1. Wednesday ruled
I had a great 5 mile run Wednesday at a fast (for me, for the morning) pace of 8:49. Sometime in the early afternoon Wednesday I got an email saying that after - school activities were canceled for the evening, ergo, my grad class was canceled as well, due to snow. I immediately ran to the door to my classroom to check out the snow.
|Thank goodness they canceled after school clubs. We need to think of the children's safety!|
2. I love my bike trainer
I thought trainer workouts were for the afternoon only, since I have to turn the TV to nearly top volume to hear it over the trainer. I had plans tonight though, so I watched Felicity on the laptop with headphones and I thought I was in Heaven. 90s TV drama is the best way to start a day. I rode for one hour, aka "15 miles".
3. Frightening obsession
Having my mom in the movie theater business, I've always heard crazy stories of obsessed fans when movies with cult followings open, such as Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter. While I may have blogged about, and talked about my excitement over the opening of the fourth Twilight movie, Breaking Dawn, even I shook my head when I heard about tent city.
|Obsessed fans camp out for days hoping to get a glimpse of the actors on the red carpet at the official premier.|
However, the closer we get to March 23rd, I'm starting to become uncomfortable, because the gap between myself and these crazy fans seems to be growing smaller and smaller. Particularly when the Teen Vogue that I had to order to be elligible to win Hunger Games Premier passes arrived in the mail.
|I'm not proud, and yes I flipped straight to the Hunger Games special.|
I can't seem to get on board with the idea that the Myrtle Beach Marathon is next week. As in, we've entered the ten day forecast (which is good, as of now!). In my head, it's so much further away. I need to start doing things like....hydrating....packing......OCD planning.
It's going to be epic though. Eric, Lily, and I are meeting my friends Mike and Nicole, and Emily, and all staying together in a villa. Pasta dinner Friday, marathon Saturday (Mike's first, and Emily's first half!) and then celebrating race victory Saturday night (which for me involves eating chocolate until I can't move).
5. Middle schoolers
Eric coaches 8th grade girls basketball, and today I was finally able to make it to a game. I love seeing him and his team, but I was sitting in the stands with all the adolescents, and after the game I had to remove myself for their safety. It's not their fault, it's just an annoying age, but DAMN is it an annoying age. I have no idea how Eric, or anyone, gets through the day surrounded by middle schoolers. I'd rather be a garbage man. I took some pictures of Eric, but they all have middle schoolers in them, and I don't want to go to jail for posting pictures of children without permission, so you'll have to imagine him looking really intense and making wild hand gestures.
