about it.

How odd. No, you’re not selfish. You’re awesome for being fit and taking care of your health by running!

No way is this selfish!

My Darling Husband has a schedule like yours (2 hours a day, 5 days a week). I think it’s healthy and I like watching his races.

The only problem that I’ve ever had with his training (he’s not a runner though) is that he can’t enjoy going on vacations with me unless he’s worked out. He tries hard to put me first though and he’ll run before I wake up.

Wow, I’m impressed by all of your running!  That is awesome!

I don’t think you are being selfish at all with a hobby like that especially if it is not interfering with your wedding planning.  Weddings last a day, hobbies can last a lifetime so, no, I would not give up running for wedding planning.

I’m not sure how long you’re running for, but many of my bride friends (including myself) work out for at least an hour in the gym every night. No one has ever said a word!

I was confused when I read the title, and I’m still confused after reading the post, as how your friend truly deems this “selfish”. Whaaat?

That sounds like a mean-spirited comment to me. 

There’s nothing wrong with your exercise, and it’s not like hubby-to-be is waiting at home anyway.  Enjoy your runs, and ignore her comment.  

So long as you feel like your life is on track, nothing else matters.

@LiliKitty:  I felt exactly how you felt, and was so confused I couldn’t even write anything to comment, so I just +1 somebody’s.

Honestly, if you are not DIY ing what IS there to do wedding related? I am not DIY ing anything. I feel like I do nothing wedding related ever except make phone calls, sign my name and write checks.

OMG, you’re SO not selfish.  I thought you were going to say some crazy thing like you run 5 hours a day and never see your husband.  When I’m marathon training, I’m running as much as you’re talking about and I’ve never thought twice about it.

If you’re selfish, then so am I! I love running! It’s my stress outlet and miss it so much now that I’m pregnant. I think the fact that you do it while your Fiance is working is even better. It’s not like you’re using all of your time that you could be spending with him to run. I say more power to you and good luck on your PR and the marathon!
