oh sexism!

"It was a different time!" Obviously, because I'm not too sure Goodyear would get away with a line nowadays that says "When a woman's at the wheel..."

I think a nice update for this commercial to work right now would be putting Snooki at the wheel.

long run

Went 11 miles today! New personal best as far as distance in one run goes...but overall it was pretty frustrating. Had to stop a lot at the end, and I really wanted to do 12 but my body wasn't having it.

Special thanks to the high school kid who yelled "Run, bitch, run" at me from across the street. Pissed me off enough to get that last 1/2 mile.

Stopped my timer when I took my little breaks, so this time isn't exactly what it took total, but:
11 miles.

27 miles for the week so far with 1 DAY TO GO!

Challenge #9 : 30 mile week

Gearing up for the marathon so I really have to get after it this week with the running. I'm trying for a 30 mile week. Again, as with all running things I post, I know to a serious runner this isn't too great a feat, but to me it's something big! Over 4 miles a day on average is far more than I generally run.

So let's see if I can gut it out here and get myself a few steps closer to completing my first 1/2 marathon!

running milestone

Today I passed a running milestone for myself that a lot of people would probably find dumb and easy, but for me it's the farthest I've ever run. Today I ran 10 miles!

I know that anyone who actually runs considers this a less than worthy feat, but to me it was tough and I'm glad I did it. Actually felt better than I thought I would at the end.

Getting closer and closer to that 1/2 marathon, gotta keep getting better.

10 miles.

Taylor does Mumford, too!

Can you see a theme here?

Sara Bareilles does Mumford

This was one of my favorite songs from her concert last night @ Central Park (note: video not from last night. I just found it on the Internets!)

Challenge #8 Complete!

I finished "The Write Stuff" Challenge last night. Was successful in writing for 1 hour every day, except Monday night I fell asleep after 30 minutes. I'm not sure if anything I wrote was particularly good (or good at all), but hopefully at least this will get me in the habit of writing more outside of work. CHALLENGE COMPLETE.
