Till SUMMER!! I move into my new apartment with Kristin on April 26. It has a pool, to say I'm excited is an understatement. It's by the RB so I'll be close to my classes. Yeah, I'm taking spring term classes, but right now, I don't even care. I am so excited for sunshine, swimming, warmth, new ward, new friends, the whole shabang! I'm still waiting to hear back if EFY wants me to work for them...cross our fingers people, I really want to be an EFY counselor!
My marathon is in less than 2 months & training is going great! The long runs are exhausting and taking longer and longer, Friday I did 14 miles in about 2 1/2 hrs. It took a long time, it was warm at the beginning of my run... but got really cold as the sun went down. I ran 7 miles straight yesterday, hoorah! My body's tired today, but I've got another 4 miler today then Friday is a 16 miler. I do 16 miles as the long run for a couple weeks and then I have 18 milers & then it starts tapering down to marathon time! I can do this! I will do this! I am a marathoner! I've never felt so accomplished in my life as I have in this training. I have never been good at school. & I have never been good at pushing myself as much as I have done with this training, but currently, I feel invincible! Woohoo!
Plus, it's been 50 degrees here this week & it's been amazing, Monday I was so excited after I got back from my run I tried on all my shorts :)

  5. Rachel, I give you great big fat KUDOS for having accomplished so much! Just to discipline yourself like that is something else. Good luck on the 16 miler!
