Cram Time!

It's that time of the semester again. And you know what that means. Time for finals! And time to cram cram cram!!! This will be the end of my sophomore year in college and I'm pretty darn excited. I'm halfway there. Well, with my undergrad. I hope to go on to get my masters, and then eventually, my PhD. Well, I'll see how burnt out I am after graduate school. Ugh. I don't even want to think about that right now. I'm focusing on this week and next week. And that's it for right now. Running has moved to the bottom of my list, although all I want to do is run. It's what I need. Maybe it will help me focus to do some homework? Has that worked for anyone?

I'm taking a look at my race list (to the right) and thinking that maybe my marathon is coming up too soon? It's in January, and that seems like plenty of time to train, but I'm thinking I might want to slow down. Maybe I should PR on my 5k first and then do that on a 10k or a half. Maybe I should save my marathon for next January? I've been looking forward to it for awhile now, but it's a little overwhelming. I've also been thinking about actually joining a running group this summer. I have been talking about joining the UA running team and I'm still interested in that. I've found a few other groups in Tucson (one of which is free!!) and I'm also considering them.

I have a lot to think about. But I'm going to take it one day at a time for now. Let's get through finals first, Jamie, then think about running. It's funny how much I think about running that I have to tell myself to stop! Have a great Tuesday everyone! Be stress free! :)


  1. Don't stress; you will make it through! You will have plenty of time to run. Finals are only a week. You can do it! (and grad school is wayyyyy better than undergrad. Trust me!)

  2. Well, as was said to me when I wanted to take it slow, you can PR on your 5k and do a 10k and a half while you train for your marathon. Speaking from experience, all other distances will seem very do-able and "easy" once you do a marathon. January is plenty of time to train. You actually don't even have to start training until August.


I love what you have to say!
