On a Training Schedule at Last

I'm using Hal Higdon's intermediate 1 schedule joining it at week 13. Today is a 5 mile run at a comfortable pace. I think that probably means about 8:45 miles for me.

What I'm reading: Brain Rules
What I'm running: See above
What I'm thinking: It can be painful to see those you love struggle especially if you think they blame you for some of their difficulty.

Relieved that Financial Aid Finally Showed

The title says it all. I think the financial aid office must be overwhelmed because I wasn't the only one who was sweating how I was going to pay.

What I'm reading: Brain Rules
What I'm running: 2 days of rest (one recovery from13 miles Sat. night and one for Yom Kippur)
What I'm thinking: Life is good, but I should really try to accomplish more. Also, there are a lot of engaging and/or funny writers doing blogs. Unfortunately, I'm not one.
