Finals Week, Snow and Running With Soul!

Saying this last week has been “busy” would be a huge understatement.  I’ve been running around like a crazy person trying to finish what seems like a thousand different term papers (more like three or four).  But they are FINALLY all done and I’m down to my last final this afternoon!  Now, we wait for the grades.  


It seems like my last fall semester as an undergrad has just flown by.  I swear, it just started.  Didn’t it?  Don’t get me wrong, I’m THRILLED it’s almost over but with as busy as I was, I feel like I haven’t gotten to enjoy anything.  You know what I have enjoyed though?  All this snow!!




So pretty, right?!  Ok, so Springfield, Missouri isn’t EXACTLY equipped to deal with almost a foot of snow being dumped in the course of less than a week.  Not at all.  It was mayhem and public schools have been out for three days.  Which means I have been off work for three days.  SO awesome when you’re trying to scrape up money to buy Christmas presents, amiright?! 


This has also meant moving workouts indoor because A) who shovels sidewalks?  and B) I’m not trying to die by getting hit by a car running in the street.  I’ve now completed TWO runs over three miles since resuming running again and they have been fantastic!  I’m still very closely monitoring how my knee feels and reminding myself that cross training is JUST as important now as it was when I was in my break.  


Finally, head on over to Too Cute Runner and check out the feature she did on me!  So glad she allowed me to be a part of it and share my story with her readers.  Give her blog a follow!


Until next time
