My first race is June 7th in Washington, DC for the Stonehill competition. I'm really excited about this because I know I'm stronger now than I was back then. And in college I was in great shape. Who knew quitting my job at the gym would be so beneficial!! I am on a very regular workout schedule, so I feel pretty great.
We're getting ready to place orders for our unisuits and team jackets, so I'm even more excited. Last night I brought out my old unis from college and can still get into all of them with no problems. I'd venture to say I look better in them now than then. ;-)
Anyway, it's a nice pick-me-up considering the downer week I've had. I received some rather disheartening, but unsurprising news a couple days ago. I'm not going to bother going into it, but it just made me plain sad.
I've also been REALLY sick since Monday. I'm starting to feel better as of this morning, but I still have very clogged sinuses and a semi-sore throat. I sound more terrible than I feel, which I suppose is better than having it the other way around. Despite taking vitamin C each day, drinking lots of water and getting tons of exercise, I am a little surprised that I managed to get so sick. Oh well, I guess. But I imagine I'll be better for this weekend... (I hope)
