Who am I?!

I ran 7 miles this weekend. Outside **gasp** without music **falls over in shock** who the heck am I these days.

I run more runs outside than on the TM and I prefer it that way. Even though it is getting colder so I am not sure how much longer I will prefer it (and why did I sign up for another winter race again?!)

Typically I throw on the iPod and try to get sucked into the music. But since I got a new computer I had to reformat my iPod and I lost all my running playlists. I have been to busy lets be honest here, lazy to remake them. So I end up running to stupid songs and inevitably if you happy and you freaking know it comes on right around the time I hit a wall. I am certainly not clapping my hands! (oh the joys of having work music on my personal iPod)

But lately I have just let my thoughts wander. I don't really know what I think about, but because I don't have a timer of about 3-4 mins going off (when songs change) time goes faster.

So I may have been converted to an outside runner - maybe.

Also, I fought with a finance midterm ALL weekend. I just got my score back (my teacher grades super fast!!!) and I got an 84%. Now I figured an A was out of the question, this thing was HARD. But this is the first non A I have gotten this semester and I am really pissed about it.

The old, undergraduate me, would have been like Sweet I didn't fail, lets go to the bars and celebrate. But now I am just mad about it. I probably should have waited til tomorrow to check to see if he graded it. But I didn't. Grrrr.

Who is this person?! Is this what a 27 year old looks like? (nope not til Wed at least :-D )


  1. DUDE! Does that mean today is your birthday!?!? If so Happy Birthday, and an 84% is nothing to be upset about! But truthfully, had it been me I too would be pissed.

  2. I've been running (well until my injury that is) without music. I didn't know I could do that but I did and it is an interesting workout.
    The grade is a good grade, not perfect like you'd like but still a good grade. Keep up the good work Angela.
    Take care and God Bless!!

  3. So awesome! I've been following your mileage posts on DM! You are doing great!
