- Oakland Turkey Trot- (Thank you BibRave!) 11/22
Wow, this week was just nothing like I’d thought it’d be.
I was back in my office but work was chaos. I came back to a new hire starting on Monday, a surprise announcement of an audit coming down the pipe and just general insane busy-ness.
Then I was still abnormally tired. I was falling asleep in my chair watching TV. I was falling asleep in the break room on my lunch. I did manage to complete a Liift4 workout once but I can’t remember it it was Monday or Tuesday. 😛
I kept meaning to run, I packed my bag every day but things kept happening. Work kept running super late- people, my time card clocked in at over 105 hours. Then when I set an alarm to run in the morning, it was below freezing. I hadn’t brought out the winter running gear yet, wth? I tried for a lunch run, thinking it was fall, temps should be fine- nah, work town hit 86*. I don’t know about you but my hair wouldn’t recover from that for another 3-4 hours of work, let alone stressing about if I smelled.
So that brought me to race weekend. I was doing race day pickup so I was hoping for a shakeout run on Saturday but catching up on other things just saw the time run away from me. Plus I had an early wake up call (2AM!) so I needed to try and get everything together and then to sleep.
Then I received an email-
Wait, what? Is this really happening? I mean I get it but I was also kind of in denial.
