Tuesday Hill Day

Ahh Tuesday.  Three classes, homework, hill run, and an MTEL prep class.  A solid day.  Tuesdays are  hands down one of my busiest days of the week, but I always manage to squeeze everything in, including a delightful dinner of rice cakes and cheese in between my hill run and MTEL class (don’t worry- I eat more after class, and I’m always sure to fill up at lunch).  A little after 4:30, I leave for the hill run, and the commute to the Commons is always a grab bag of chaos, which is just part of the excitement of taking public transportation in the evening.  Then I run the hills. I’ve said this before, and I will say it again: hill runs are important.  Facing the hills during a long run has become so much easier since I began doing hill runs.  I have honestly noticed a difference, both physically and mentally.  Having a history MTEL prep class from 7:00-9:00 certainly motivates me to run faster so that I make it back to school in time (always try to find motivation everywhere!).

Something that was very exciting about today was that it was still light out when I began running!!  Soon enough, I’ll be running in shorts (Okay, maybe jumping the gun a little bit)!

Thank You Notes:

  • Thank you to hill runs for physically and mentally preparing me for the marathon and for making me a better runner.  As painful as they can be, I know how important they are.
  • Thank you to Olympic coverage and commercials for being so motivating.  The Olympic Games: Inspiring workouts everywhere- one inspirational montage at a time.
  • Thank you to all of my readers, especially my international readers.  I cannot get over how cool it is that people across the globe are reading my posts.  I have a few friends studying abroad this semester, so I know who a few of you are, but seriously, who in Russia is reading my blog?!  Thank you!

As of yesterday, I reached the halfway point of my $9,000 fundraising goal!  Thank you to everyone who has donated to Brigham and Women’s Hospital, which is such a great cause, and if you have not, follow the link below to donate!  Thanks 🙂
