Life Lately

I haven't run a single mile since signing up for the Austin Half.

This is not (just) because I've been a little lazy. It's also because a minor, okay MAJOR, emergency came up at work on Friday, and since then, I've been working. A lot. Like coming in on Sunday a lot. And working until 10 pm on Monday a lot. Tonight I got home relatively early, but was way too tired to even think about putting on my running shoes. This is no bueno.

In other news, I got my Garmin, and I fully intend on busting it out this weekend while I bang out 4 miles around Central Park. That is, of course, assuming I don't have to work.  A girl can dream, right?

But even though I'm tired and fat and bloated and lookin' a little... not so good lately, and even though I want to do nothing but collapse into bed and sleep for 24 hours straight, I'm actually loving how dynamic my new work environment is.  And I like being involved in this project/emergency even though it has completely taken over my life lately.  See?  I can be glass half-full sometimes.

Oh I'm also insanely behind on blogs and twitter.  Forgive me.

I've had the same sort of experience with work emergencies. They can be total shit, you work around the clock, get no sleep, have no energy, but it leaves you feeling sort of reinvigorated. It can bring the team together and actually be sort of exciting. It'll blow over soon enough and then you can get back to running!

So awesome that you are jumping in with both feet, literally, to your new job!! So YAY for that!

And don't worry, you'll get back into your running routine soon enough :)
