So freaking sick of being sick

I usually get sick about once a year, max. That’s any kind of sick, either a cold, the flu, or strep. My nice once a year November illness and it’s over. However just this summer I have had two bad stomach bugs and I’m currently on my third bad bad head cold. On top of that allergies I never had until a few years ago are worse than ever. This is so miserable! And does not jive well with the demands of grad school. At least when I had a job I could take sick days. Not now!

BAA Half Marathon week 8 workout 4: 5 miles pace. These pace runs are a good indicator that I WON’T be running the half at the pace I wish. This should’ve been about 8:25 per mile and instead was 9:02. The first two miles were good, third a little slow, and then I got a terrible side stitch that killed it. Oh well. I am trying! Still hoping for a PR even if i don’t hit my goal time.

Five Fun Facts!

Because I’m avoiding studying.

  1. I’ve lived in the heart of a city, in the complete boring traditional suburbs, and on a farm. Also in the three best cities on the country (Boston, NYC, DC!).
  2. I’ve played lots of instruments here and there for a couple years, but have been playing piano since kindergarten and recently started learning guitar.
  3. No on in my family goes by their original given name, to varying degrees of difference. My mom goes by a common nickname for her given name, my dad goes by a nickname for his middle name (and has never used his first), my brother goes by a common nickname for his original legal name, and it was changed to what it is now, and I go by my legal name which is completely different than what it originally was before it was legally changed.
  4. My favorite food ever is tomatoes.
  5. I am naturally pretty flexible. I am also really short. I probably should have embraced my body and become a gymnast!
