As I’m not sure how much time I’ll have in front of the computer, or actually want in front of the computer I’d thought I’d do a little blogging before I leave for the Big Apple. Mmmm apples. Mmmm pizza. Mmmm New York food. (Queue Homer Simpson gurgling noise.)
First and foremost, I got a promotion at the J-O-B. I’m pretty stoked about it. It’s a bit more money and in the direction I’d like my career to go. As I don’t like to get too personal on the old blogosphere, I’ll just say that it’s a great step in the right direction.
Secondly, I’m going running while in New York. What did you think I’d take a break? Heck no. I want to keep up the running there because lord knows I’ll be eating like a mad woman. In my efforts to run while there I googled a local running group and emailed them. And low and behold they emailed me back and I’ll be running with them. How freakin’ cool is that? I love the running community. I’ll be sure to take some pics. I won’t be running in Central Park or anything because that would be very complicated logistically, but I will be running close to auntie’s house.
Lastly, I have been feeling very drained on my 10 milers. I asked Coach EK what that was all about. He and I discussed it and both feel it is due to non-running related stress. Now that I’ve got the job thing situated and get a little break before I officially start, I’m hoping that upon my return from New York I won’t feel so sluggish and sore after my long runs. We’ll see how it goes.
Until next time, keep runnin’ and smilin.
