back at it!

I feel so weird not having a 'countdown' on my blog title!  But, honestly I have nothing to countdown because for the first time in a few years, I am not signed up for another marathon.  That's not to say I won't be doing one soon, it is just a fact that I haven't decided and am trying to be free and flexible right now.

As for running, I'm back at it!  Started last Sunday with a few miles with my mom.  Then, (perhaps stupidly) decided to run home from my mom's work on Monday.  10.5 miles in the dark in sub 30 degree weather the second day back running after 3 weeks off.....not so smart.  It felt pretty good, but I was a bit sore the next day.  The rest of my week has been filled with shorter, easier runs when I could squeeze them in between my jobs and 12 hour workdays.  Really, work is what has been dominating my life the past few weeks.  Hense my lack of time/motivation to blog.  I've of course been teaching as usual, but also taken on extra hours at the bakery.  Suddenly, my 15-20 hours a week there, turned into 30 hours!  It has been difficult, but I'm really trying to save up extra money for that yet-to-be-determined spring marathon trip.  We will see though.  My sanity is not worth any amount of extra money!  Plus, too much work = not enough time to train = sad me.

So yeah.  Atleast the 'school week' is over.  I got 12 hours at the market tomorrow, but if you've been reading my blog you know I have a slight obsession with the market.  I'm alittle nervous because it is supposed to be 20 degrees...yikes.  I'm hoping people will still be out and willing to buy bread and pastries from me though!  I don't have very many weeks left to go down there, and the more I sell, the more likely my boss is to keep me going!  Pressure is on!

Have a good weekend everyone!
