It’s been a week. I am a prodigal blogger, but I’ve been hunkering down on the job hunt and the “getting real world things done” front.
Lots going on here.
Vet appointment (Scooter’s doing GREAT), a job interview (nailed it, more on that in another post) my own doctor’s appointment (I’m doing GREAT) volunteering for the Scotiabank Waterfront Marathon weekend (Expo yesterday, Course Marshalling tomorrow for the race) and then a snippet of work this morning (along with some shopping at the expo).
Jam some conditioning runs and an 8 mile long run in there along with my regularly scheduled flyer scouring and coupon snipping (I’m not an extreme couponer, I’m just on a budget) and you’ve got my week. Ok, ok. There was a significant amount of dog-cuddling peppered in there, too.
So no blogsingtons.
BUT, I’ll have a lot to share after I stand out on the race course tomorrow (in the rain, oh boy). I’m super excited to have a chance to see the 5K runners start in my area, and that also means I’m stationed around MIle 17 of the Marathon course, so I’m also excited to get a chance to see the Marathon runners as they come through. There is something so thrilling about seeing that first runner kicking away. It’s one of my favourite memories of the runDisney Princess Half Marathon this year – arriving at Mile 3, and seeing the eventual winner of the race just killing it as she ran back towards the finish line. Absolutely thrilling.
Fingers crossed for an exciting day (but not too exciting – let’s all stay upright, runners).
Good luck everyone!
