oh hey

sorry it’s been a while.

this past saturday i ran a 5K.  since i haven’t been working out much or eating that great lately, my only goal was to run it in under 30 minutes.  i woke up about 45 minutes before the race, got dressed, and reluctantly left the house.  i arrived with just enough time to say hi to casey and grab my number.  by they way, it was so so cold that morning (35 degrees) and i didn’t have the proper gear, e.i. hat and gloves.  my fingers were so cold…they swelled up almost double their normal size. 

anyway, i ran the 5K in 29:13 (9:24 minute miles) and ended up getting 3rd place in my age group (20-29).  it was kinda embarrassing though because my time wasn’t impressive at all.  everyone in my age group was just slow…haha.  the women in the 30-39 age group were super fast.  i ended up getting 49th place out of 133 total runners and 19th place out of 74 women runners. 

like i said, my goal was to do it in under 30 minutes and i did…so i’m proud of myself.  i think i did pretty good for someone who’s not a disciplined runner and not really in the best shape right now.

in other news, i started a new job today! 
i am working through a temp agency for a financial company.  today went well and as far as i can tell, i think i’ll really like this job.  i really like all 3 of my coworkers too!  two things off the top of my head that i am exicted about are: 1. fridays are casual which means i can wear jeans AND we get to leave at 4 o’clock.  2. we share a building with some other people who do other stuff and one of the guys brings his dog to work!  so we have an office dog: a black cocker spaniel named nate!  he’s super cute and friendly and wiggly.

basically today was a good first day.  i hope this job works out.
