Blah runs
Wednesday, January 05, 2011      4 comments

I'm having some hard runs this week and I think it's either because I'm tired, not getting to bed early enough or because I increased to 7 this past weekend or maybe it's just how much I hate the treadmill. Oh and then of course I'm also coming... Read more

My first 5K
Monday, October 25, 2010      7 comments

I started off the day feeling super nervous about whether I'd even be able to run the race and if I would look silly as my pace isn't what other runners paces are. I still went but still felt anxious up until it was time to go. Once I started... Read more

Tuesday, August 17, 2010      14 comments

I actually did really well and got the best scores in the areas I was worried about most. So now I have to find out if the state will waive a class for me. Seems silly to make me take a class on Early Childhood Development when I have been in... Read more
