Random Friday Facts

1. I have to run 12 miles tomorrow and...I'm nervous. The last two 10 milers haven't gone so smoothly so I'm not exactly looking forward to adding on two more.

2. I reduced my work schedule from 5 days a week to 4 and the change has made a big difference in my quality of life. Too bad the quality of my paycheck suffers.

3. Financial aid is a pain in the butt in the best of times. In the worst of times they charge your credit card twice for a deposit and then send you letters saying you aren't accepted into a program and therefore your application is invalid.

4. GOTR coaching hasn't been what I had hoped.

5. I've been averaging 10 hrs of sleep a night lately and it still isn't enough. Sensing a problem...

6. I now take more pills than...well...a lot of people. I hope they start doing something soon.

7. My Friday night is going to involve a washing a load of dirty running clothes and going to bed before nine o'clock. I know, I need to calm down.

8. Have I mentioned that I heart ART? Because I do. It works, people.

9. Cutting down to one cup of coffee per day has been brutal.

10. I just got my vacation time for August approved. Bahamas here I come!

11. Yes, you are welcome to come with me!

12.  I'm thinking of moving when my lease is up in August.

13. I need more close friends. Living in VA has been a pretty lonely experience.

14. I've had Indian food three times this week. It is just too good.

15. I'm trying to be more honest and open with people while building a solid wall to keep myself safe. It is exactly as complicated as it sounds.

16. My goal race for a half PR is no longer June. I'm really bummed, but I just haven't logged the miles and I don't want to set myself up for disappointment.

17. Running and I tread lightly around each other these days, but I think we're moving towards a more positive relationship. It will just take more time than I anticipated.

18. Life coaches rock. Everyone should have one.

19. I don't post nearly enough pictures on here. I never carry a camera on my runs, phone or otherwise, and I think posting what you eat can be a little weird. Although, if you want cat pictures...

20.  Never underestimate the loving capacity of your mom. Ever.


  1. You rock, girl! And cat pictures are always cool!

  2. I'm sorry GOTR is not like you thought. I never coached but I was a running buddy and always wanted to be a coach. Sounds like a great program.
