Running has officially turned into a luxury. I am completely swamped with school, work, volunteer, and club activities and quite literally have no time for anything extra. In fact, I’m writing this as I stand in line at the student clinic because I can’t do homework at this second. I actually started crying during class when I realized I scheduled an hour lecture I have to give on the same day as a huge medical nutrition therapy exam and the day before an 8 page MNT case study is due and another community nutrition exam. Seriously I just want to cry and scream and run for hours all at the same time.
Anyway, I’m still following my half-marathon training schedule (though not to the T) and will still run it next month. The thing I’m NOT going to do is stress about it. Whatever time will be fantastic because that meant I’m still running and was lucky enough to get outside and run down a mountain on a (hopefully) splendid fall day.
My number was just called gotta go!
