It’s been a while since I’ve done a post like this, but I think these posts are really good because they give you an accurate picture of what goes on inside my brain. Which is a LOT. And I don’t necessarily mean in the MENSA way, I mean in the ADD, pass the Adderall kind of way.
Onto the random things!
1. I wanted to run long on Thursday morning, but I fell asleep with a pretty severe headache and a touch of a sore throat. I almost NEVER get sick so it was sort of alarming. I woke up yesterday morning after some pretty fitful dreams, with an even bigger headache, and I spent most of the morning on the couch answering some emails and chugging coffee and water to try and get the headache to go away/flush some of that nasty stuff out of my body.
2. I noticed some people who ran Tobacco Road had posted some of their times and photos from the race. Check out this proof!
So I ran 13.1 miles after arriving at a race late, and since I was late I could not check a bag. this means I had my jacket (that was wayyyy too expensive for me to ditch), my water, and my phone, all with me. Oh well, race ended well despite some residual soreness from having to fight my way up from the back of the pack during the race. Check out that lobster red face!
3. I think I found some tickets in a really good section of Stevie Wonder in Newark in April to surprise my dad with. For the most part I don’t think my dad reads this blog super often. If he happens to be reading today my surprise is ruined. Also, is there a reason why ticket scalpers need to make all of our lives extremely difficult by buying up all the tickets? A lot of times they have to drop the price down in the final days before the concert. That has to be stressful. Is that worth it? Can’t they be normal people and get a second job that requires not gumming up Ticketmaster for the rest of us?
I drink out of this thing on the regs. All sorts of watery beverages. Water, sparkling water. You know, I get pretty crazy. Well I happened to be looking at the bite valve on this thing last week, and it was full of mold. Which is kind of terrifying. But also explains why ::knock on wood:: that I’ve not been really sick in a long time. Like I don’t count a little sore throat that I’m dealing with now. But I’ve been ingesting all sorts of disgustingness while I’ve been trying to stay hydrated for some time. Gross. Also intriguing.
5. My performance appraisal is next week. Eep. I hope it goes well. It kind of makes my stomach hurt to think about it. I’ve done a good job at my job, and I love my job, but I know there are things I can improve on. And I want to take the time between this PA and next years to kill it even harder.
Tell me one random thing!
