I spent about four hours packing last night and tonight I'm going down to D.C. to look at another place to live. Then I'm going back down again Thursday night to look at another one. I really hope one of them works out. I'm starting to stress out about being homeless in a few weeks.
In the workout world, I haven't had much going on. I ran a 5K with my friend on Sunday.
We did OK, but the course was kind of crappy. It was an out and back, which I don't mind. Except this course was completely downhill the first half and up a huge hill on the way back. We clocked out first mile in 8:36 because we gravity was pulling us down the hill so fast. Unfortunately we hit mile two at 19:46 and then finished at at 30:50 according to the official times. The hills were brutal and there was just no way I could sustain my normal pace over the race course.
I was disappointed in my time, but Amy and I had a really great time and it was a beautiful day, so I can't complain too much. I'll just need to find a different race to Shave my 5K.
Oh and in other news...it's official.
I registered for the National Marathon on March 21 in D.C. Training starts next Monday. I sure as heck hope I have my living situation figured out by then. I don't want to be skipping runs at the beginning of training because I'm busy looking for a place to live.
