Life Goes On

I have some exciting news.

I doubt that it will excite you as much as it excited me but whatever.

Tomorrow morning is my first cross country practice! Finally!

It actually is kind of crazy because we just signed my papers today and tomorrow is the first official preseason practice. So that was fast. Adding on to the craziness is that between practice and my job (which I have yet to tell you about I think), I have exactly 15 minutes to shower, dress, and eat breakfast. I’m going to be downsizing on my shower time apparently…

But I am not complaining. i’m so glad that it’s finally starting so I can get a legitimate running schedule going. Yesterday I ran 3.1 miles at a 7:31 pace. I was very proud of myself. That is an improvement from my last run by over 10 seconds per mile. Pretty impressive for a girl who was on vacation all weekend. Vacation not only from my normal life but also from my normal eating routine. If you catch my drift. Late night and early morning Oreos (and more) if you don’t catch my drift.

Okay, have we all caught the drift?


Anyways, I’m glad to finally get a routine going. And I’m excited about doing something new. And meeting new people. And improving on my running skills. I’m thinking it’s going to be a good experience. Can you tell?

I’m very optimistic about the whole ordeal.

Ordeal being cross country and Ordeal being life.

But right now we’re talking about cross country.


Okay, now we’re talking about life.

My pool job ended on Friday. However, I got a totally fantastic babysitting job for the next two and a half weeks! I babysit one adorable girl for 7 hours every day. So far, I haven’t done a full day cause she only needed me for two hours yesterday and five hours today but tomorrow will be a full day. Guys, this is the best job in the world. I’m in charge of the house for seven hours. It’s like the ultimate responsibility. And I love it. And the girl is so sweet and adorable and in love with me, which is always an added plus!

Life is good.

You know, I have been running for almost three years now! And I was thinking about how far I’ve come since then! When I started, a mile was considered a good run and I could barely run for longer than ten minutes before stopping for a breather. Three years later, I’ve run a half marathon and am significantly faster than when I started.

Points for perseverance!
