I wanted to…

Happy Columbus Day

I wanted to get on today and write a post about my last long run of 22 miles before the marathon. Yea, I wanted to, but the run never happened (or hasn’t happened yet). It’s been raining and cold (40s) yesterday and today, which doesn’t make for the best running weather. Yes, yes I have been complaining about the heat all summer and have declared my undying love for chilly weather, but running in freezing rain? Nah, I’ll pass. It’s probably for the best. I needed to be back early since I agreed to be a speaker for a class at the University of Michigan (I’ll be Skyping). So my time would’ve been crunched anyways. Β Anyhoo, my last long run will just have to wait one more day. Geez, my running over the past month has been ridiculously inconsistent. I hate how life gets in the way of my running πŸ˜‰ Bet I’ll have the worst marathon ever. Oh well.

Tomorrow this is what the weather is supposed to be. “Supposed to” being the operative words. Who know when the weather channel gets it right?

I have a variety of other topics I want to post on, but am going to use my time today to prepare my materials to be sent out for jobs. 3 new jobs were posted on Friday, all at universities I would love to work at. Gotta put this PhD to work, ya know?

So I hope you have a productive Monday…and if the weather sucks where you are too right now, go out and get yourself something special at Starbucks πŸ™‚ I hit it up yesterday for a pumpkin latte and I’m definitely going back today

And if Starbucks isn’t enough to brighten your day, how about a J.Crew sale?

An extra 25% items already on sale? Here’s a little outfit I created of items I’m coveting

What’s the weather like where you are?Β 

What’s one thing you’ve been meaning to get to but haven’t (because of life/work/illness/etc)?

And just for fun: does anyone watch Breaking Amish? I freakin’ love that show right now. The bf and I will watch Dexter and Homeland on Showtime and then I make him sit through an hour of Breaking Amish. It’s like The Real World, but with Amish kids! Sunday night TV is definitely the bomb πŸ™‚

  9. Yes, the weather has been awful. Tried to do 20 today, but didnt have enough time to get it all in bc it was getting dark (we started late to try to hold out for the rain!). But regardless, I think I’m ready for MCM and you are too! I LOVE Breaking Amish! I force my roommates to watch with me! πŸ™‚

    J. Crew sale and a pumpkin spice latte…if those aren’t the ways to my heart, I’m not sure what is!
