Had to wake up at early:30 this morning to take Kyle to work, and tomorrow is my LAST CLASS of the semester. My group is presenting first and then I’m leaving class early.
It’s going to be so nice to have no homework, be able to read for pleasure, have time to craft, and just generally have free time again. And for a whole month! Yussssssss. Then I get 3 weeks of vacation from December 20 all the way until mid-January.
So close I can taste it, y’all.
PS- Send us some snow, it’s just raining and high 30’s here, aka literally the worst weather ever.
12 days strong so far!
12/4, 3 easy
12/5, 2 fast at the track
12/6 3 easy
12/7, 30 minutes trails
12/8 1 very slow and hungover mile
12/9 3 miles treadmill, slow.
My mileage is really low with the streak, which is okay because I’m not in training. I do need to get some fast miles in soon, because the slow running is making me crazy.
happyhealthycook said:That’s lovely. I wish I could say yes. I am learning to love parts of me I’ve never loved before thanks to running. I can only hope it will keep getting better and better.
I think running gives a different focus and definition for self worth. Rather than agonizing over how to be skinny or focusing on how my eyeliner looks, I can direct that energy into working harder to run faster.
Dad: I think you won because you have your daddy’s nose
In case you are blind, my nose is big. I used to HATE it. I was bullied pretty badly in middle school— the quirky nerdy and eccentric did not have a real place until I got to college. Once, some kid yelled down the hall to me “Joel said to tell you you got a big old nose!”… yeah 12 year olds are bastards.
Anyway, I have grown to love my nose over the years. It’s pointy and long and so far from perfect, but it reminds me of my dad and makes my face my face. It’s taken me a long time to get here, but I can honestly say I wouldn’t change it.
Just a random schnoz note for your Friday :) do you have something you have grown to love over time?
Voting ended at Noon EST, and we have 165 votes as of 12:00…the next couple has 144. They did get like 30 votes in an hour. Pretty impressive.
We won! I feel so blessed to have friends and family who helped us share the link, and I am really thankful for all of you who voted too :)
I probably shouldn’t be taking a Facebook contest so seriously, but… I digress.
