Right this very minute.
This was on the radio today, and I forgot how much I love this song. My dad used to sing it all the time! I hope you’re reading this, Dad.
Today has been another one of those “just keep rolling along” kind of days. I did some stuff but nothing really that exciting. At least that’s how it feels.
I was up early to get in my run. 7:30 came way too soon.
In my awesome new mug that Cassa gave me at our Maneater gift exchange last night:
For some reason I was a little anxious before my run…I felt like I was going to run a race! I was probably nervous because I had 5 miles on the docket for today, and that’s one of the farthest distances I’ve run since I started running regularly this semester.
But I laced up my shoes and got it done! I ran about 10 minute miles, which is right where I want to be for my longer distances.
I’m not sure if I shared this, but I’m training for a 5-mile race on January 12. I’ver never raced farther than a 5K, and I’m really excited to try it out! My goal is to finish in under 50 minutes, since that’s the fastest I’ve ever run 5 miles before (timed.) Judging by my run today, I should be able to reach my goal pretty easily.
If you ever wonder what gets my motivated to run long distances on Sunday mornings, this is it:
I ate both of these bagels and savored every bite.
After lunch, I watched a little football with Allen while attempting to study. I eventually had to go back to my room because I couldn’t focus. I managed to get a little bit of work done despite the distractions of bad Lifetime Christmas movies.
Dinner at the dining hall. Pretty standard stuff.
Tonight is Next Iron Chef! Then maybe some studying or flute practicing before bed. Up at 7 with the Today Show I’m sure.
