Well, another busy day is in the books! Today was full of work, homework, family and of course, running! We started summer hours at work today, which means I get to leave work at 3:30 or 4pm on Fridays until Labor Day. Hooray! 🙂 I left work a little after 4pm today and headed straight to Michaels (the craft store) to pick-up supplies to finish a few projects I’ve been sitting on for a while. One of the projects is a scrapbook for all of my race bibs. I plan to give each bib it’s own page and write my time as well as any other important information about the race under the bib. I also plan to make a set of mason jar lanterns to go on the new fence in our backyard. The goal is to make a neat adult hang-out where we can host get-togethers with neighbors and friends this summer.
Anyway – after Michaels, I rushed home to get started on my research proposal for school. I am the world’s biggest procrastinator when it comes to writing papers for school, and this assignment was no different. The assignment is due by 9pm tomorrow (Saturday) night and I hadn’t touched it yet this week. Also, the family is going to see The Book of Mormon tomorrow, which means that I really had to have the assignment done by the time I went to bed tonight. Luckily, I had a lot of the main components completed from previous assignments in the class, so the project was a lot of cut and paste with a little bit of new writing.
Meanwhile, I learned that my in-laws brought home two new kittens today – I just HAD to go play with them!! This meant that not only did I have to finish my paper tonight, I had to run (to keep my streak going) and meet the new family members. So what is a busy streaker to do?! Easy! RUN to my in-laws house! Luckily they only live about 2.5 miles away, so it’s not a big deal, other than the fact that I arrive out of breath and sweaty. 🙂 It really is a win-win – I get to spend time with family and get a good workout in. Hooray for multitasking! Here are my stats for tonight’s run:
Like I said, tomorrow is family day. We are going to see The Book of Mormon and then to dinner. This means I really have to get out bed and get my run in early. Must keep the streak going!!! Speaking of the streak – here the numbers to date:
Miles to Date: 10 (I totally forgot about the 3 miles I ran on Tuesday when I posted last night!)
Consecutive Days: 5
Miles to Goal: 120
Days Remaining: 34
