The Fairest Week in Review: 11/12


Hello, humans! I had yesterday off for Veteran’s Day and used it to cram in my longest run yet. It was supposed to happen on Sunday, but I had a ballet performance on Saturday evening which evidently required a next-day crash; I spent most of the day sleeping. Us artsy types are weird.

Look at my pretty pointe shoes!

But never mind all that. Last week’s training went surprisingly well! Even when I took my run in the morning I cranked out a good one – and I am NOT a morning person. I wish I knew what, exactly, happened so I could replicate the build-up every time, but as it is I’m pretty sure my new food-during-not-before-runs approach is working.

As for music: I was at Moon’s new apartment a couple weekends ago and started messing around in her iTunes library, locating the most ridiculous music I could find in her deepest archives. I summoned some Bon Jovi and inadvertently planted in myself a sudden adoration for “It’s My Life.” I’ve been playing it nonstop during my runs because IT’S MY LIFE IT’S NOW OR NEVER I AIN’T GONNA LIVE FOREVER. Thank you.

And finally, for those of you playing at home, TWENTY-TWO DAYS TO WDW!!!
