Ever since the end of the half marathon I have had a few things on my mind.
Mainly - where do I go from here. I just finished the race I have been planning for since July and there is kind of a let down. I still have a race here at school (a 5K) for the Alumni weekend that I am planning on racing hard since I got second place in it last year plus the Turkey Trot and more races with Winkly and of course I have my senior season of Indoor/Outdoor Track!!
Also I just read this post by Rocks in My Dryer about private journaling and being a mother and a writer. I am not a mother but I do love to write on a personal level as well as blog writing. I think there is a big difference between the personal journal written with a pen and blog writing on the computer. Usually in my personal journal I try to avoid any really negative stuff unless its absolutely necessary.
I have been watching Dean Karnazes running on the treadmill for 48 hours straight and it has gotten me thinking. He is just one man but he has made a difference in so many peoples lives. I just wish sometimes everything could be as simple as running.
On that same line of thinking - why does everyone seem to care more about the new Facebook than the election or even what is going on in the world. Seriously I am just saying that I hate how people don't even pay attention to anything that is happening but as soon as Facebook changes its like a major crisis.
I ran yesterday - 3 miles and it helped to reduce the leg soreness. I wanted to do intervals this morning but the track is still closed for re-sealing and painting. I am still tired - I need some more coffee...
