Good News...Bad News...Running News

The good news is that I got my scores back for my grad school class test I had last week. I got an 88% on the test I thought I failed (I seriously didn't think I got any of them right) and 100% on the test I studied like a madwoman for (because I thought I had failed the other one) Yipee!!

Bad news. Woke up with a sore throat in the middle of the night and its been bugging me all day. I gave my friend Bill a ride for like 3 minutes on Monday and he said he had a sore throat and now I'm having the same problem. I choose to blame him, though its probably not his fault, but I tend not to believe that I just get sore throats out of nowhere. The weather is also nasty here so it looks like cold season has begun!

Running News-I've been doing a little research and I'm a little ashamed of myself. People just run so much faster and longer than I do, and seemingly have been trying for the same amount of time. I will cut myself some slack though because although I tried to be active, I wasn't horribly active all summer and have recently gotten back into working out consistently. Its become a habit now. I will keep trying, but I'm so sick of things not being easy. Sometimes I just want that easy button.

That's awesome that you got such good grades! (Especially the 88 on the test you thought you failed; that's always a *great* feeling). Hopefully you're not getting sick, but 'tis the season...
As far as running is concerned, I've found it's completely useless to compare yourself to other people. I feel I should be able to run faster than I do, but there are a thousand reasons I don't (I'm a shorty, my ankles flare up, etc.) All I know is I run a *lot* faster now than I did a year ago at this time, and that's enough for me to be happy. I'm happy if I have a slow run some days because I didn't want to go running at ALL, so I'm just proud of the fact that I actually got my ass outside. At the end of the day, the only person you have to prove yourself to is you; just make sure that *you're* happy. :-)
