Run. Teach. Eat. Repeat.

Race Recaps

I run. I teach. I eat. I do some other stuff. Sometimes.

I'm a TA looking for a job teaching high school English and training for my first half marathon.

I like books, cooking, theater, hockey, and singing in the shower (or at church sometimes).

The day I manage to come out of Barnes & Noble without buying one of their bargain priced classics anthologies is either the day I master impulse control or the day I have no money in my bank account.

It’s just that all of the books on that table are so shiny and pretty and some of them are only $8 and the other ones have pretty golden pages and I just want them mom

My dad had to get a melanoma cut off his forehead and he came home with a big bandage over it and I being a loving and caring daughter immediately drew a lightning bolt scar on it

Update now the procedure gave him this awful black eye and every time someone asks him what happened he says I punched him

Six miles reppin’ my boys and #66 just before the first playoff game against Columbus! I’m predicting Pens in 6, but then again, that’s what I always guess. :) Is there anything more exciting than playoff hockey??? (Answer: No, although race day is a close second.)

Usually, by the time I get to run after work, I’m slow and tired and the whole run sucks. My first mile and a half definitely did (WHYYYY do my ankles always kill me for the first mile or so?), but after that, I got a rush of energy! My last two miles were even under ten minutes. I’m going to take this as a good sign for my boys for tonight!

T-17 days until race day!

Having one of those days where I want to walk to the nearest high school, burst through the doors, and scream: “I WOULD MAKE A REALLY GOOD TEACHER IF YOU GIVE ME A CHANCE, PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD HIRE ME” so I’m going to list the good things that happened today:

  • "HELLLLOOOOO, MISS W!" (Every time she comes into the classroom. Always.)
  • Doing jumping jacks with some of the girls to keep warm while they waited for moms to pick them up
  • "Miss W, is Snape Voldemort? Is he? Come on, I won’t tell anyone!!"
  • P’s attempt at an accent while reading the French words in our story
  • "Miss W, I LOVE math!" (Coming from a kid who will probably say he hates math tomorrow, but I’ll take what I can get.)
  • "See? The grown men in this story don’t even know how to write their names because they couldn’t go to school. You’re a very lucky group of kids." "Wow… we really are."

I may or may not have just gone hunting through the entire house until I found the hidden Easter candy.

And by “may or may not have” I mean I definitely did and I’m eating it right now.
