the last of the race posts [for now].

18 Oct

As I sit in the library trying to get back on track this week school-wise, I got an e-mail from the Nike Women’s Marathon saying my race pics were posted. Most of them are awful (I really should start posing, just for my own amusement)…but I thought I’d share…

this is when i was hauling.

this was when i wanted to stop.

grinding to finish.


Okay, now that the self-gratifying portion of this blog post is over… Here are some “goals” for the week:

– Get all caught up on my classes this week and work out any kinks/problem areas. This semester is going to be over before I know it and I don’t want to wake up the day before finals and realize I am still confused by the “Battle of the Forms.”

– Sign up for another half-marathon (likely in January). I want to fix my poor pacing problems and hopefully PR.

– get some long-term goal planning going. Things on the life-to-do list in order of least urgent to most: teach a class at a gym, coach high school cross country (to some extent), figure out the type of law I am most interested in, get a job for the summer, actually learn to cook.

– hang out with my friends! The last weeks have been dominated by memos, midterms, and my race. This week I hope I can actually squeeze in some fun! Hah.

What is one small goal you have for the week? 

I participated in #fitblog tonight on Twitter for the first time – so this is where all the goal setting/fitness inspiration came from.

    Your dedication to running/working out makes me realize that I really need to start exercising more…seriously. I love the second to last photo, you actually look pretty happy, but I’m sure you’re absolutely exhausted! haha

      Thank you so much, Caroline! That is way too sweet! I totally support your endeavor to run/work out more 🙂 and I’m happy to be a run/hiker buddy if you need one! I was so happy to be finishing but i looked and felt SO haggard!! x
